Did Up in Flames inspire GS?

If you think about it, it appears to be so!
1. UIF has a stripped-back production and arrangement, which is characteristic of nearly all songs on GS
2. UIF is led by electronic drums, a first in Coldplay songs. Many songs on GS also use electronic drums.
3. The lyrics of UIF can be interpreted to be a narrator's reflection right after a breakup ("So it's over....")
4. UIF was the last song to be recorded for MX.

So what do you guys think?

It's possible.
It would've fit much better in GS than in MX imho

The production on GS is hardly "stripped-back" in fairness, more like "over-done"

The only similarity is the electronic drum kit.

Stripped back in prose,tone and atmosphere maybe but the album (for the most part save Oceans, O) was very over produced with the synths droning over Jonny's guitar, Avicii EDM piano, Electronic drum kit etc.

It's still a very serene album imo
