It's apparently Roman numeral for 2009. I just wanna know if it has any relevance to the album or song.

Damn you for posting this btw

Hmm, maybe it's a reference to the inauguration of Obama?

Sorry about that :p
What it's really tied to the album?
It's a mystery we have not heard that name until now ...

Wasn't 2009 when LP5 was originally slated for release, before being scrapped/delay?
I'm sure i remember chris saying he wanted to end the decade by releasing an album in December 2009

I think the most logical thing is that it means 2009, probably in reference to the year that song was written.

In My Place inspired coldplay to make another go at it for LP2...
maybe MMIX was the birth of the whole "graffiti/white rose movement" inspiration? Maybe tribute to MJ, like the other coldplayer said. i dunno

X stands for Xylobrytes, I'm calling it now.

Other things to think about:
1. All the little MX's in the artwork
2. The big shiny M
3. The word "madness" that scrolls across the screen in POC.

It's because that was the year of my first Coldplay concert. :nod:
Exactly two years ago today, actually. 09/09/09. Sigh...
A great day to announce the tracklist.

I don´t think it´s roman numeral, otherwise it would be written MMIX, not M.M.I.X. I think it´s another cryptic acronym...

Maybe it's like 42 and is only used for the title.

I bet you're right.
