a spell a rebel yell**
moses*
the one i love
glass of water
lukas
rainy day
atlas
see you soon
hypnotised
miracles "someone special" (with big sean)
something like this (with the chainsmokers)

(not necessarily in that order, though)

*a studio, not live version

**... and i do wonder if there is an extended version of 'a spell a rebel yell' in the can perhaps, the release version does seem to fade out a bit prematurely...

i'd rather have a nice compact collection that would play together as it was a lost album of theirs than a 83-song compendium of the good, but mostly bad and ugly - i think...

It's nice to think about Coldplay potentially releasing an album with some of these obscurities, b-sides, live performances, demos, whatever, but I don't think they'll release an album with basically songs that never made the cut before because they weren't good enough. Also, I don't see the point in a b-side collection. Those songs are already officially released and not hard to obtain.

Anyway, I guess it's fun to speculate.

I came with the idea recently of a series. It's called Missing.Each era would have its own album.It would be labeled Missing:Vol. LP I (or II, or III etc.).The artwork would basically be the original artwork, with the colors inverted, and the words changed so it says Missing then whatever Vol it is. The 4th Missing would be inverted of the Prospekt's March edition Viva La Vida cover, so that way, if you had all the original albums, then the Prospekt's March and Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends edition, then all the Missing, you would have every Coldplay song possible, and you could pair up each album with it's Missing equivalent and the album artworks would all be opposites. I only put in the tracks that are on the internet so I could actually get it on an album. Here are the tracklists:
Missing:Vol. LP I:
Ode to Deodorant
A Ghost

Harmless

Where Is My Boy? by Faultline(feat. Chris Martin)

Missing:Vol. LP III
(FIRST DISC, JUST AUDIO)
Things I Don't Understand
Proof
The World Turned Upside Down
Pour Me(Live)

Since the Ghost Stories era just started like 2 months ago, I haven't gotten to make the full tracklist yet. Here is what I have so far though:
Atlas
Magic(Instrumental)
Midnight(Giorgio Moroder Remix)
All Your Friends*
Ghost Story*
O(Part 2/Reprise)*

*Might change if they really are included in the 2015 follow-up.

Here is a website that I quickly made with the artworks on it : http://missingcoldplay.weebly.com

yea they should do this next year for a stop-gap. plus all huge bands do this or at least a b-sides bonus disc with some new songs. i'd like the Fight For Your Right (To Party) live cover.

"Wish I Was Here" with Cat Power is excellent but doesn't really sound much like a Coldplay song...

Maybe the songs just didn't fit into the feel of the albums they were working on at the time. I think some of these tracks are great...

How about they just release every single song they've worked on in addition to these songs that got finished but never made the cut even as a B sides. Like the X&Y ones. It would be EPIC to hear those. And try to finish unfinished songs.
Btw your missing alternate version of Spies, and your love means everything part 2.

but Your Love Means Everything Pt 2 is Faultline feat Chris, right? not actually Coldplay
