Coldplay have loads of songs, but some sound different live and in a lot cases better.
Which song do you think sounds best?

Well... there are a lot. One of the most beatiful I would say is Viva la Vida in the 2011 tour, with the piano intro.
Politik its also fantastic.

The Scientist is probably my favorite Coldplay live song, from the recent live album in Buenos Aires. I really like how you can hear the crowd singing along. Fix you and Yellow from the same tour are also contenders, I just really like how they left the sounds of the crowd in so you feel like you're there and in the moment. As was mentioned above Viva la Vida live in 2011 is also fantastic.

This has changed before, but after I finally got to see the band live for the first time in 2016, my favorite has been Fix You. Absolutely stunning, it blew me away more than any other song in that set... and there were several other songs that were strong contenders for best song of the night. And I've never really heard a bad version of the song from any other era. The song is amazing on X&Y, but it's something else live.

Oh yeah, all of the live versions of Fix You are phenomenal. The studio version is great, but the live ones carry a lot of emotion. So jealous you got to see it live!

For me it has to be Clocks or Birds. I love the energy of Birds and naturally it's my favorite song from AHFoD. Clocks was my favorite song of all for many years.

In all these years I still haven't seen Coldplay live, but here are my estimates of what are good songs live:

-Everything's Not Lost for cathartic and repetitive singing
-Up & Up for its guitar solo
-VLV for obvious reasons
-Clocks, Charlie Brown for its energy
-UATW
