I just wanted to say, after 5 years of being part of the Coldplay fandom, first on Coldplaying, now on Coldplaying, Twitter and other platforms, a wonderful thing happened today: Coldplay followed me

On this day exactly 5 years ago, a young and innocent person who was just getting really into Coldplay wanted to sign up on a forum called Coldplaying. Faced with the question of what to pick as a use

Today exactly 5 years ago, I joined the Coldplaying community and I don't regret that that. To be honest, it's probably one of the best things that have happened in my life! I had never thought I woul

Can we talk about the elephant in the room:

This forum has been more dead than alive over the last few weeks. WHERE IS EVERYONE ?

 

Burried in work.

Hope to have a bit more time in 2 weeks

According to this French Celebrity Tracker Coldplay are in studio with in Paris with a soccer player I've never heard of. No signs of slowing down it looks like. Could this be confirming the theory that LiB is for World Cup?

Huh, Eden Hazard and Coldplay.

How did I miss that (being Belgian). [emoji16]

 

Edit: the guy in the picture doesn't look like him though.

Is it just me, or does the beat in Daylight match that of Green Eyes? Was listening to AROBTTH in traffic and couldn’t hear the vocals to Green Eyes at first. Since it follows Daylight, at first I thought Daylight just kept going!

Happy Birthday to The Scientist, released with B-sides 1.36 and :heart: I Ran Away ("very nearly made the album !") :heart: on this day 15 years ago (4th of November 2002)

By the way, everywhere it says it was released on November 4 but the promo discs say November 11. Does anyone know where this discrepancy is coming from ?

:heart_eyes: Can't wait for the full video to turn up ! One of the better Chris collaborations. Funny, only a few days ago I thought about the song again and listened to it, it is really nice.

Also: Chris not only stops his own band's songs halfway through, but also other artists' songs :joy:

Anyone feel like this is really final? Not like they'll never do anything else but somehow I feel like they're really starting to slow down. I feel like after these last two concerts they're going to maybe make an EP, play a few concerts here and there but I'm not so sure about releasing a whole album. And if they do, will they really do another huge two-year tour? I feel like if they do it won't be for a long time. Didn't Will even say that? But I'm not even sure why, just that they haven't really said they're working on anything else and Chris said all that stuff about how this era is the end of something. And he said he didn't want to play past 33 and now they're like 40. AHFOD had such a feeling of dreams coming true that I can believe it, but since I haven't been a fan very long and seen what it was like at the end of other eras I could be totally wrong. I really hope I'm wrong...I always wish I got into Coldplay earlier even though I was so young. Anyone else feel the same way or is it always like this at the end of an era?

Only time will tell.

 

I agree with you that they are now "older," their kids are getting older, they just did one of the year's biggest tours, and to me seeing them live, it certainly felt like a tour that tried hard to combine all of their greatest efforts and eras. In other words, almost a celebration or farewell tour. With all that spectacle and color, it's hard to imagine what they would do next. Plus you do have some indication from the band that maybe they'll take a break.....

 

BUT on the other hand--this has been one of their most productive eras. During this tour, they've recorded a great EP, wrote another song soon to be released, and have taken a studio on tour with them! This tour has had great covers, soundcheck writing, great guests, and cool improv songs. More is that the band has said in interviews that they feel the most like a band in a long time, and are having a lot of fun writing music. So maybe the break will only be a few months in 2018 before we get new material?

 

I personally am optimistic and subscribe to the latter. I think that they have many albums left in store--but whether those albums will feel like traditional eras and tours remains to be seen. Modern music is proving that groups can easily release music digitally and release a lot of material, singles, EP's because album sales don't matter as much.

I agree with that.

The boys are at a peak of their carrer and they can't stop making music now.

Plus the inspiration is still there.

I think that they will take a break next year though, and come back to the studio in 2019.

As for the next tour, I'm sure they will find new ideas for more spectacular shows.

Remember that MX shows were impressive and everybody at that time was wondering if they could do better. They did with AHFOD tour.

I'm sure they can go further for the next era tour.

"Good things are coming our way" !

I'd put money down that when we do get the next "thing" from Coldplay, it will be something more intimate/built more for a tour like they did in 2014 with Ghost Stories.

It seems like they really liked the sequence of coming off a big tour (MX), and instead of wearing themselves out with another big, 2-year tour, putting their energy back into the studio to create something smaller (Ghost Stories) so they could build up to doing something big again.

 

If I had to guess, we will get something similar over the course of the next few years.

Given the Kaleidoscope EP (and I'm assuming they will release Life is Beautiful at this point), it's clear they still have a load of ideas, and I'm sure Chris is writing constantly. They'll be thinking about the next project before we know it. They'll probably take a break for a few months, then realize they should make hay while the sun shines.

Okay but for real. I have this theory that Coldplay would actually be a fantastic metal band. For other fans of metal out there, the best metal music tends to be slow and build to great melodic crescendos---WHICH IS EXACTLY COLDPLAY's FORMULA. A kinda silly cover band did a metal version Miracles on Youtube, and the riff sounded amazing (the cheesy vocals and numetal percussion not so much)

 

Coldplay has dabbled in virtually EVERY genre at this point (yes, even trap) but has never released a strictly punk/hardcore/metal song. Maybe 1.36 could be considered slightly punk, but not fast enough. Really hope they decided to put one together sometime on a future release. Imma start sending fan mail.

Tonight during the Patriots vs. Broncos Sunday Night Football on NBC in America... the first of Jonny's two solos on Hurts Like Heaven was played during a highlight reel

I didn't watch the game yesterday!!! That's my favorite song!!!
