Your Coldplay Dream Setlist

Recommended Posts

I just had an idea. For the 10th anniversary of AROBTTH they should do a set where they play the whole album through, like Muse did for Origin of Symmetry last year. Of course they would also have to add fan favourites and hits on to it as well (whilst also promoting MX) so it would have to go something like this:

 

1. Politik

2. In My Place

3. God Put A Smile Upon Your Face

4. The Scientist

5. Clocks

6. Daylight

 

(B-Stage)

7. Green Eyes

8. Warning Sign

 

9. A Whisper

10. A Rush Of Blood To The Head

11. Amsterdam

 

(Main Set)

12. Mylo Xyloto

13. Hurts Like Heaven

14. Yellow

15. Major Minus

16. Lovers In Japan

17. Talk

18. Viva La Vida

19. Charlie Brown

20. Paradise

 

(encore)

21. Trouble

22. Fix You

23. Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall

 

How awesome would this be? :awesome:

 

While a cool idea, there would be plenty of unplayed songs that could/should be played in place of some AROBTTH songs.

^Lost! seems a little lost there :tongue:, it might sound flat after the rock momment Violet Hill, White Shadows and Talk would provide, I would try it before those 3...

Hurts Like Heaven

Clocks

In My Place

Yellow (with LOTS of baloons :awesome:)

Yes

Glass Of Water or 42, can't decide!

 

B-stage

Reign Of Love (Chris and Jonny having a momment)

Up In Flames (Will and Guy come in)

The Scientist (only Chris, the piano and thousans of fans)

Postcards From Far Away

Back To the A stage

Viva La Vida

I would actually love them to do a series of gigs, let's say from tuesday to saturday, in which they play a whole album each night. Just the album's tracklist as the setlist for that night. Maybe with some b-sides, ep-songs or unreleased songs before or after.

I think it would be really special to go to such a concert and it's probably a great way for Coldplay to reflect on themselves and see what's the next step for the sixth album.

My dream list..

1) Life in Technicolor (served as intro)

2)Amsterdam (favorite :D)

3)God put a smile upon your face

4)Lost!

5)Shiver

6)Violet hill

7)Viva la Vida

13)Death will never conquer (Wills song!)

14)Death and all his friends

15)Clocks

16)Charlie Brown

17)In my place

18)Paradise

19)Politik

20)42

21)Strawberry swing

22)What if

23)A rush of blood to the head

24)Lovers in Japan

25)Yes!

26)Fix you - Reasoning for "Fix you" as the final song, personally to me the lyrics are just perfect. I also love it when the crowd sings along, gives such a wonderful feeling :smug:

 

 

I wish Coldplay would have more of their older songs in the set lists they use today. I believe most people will be going to their concerts because they've heard Paradise and think that most songs which Coldplay sing are like that certain one.

I'm hoping that when I see them in May (May 29th, Ricoh Arena - Anyone else coming?:)) they will use some of their other songs rather than the ones from Mylo Xyloto :\

I too want to get rid of PoC, it seems very cheesy with Rihanna on the screen & not something I would enjoy. I would bring back Politik & some of you would disagree with this, but I wouldn't have Warning Sign. This is my dream setlist (obviously it won't happen on this tour);

1. Life in Technicolor.

2. Violet Hill.

3. Yellow.

4. In My Place.

5. Talk.

6. Hurts Like Heaven.

7. DLIBYH.

8. Lovers in Japan.

9. Politik.

10. Shiver.

11. Trouble.

12. The Scientist.

13. Moving to Mars.

14. Lost!

15. Spies.

B-Stage

16. Green Eyes.

17. UATW.

18. Don't Panic.

Normal Stage again (or whatever you call idk)

19. Paradise.

20. Clocks.

Encore 1.

21. ETIAW.

22. Fix You.

23. Up With The Birds.

Encore 2.

24. Amsterdam.

25. Death & All His Friends.

This would be absolute perfection, although it would never happen.

22. Every Teardrop is a Waterfall

 

Screw the C-stage, walking to it costs too much time. (Although the idea is very cool)

Still a decent length (90-100 min. I guess).

 

Directly hearing Politik smashing after the fading outro of Hurts Like Heaven seems pretty awesome to me. Only song which is missing is In My Place, although live it's a good song, it had it's time. Maybe swapping it with Yellow, Major Minus or Clocks. Clocks just has to move from the encore, it's not a good encore song (anymore) or they have to play it so intense again as in the Toronto show.

The B-stage songs can be swapped with Death And All His Friends, Strawberry Swing and warning Sign. A little bit of changing in that songs.

 

How longer you are busy with it, more songs come in mind to me :P

Considering the re-introduction of the C-Stage, I wish they would use it for more than one song. I think they should rotate what songs they play on the C-Stage (always keeping UATW of course) with a selection of some of their more intimate songs. And they should definitely do 2 encores, it feels weird that they were doing 2 encores in the Viva tour, and now they've gone back to only one again. So here would be a good setlist for this tour:

 

Mylo Xyloto

Hurts Like Heaven

In My Place

Major Minus

Lovers In Japan

The Scientist

Yellow

Strawberry Swing

White Shadows

 

B-Stage:

U.F.O.

Princess Of China

Up In Flames

 

Don't Let It Break Your Heart

Viva La Vida

Charlie Brown

Paradise

Life Is For Living

 

C-Stage:

A Message

Us Against The World

Up With The Birds

 

Encore:

Clocks

Fix You

Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall

 

Encore 2:

Politik

Everything's Not Lost

 

A Message could be rotated with other songs like Warning Sign, Sparks, Green Eyes etc.

The last two songs before the B-Stage could be rotated between different Viva and X&Y songs.

The main set closer could be rotated between Life Is For Living, Amsterdam and Death And All His Friends.

After two hours crying and don't not which songs should make the final cut, I came up with my perfect setlist:

 

Chris rap song: Kanye West – Stronger

Intro Song: A Classic like “Piano man’’ or ‘’Imagine’’

 

Mylo Xyloto

1. Hurts Like Heaven *Xylobands*

2. Paradise *Xylobands*

3. In My Place/Daylight

4. Clocks (Very cool transmission with Daylight)

5. Major Minus

6. Lovers in Japan/Strawberry Swing *With LiJ the Butterflies <3*

7. Yellow *Yellow Balls*

8. The Scientist

9. Princess of China *Rihanna as a Tupac hologram*

10. Death and All His Friends

 

X-Stage

11. Don’t Panic

12. U.F.O.

13. Warning Sign/Spies/Green Eyes

 

14. Politik

15. White Shadows (Remixed Version like they did with Talk & GPASUYF)/GPASUYF (Remixed Version)

16. Viva La Vida

17. Glass of Water/Violet Hill/Cemeteries of London

18. Fix You *FIREWORKS :D:D*

 

C-Stage

18. Life in Technicolor II (Acoustic Version only Chris)

19. Shiver/Everything’s Not Lost/Trouble

20. Us against the World/ Moving to Mars

 

Encore I

21. Square One

A Hopeful Transmission

22. Don’t Let It Break Your Heart *Xylobands*

23. The Hardest Part/Speed of Sound/Talk/Amsterdam

M.M.I.X

24. Every Teardrop is a Waterfall *Lightshow like Glastonbury*

 

Encore II

25. Charlie Brown (Think of Suddenly the lights going off again, the xylobands start flashing again & then the song) *Lasers & Xylobands*

26. A Message/X&Y

27. Up With The Birds *Smoke machine on stage and let the band slowly disappear*

 

I don't think this is possible for the Mylo Xylotour because the setlist is already formed but when they decide to do a reprise this would be perfect

The ''/'' means that 1 song can be played that evening and they can switch between the songs this is to keep some variation in the setlist unlike they have now.

 

Also a nice detail is how they open a different set with an album opener (except the last set)
