Format: Audio CD
Let me start by saying that I feel the best rock bands have come from the U.K. (I'm from Canada). Also Chris Martin's voice is I believe one of the most instantly recognizable voices upon hearing a Coldplay song immediately. He has the must luscious recordable voice in keeping as well Thom Yorke of Radiohead.
However, having said that I still have to say that the last 2 Coldplay CD's I feel have fallen short of potential greatness. Are they worth buying still; absolutely. Will you have them in your collection for a lifetime; for sure. Will their music stand the test of time; without a doubt.
But here is where I feel Coldplay (or I should say their producers) are falling off track. On some of the songs e.g. 42; the song starts off with such a spellbinding vocal performance by Chris Martin & then over halfway through the song...it is lessoned by throwing in bland rock instrumentation which I think totally diminishes the beautiful beginning of the song.
Please guys if your going to do a rock song....then do a rock song....if your going to do a ballad (& brilliant ones at that) then do the ballad; but don't mix the 2 together!!!
I really think this could have been a really historically memorable (& it still will on a different level) CD on a much higher level had they not woven the 2 styles of music together.
That is what made "Parachutes" & " A Rush of Blood to the Head" so amazingly fantastic CD's. I wish the good old boys from Brit would go back to this way when mixing, producing & colaborrating for their CD's because those 2 CD's I think will go down in history along with Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon or Radiohead's The Bends as being the best rock CD's written.

I have just recently begun listening to Coldplay. I tend to like music that has a richness of melody, beat and some orchestration. I also like when groups use real instruments in the background as opposed to lots of synthetic produced sounds. It harkens back to a period when groups travelled with an orchestra and had real violins, trumpets, piano's etc. This is pretty rare today. I swear I can hear real background instruments in this disk. The melody is just a little more sweeter and the sound evoked and creates a vision as you listen.
Back in the late 70's and 80's I was a real fan of Supertramp for many of the same reasons. Viva La Vida and Fools Overture have some similarities. It seems to me that perhaps Coldplay is taking up where Supertramp left off and are doing a fine job of it. At first I found that I quickly breezed through the disk, making premature assumptions, and then the more I listened to it, the more I began to like it. It grows on you to the point where I haven't found a group in a long time where I like all the tracks, usually there is one or two and the rest is mediocre. However this is definately not one of them. Everyone has their own tastes and their own reasons for listening to music, but I would recommend Viva La Vida and Coldplay. Without "typecasting" them they truly are the Supertramp of the 21st century.

I found both albums really good. Neither to the caliber of "A rush of Blood". But nevertheless decent albums on their own. Especially good were the remixes on "Prospekts March".

Prospekt marches to it's own beat July 15 2009
By William J. Merrill - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Viva La Vida is a great CD, but I wasn't really sure how the Prospekt March Edition would hold up. I was pleasantly surprised. Some of the tracks seem to be a real departure from Coldplay's usual style. "Lost (With Jay-Z)" is bashed by a lot of people, but I really respect that Coldplay just wanted to do something different (although I DIDNT respect that they allowed swearing in this album - I was really surprised. Rainy Day is probably my favorite track on the Prospekt's side... it's just so upbeat you can't help but love it. Really, if you like Coldplay, this is probably their best collection yet.

Nice edition! Nov. 26 2008
By Andrew D. Lossing - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For those who love Coldplay's latest offering, this is a great way to round your Viva experience out with the new EP, especially if you got the original album electronically. While it's not the most red-carpet edition imaginable, it is stylish and quite affordable. For those wondering whether to buy the EP, do so - it's a nearly seamless addition to the inspiration of Viva, with the sole exception of a couple dozen seconds of silly rapping overlaying "Lost+", unnecessary since it's the same version of the song on the album. Listen to it once.

Jay-Z. . .really? Dec 2 2008
By R. Tannery - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A worthy extension of Viva for Coldplay fans. A bright spot for me was to hear vocals overlayed to the "Life in Technicolor" track (part ii). . .but did we really need to hear Jay-Z rapping over (my favorite track) Lost!? The other material here is not earth shattering, but enjoyable. 4 stars moves to 3 for the Rush like mistake (roll the bones) of adding a train wreck into the middle of a great track. It's like listening to Bach and hearing Angus Young's guitar crunch jammed into the middle of the symphony.

Amazing! March 6 2009
By Zachary T. Harker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Just going to point out first that it does not come in a standard CD case.

Regardless, both CDs are amazing. I especially love the two Life in Technicolor tracks (first tracks on each disc.)

Coldplay's Greatest Album Sept. 7 2009
By satro343 - Published on Amazon.com
Before purchasing this album, I had doubts whether the tracks were worth listening to and after hearing first-hand how bad X&Y was, I was justified in having second thoughts about buying it. After hearing that the album had dropped down to $5 for a limited time, I decided to buy it and experience it first-hand. What I experienced was an almost perfect album. I have to admit that it does stray from their earlier albums like "A Rush Of Blood To The Head" but not being a hardcore Coldplay listener, I welcomed the change. Songs like "Lost!", "42", "Lovers in Japan" to name a few showcase Coldplay's new and welcomed direction where they expirement with various styles. Not to mention all the songs are extremely catchy and they will be stuck in your head for days. Here are some of my comments on the songs:

Life in Technicolor - 4/5; Short but sweet
Cemeteries of London - 4/5
Lost! - 5/5; Catchy
42 - 5/5
Lovers in Japan - 5/5; One of my favorites, awesome lyrics
Yes - 5/5; Also my favorite, features Martin singing looow, middle eastern section
Viva La Vida - 5/5; Amazing of course
Violet Hill - 4/5; Love the guitar solo
Strawberry Swing - 2/5; Okay, could have been left out
Death And All His Friends - 5/5; Great ending to a great album

Disc 2 is also awesome. I don't have time to comment on each song but make sure you buy the Prospekt's March edition! Why some of them were left out of Disc 1 is suprising really.

In summary, buy the album for you and 10 of your friends. It's that good.
