Firstly, sorry if there's already a thread or section like this. I couldn't find one.

I think there are some really underrated songs from this era, and I think they deserve discussion too :D

For example,
Bucket for a Crown
The Dubliners
The Goldrush
Death Will Never Conquer
Mining on the Moon
The Fall of Man
Bloodless Revolution
First Steps
The Man Who Swears
Loveless
Spanish Rain / Don Quixote

And there are more. I personally love what I've heard of these. I really hope at some point these are released in some form, however unlikely that is.

What do you think?

They will most likely be released in the future.

I mean, think about it...
Coldplay is one of the biggest and most influential bands in the world! If something happened to the band, or some major celebration of Coldplay, or something else, what are the chances that there would be major re-releases of their albums? Special Editions in the future? Or even a compilation album with unreleased songs?

Think about it even further...
Pink Floyd in the past year had a major re-release of three of their albums with special collectors items, unreleased tracks and everything!
Michael Jackson, for the 25th anniversary of Thriller had an unreleased track in the re-release of Thriller. In the year he died there was a major re-release of Thriller and Bad special editions. This is It featured unreleased tracks.
There was a major release of a Nirvana compilation album with nothing but B-Sides and unreleased material too.

It is a possibility that Coldplay will have a release like this in the Future.

Hopefully. Amy Winehouse's unreleased tracks are being released soon too, I think. I hope this will happen!

I never heard of those songs, only The Goldrush and Death Will Never Conquer. Any chance to hear the other songs or are they just documented as existent?

Cheers!

There are some demo's which you can find on youtube and the Dubliners/Don Quixote have been played live!

Shame they never released it. But I think the same what is said here above. on the special 20st anniversary cd's or when coldplay is dead the songs will be released! and the first anniversary is from Parachutes, on July 10, 2020!

Don Quixote is really beautiful song. When I heard it in the first time, I was dancing all day with this song. And other demos also are pretty good! :)

Bloodless revolution is really cool, would have features so well on VLV, maybe instead of 42

It seems that Prospekt's March had a better pool of songs to choose from than what ended up on it; that could've probably been another full-length album on its own.
