<strong>The rejected artwork for Coldplay's 2013 single, from the Hunger Games : Catching Fire soundtrack, <em>Atlas</em> has surfaced online. It's believed to be from before the band hired Czech born artist, Mila Fürstová for their sixth album, <em>Ghost Stories</em>.</strong><!--more-->


The revelation is in the form of an artwork video hosted by recentlyrejected.com, designed by Mario Hugo and Sam Mason as a process sketch for the band:

Mario Hugo's design (co-produced with Micah Lidberg) for the lyrical animation video for <em>Atlas</em> was approved however. You can watch it in glorious HD below:

Wow that looked so beautiful and different.
I must say though I still do love the lyric video they made, I don't know which one I like best...

Why wait so much to share them? :S
Never underestimate the power of planned releasing of unseen footage to keep the interest about the band up high :3

WOW That was beautiful. Personally I really love orreries and this looks like it could have been such a cool video for the song. Still I love both and any of them would have been excellent. But you gotta love these precious little hidden nuggets of info :3
