    May 23rd "Speed of Sound" single comes out
    June 6th - "X&Y" comes out.
    Track listing is as follows:
    1. Square One
    2. What If
    3. White Shadows
    4. Fix You
    5. Talk
    6. X&Y
    7. Speed of Sound
    8. A Message
    9. Low
    10. The Hardest Part
    11. Swallowed In The Sea
    12. Twisted Logic

    Anyone looking forward to this as much as I am?
    Parachutes was alright, a bit slow. A Rush of Blood to the Head was one of the best albums ever. Really makes me wonder how X&Y will be, they have a lot to live up to. But from what I hear so far it's pretty good.

    iTunes now has the first release "Speed of Sound" for download. I've listened to it three times and really enjoy it.

    I can't freakin' wait for this new album. The best musical group currently out there!!

    I read a recent article on the new CD and it stated that this is probably their best yet, with a great array of pop/rock tracks and some tunes that are expected to be included in the live shows.

    You can listen to Speed of Sound single at Coldplay.com just sign up/in to their fan web access...Coldplay is my favorite band right now. I cant wait to add this new album to my Coldplay Ipod playlist!!! If anyone lives in the area, they are playing at the Coachella Valley Music Festival on April 30th. Check out details at Coachella Music

    Post back here if you go, although there is likely a Coachella thread in this forum somewhere already i suppose. -R

    Have you got connections, or how do you know you can get tickets? That show is going to sell out in matter of a few minutes if not sooner. I'd like to go, but the last time that I tried to make it to a small show like that (Tool at the Riviera) it sold out in less than 3 minutes and I had to pay $300 for a scalped ticket. I like Coldplay, but there not worth $300.

    Coldplay seems to have used some Radiohead influences on the new album. I've heard some of the songs, albeit live bootlegs from some shows they played earlier in the year. But nonetheless they sound great.
    I think this is one of the most anticipated albums of the year. I still think A Rush of Blood to the Head is one of the greatest albums of all time.
    Speed of Sound does sound really good. Especially turned up nice and lound on a good system. [​IMG]

    No hookups here, but hopefully I'll get lucky. I don't think the concert has been talked about much so hopefully it won't be that hard to get tix.

    I'll be looking forward to it slightly interested. I enjoyed A Rush of Blood to the Head, despite it not being the pick-me-up album I usually buy. But if they can keep the tracks distinctive and solid, like on ARoBttH, I think they may have a solid follow-up I might go for.

    MTV (blah) has the album streaming.
    http://www.mtv.com/bands/az/coldplay/896800/album.jhtml

    It's not the greatest quality but I just can't wait for the album, I'm so there next Tuesday morning.

    The video for Speed of Sound, while not what I thought it was going to be, nor can really any video compare to "The Scientist" it's a good video, you can probably check it out on the same MTV site.

    the video was blah ... it was like they were testing out the stage lighting and decided to make a video out of it.

    Mark Romanek directed Johnny Cash's "Hurt" video, among others, but I think Johnny's is his biggest one. He's a decent director, seems to be on the side of less is better when it comes to production and sets and such.
