🪐CHECK OUT THE LATEST NEWS AND RUMOURS ON COLDPLAY'S UPCOMING ALBUM🪐

Random Coldplay thoughts...


Recommended Posts

What other milestones should I aim for fellow Coldplayers?

I don't know if that makes sense, but a few I can think of would be:

- having something signed from the band

- being front row at a concert

- visiting the Bakery

- meeting and talking to the band in person

- 100K posts on Coldplaying :D

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

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

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

Good suggestions. Visiting the Bakery was on my list if I did go to London on the 25th, but I didn't (heart and all that!) so I will save that for another time. I do have 2 things signed by the band - well one all the band and one by Chris alone and I have been at the front of the C stage at Cardiff so I suppose I am not doing too badly. 100K posts?? That will take some years! :) And as for meeting and chatting with them? Well see above - I would be truly happy then!

Has anyone else used the 'contact button on the Coldplay.com website? For some reason it is not working for me! :( When I hit 'send' on my message I get a response saying my message has not been sent. Has anyone else experienced this? Or as I have sent a message in the past have I used my one message. There does not seem to be an option to query this anywhere.

...this is just sad. I can't tell if this was meant to be a mostly lighthearted joke from Chris or a deeply personal comment on how the criticism does still hurt...

I think those comments about Glastonbury and about the Superbowl performance hurt Chris deeply. He always says that criticism doesn't get him, and normally it doesn't, but these remarks really hurt him. But it wasn't because of these Tweets that Coldplay doesn't play Glastonbury this year. They just weren't asked, because when the list of participants was published the organizers didn't yet know whether Coldplay had new music, as their 8th album hadn't been released.

Hi, the new era definitely had me excited for new music, but its also nice to see the forum kicking again. One of those things about the community im looking forward to are the Coldplaying awards. We havent had one last year, so looking forward to the 2019 ones!

 

Here's 2017's

Here's my random Coldplay thought. Will we ever hear the Big Fat Noises' Panic EP!?

I'm so confused about how exactly Guy joined the band. Chris loves to talk about he started playing with Jonny and Will joining (and maybe those are more interesting stories, especially Will's) but we rarely hear much about Guy joining and what I have heard doesn't really line up. I was watching a documentary from the Viva era recently where Will said that it was Guy that had the Fender Rhodes and Chris sought him out, instead of the other way around like it says here. I've even heard that Guy demanded to join Chris and Jonny when he was drunk from a few sources but I saw an interview where he denied that, or at least that he begged to join (they didn't bring up him being drunk). I feel like this could be a case of a pretty ordinary story that no one really remembers, but it could also be something Guy or the others doesn't really want to share so they'll kind of vaguely gloss over it when the topic comes up. If that is the case I don't want to bring attention to something they'd rather keep private, but how he came into the band seems like kind of a big deal. Am I crazy and overthinking this or is there more of a story here? Does anyone know something I don't?

I’m rearranging my bedroom with a Coldplay theme! It’s not done yet, and I still don’t have a place to display my records, but what do you think?

 

(Sorry for the bad lighting)

@carolina I noticed those inconcistencies in the Guy story too, but then all that has been said isn't mutually exclusive. What I mean is, Chris could have sought out Guy and Guy could have demanded to be in the band and both things happened and as it often is when you meet lots of new people, things are a blur and no one can really tell what happpened first.

Does anyone know if there will be another end of decade clear out sale like they had with VLV where they auctioned off gear for charity? Not that I’d be able to afford any of it anyway...

About a year ago I was hoping for one and hoping I'd have saved up some money by then...well, this didn't happen so I'm low-key hoping no end-of-decade sale will happen :D

I think most of us wouldn't be able to afford any of it if that's the case :joy:
