I got the 2016 poster which I plan to frame with my ticket and confetti.
And I got the Christmas mugs and a frisbee!

Most of us are with our families right now, but in case somebody is, for whatever reason, alone and maybe a bit depressed, there is this Christmas "album" with Coldplay songs and covers you could listen to and forget your troubles. I made it for the Listening Party originally:

This is lovely, thanks for sharing. I always dig up all these on YouTube each year but it's so nice to have them all in one string. Had a nice Christmas morning but having a hard time winding down back to reality after this week, so this is really nice to have tonight.

Did anyone get anything Coldplay related for Christmas?
My sister and brother-in-law got me the X&Y vinyl! ... I got AROBTTH five or six years ago when I stared collecting vinyl but have been slow to add, since I want to save money and I have these all on both my original CDs and also digital. But I really love having vinyl so this is lovely gift. It's so beautiful and came with a big poster I can't decide whether I want to hang it up or keep in mint condition in the sleeve haha. Now I have 4/7 albums on vinyl, getting there!


Also, this isn't actually Coldplay-related, but my mom gave me this and as soon as I saw it I said "Oh my god, I can feel like I'm at a Coldplay concert when I take a shower" ... she was like "I know, that's why I got it for you" .... haha!



But the BEST Christmas gift for sure was just fate letting me get to Chris's little benefit show in NYC on Wednesday, which took a series of small miracles and was basically the perfect night in every way. <3

Hope everyone had a nice Christmas (or other holiday) and has a good end to the year! It's really keeping my spirits high knowing I'm going to get to see them again in 2017!

Merry Xmas to everybody! I couldn't come here earlier... hope you all had a very good Christmas Day with your family and friends :)

This year I didn't receive any Coldplay gift because my family doesn't know what else to give me haha! I already have all the CD collection and In Spain there isn't much CP merchandising at stores (practically nothing)... besides, my parents don't usually buy things on internet... so no CP for me this time haha :laughing:

PD: I've been listening to this song like 34546 times... love it!

The poster is a lot bigger than I expected! The mugs and frisbee are there for comparison, and you can see how small they look compared to the poster.

So excited for you! I was very surprised when I found the poster in my X&Y vinyl. I still have it folded because I can't figure out where to put it!

I thought it would be smaller too, it looks so nice! ... I'm tempted to order one now, if they still have them in the store. But I know if I do I'll end up putting something else in my basket and it will just go downhill. I remember looking at Coldplay shirts in like 2001ish (probably knock-offs), and they were like $20 but I thought "I don't need a shirt with a band on it, I can't spend $20 on that" so I didn't get one ... here it is, 2016, I'm buying pencils with Coldplay printed on the side and a faux Christmas sweater with their name on it. LOL.

Yeah I'm pretty tight on poster space, my AHFOD concert poster and David Gilmour lithograph from this year are still sitting framed on the floor. So I might leave it in the sleeve for now! It just looks so neat. I love the X&Y code imagery, it just brings back such nice memories and it's so bold and simple. I'd put the vinyl itself in a vinyl frame but it weighs so much, haha ... I didn't realize it was so chunky.

Hi! Hope everyone had a great Christmas! I didn't get anything Coldplay related, only a lovely tweet with a Chris photo :) And I spent Christmas in Mexico City, it's always good to be back to this city that gave me many great memories, specially a Coldplay concert :)

Sad to see they're breaking up since I enjoy their music a lot, but I'm gonna see them and Coldplay next year!

Merry Christmas again!
Thanks for sharing. Btw, I just realized I gave you your 1000th like haha. Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you get to spend a lot of time with loved ones and have wonderful holidays[emoji173]

Since Christa is MIA, I'll do the annual grand reopening/bump of the Christmas thread. It's December! Time to listen unashamed to Christmas songs! Get the decorations out! Put a little Santa hat in your avatar! Let it snow (in the northern hemisphere)!

Sooo here I am posting the same song I post here every year because all I want is for it to get some recognition. Here's the best Christmas song ever written:

Love the Christmassy forum layout!
The Coldplaying app isn't celebrating Christmas I think. [emoji17]

And it's funny that the "old" Coldplaying layout looks different than the Coldplaying 2017 layout. [emoji16]
