Radio edits and single versions

Hi all - first post.

I am trying to put together a digital Coldplay singles compilation starting with Bigger Stronger and ending with Miracles (Someone Special) - c 41 tracks.

My strong preference is to use radio edits and single versions wherever possible. One of my pet hates is when an artist releases a greatest hits / singles compilation and includes album versions.

My collection of Now That's What I Call Music albums have come in handy for sourcing some of these single mixes but I am having difficulty tracking down the following on iTunes, 7 Digital, Juno, Qobuz etc:

The Scientist
A Head Full Of Dreams

Any help appreciated. AFAIK The Scientist is on a Virgin Chill Out CD from 2002 which is easy to find used. However a lot of the others were on promo CDRs - God knows if they'll still play if tracked down. Surely there should be digital copies out there to purchase? (320 kbps MP3s would suffice)

The Scientist (edit) is on the regular Scientist promo disc from Coldplay. I have this disc, if you haven't gotten the track yet I could rip it for you.
