Nostalgia? Remembering Mylo Xyloto from the beginning.

Warning: This is a huge post :lol:

I really wanted to give you guys the tweets with their exact date with day, month and everything but twitter didn't help me =/

From the moment I've seen this man, I knew something huge was about to come.

 

It's 9 months since Mylo Xyloto was released, but it's story is older, and I am one of the fortunate people that followed it since the rumors of a new Coldplay album started to become strong.

Today, when I stop and remember all the things Mylo Xyloto era has given to us, I feel very nostalgic, but the most special thing was to receive all the news and solve the puzzles with you, Coldplayng guys.

 

So, I decided to make a timeline, from the first rumors to today.

Let's have fun

This was one of the best moments ever. I remember it was a really cold day here in Brazil (yes, it's possible). It was 4AM. I still have the record of the first airplay. It's 30 minutes of a bit of Coldplay's story and some live songs, then ETIAW.

 

Loved it from the first moment.

 

But the best was still to come.

Rock Im Park was their first festival after ETIAW and I don't remember exactly if we were expecting new songs aside ETIAW, but they came.

Hurts Like Heaven, Charlie Brown, Princess Of China, Us Against the World and Major Minus. It was more than we could ever expect. Yes guys, it was the first time some of our little faves came into light.

Unfortunately Rock Im Park was not broadcasted, so everything we had was videos from people in the show. Until next day...

Meanwhile (I don't remember exactly where this enter among all this above), Spark, our Coldplaying friend, came along with the theory that the new album (until now called with love "LP5") was going to be called Mylo Xyloto.

 

To remember our paranoid theories about what was Mylo Xyloto and the inspiration for this (which was a bit wrong, a bit right, in the end), go to this thread:

Thank you if you read everything (hope you all have patience LOL), it gave me a little job to do, but it's nice to remember all this.

 

Oh, and of course, thanks for the responsibles for giving us all of this:

 

THANK YOU COLDPLAY

Classic stuff, I remember it like it was yesterday. I actually still listen to the Rock am Ring recordings today and flashback to last year when all this was going on. Good times, thanks for posting all this in one thread, very useful and very helpful :D.

That's awesome, thank you! :D

 

And btw, I remember that the photoshoot happened on the 23rd May 2011, ETIAW hints started on the 24th May and ended on the 30th May (one hint every day, except those three gifs on the 25th May) with the single announcement on the 31st May.

I know this because I did a review of the month of May:http://www.coldplaying.com/forum/showthread.php?t=91296

This is great! Thank you. :)

 

I remember the ETIAW running man more than anything. I was on a trip with my senior class, and we were leaving to some mall. I checked Facebook and voila -- new Coldplay. That was fun. I loved getting to see new videos/GIFs each day until graduation.

I remember the first listen of ETIAW live on radio the most - it was the most amazing feeling ever hearing it, words can't describe how I felt. I remember they played it twice in a row, I then listened to it on repeat probably about 30 times in one day haha. Still one of my favourite songs from this era :)

Great work! I remember listening to the original recording of POC and trying so hard to figure out everything about it. In retrospect, it's so sloppy - too much synth/little guitar, Chris's singing is not great and he mucks the lyrics in a couple places; although the drums + bass was interesting. Still sounds good but it's so interesting to go from then to now.

Thanks so much for taking the time to post this! I remember the teasing you tube videos for ETIAW like it was yesterday, it was so exciting! Then staying up all night to hear it on the radio the night before my college graduation, and then knowing the words to the new songs already when I saw them at Lollapalooza and ACL last year. Thanks again

I find it hilarious how that was everyone's favorite new song -- and now it's easily our least favorite, as a whole. :lol:

I don't remember when/where this was from, but I remember R42 saying something about UIF, cool live guitar work by Jonny on Paradise (which really is nice, the extra slides), and the "violently life affirming" nature of DLIBYH. I think this was after the ACL taping/festival. That was also a fun time.

 

I find it hilarious how that was everyone's favorite new song -- and now it's easily our least favorite, as a whole. :lol:

 

:lol: Too true mate...although in my opinion the current live version, disregarding the silliness of Rihanna being a video, sounds the very best.

 

The Chris dance during the middle of the song is pretty epic in the Rock Im Park version. :D

Wow!!!! This is SO cool!!! I love the beginning cause I wasn't here for that!!! Thank you sooo much!!! Someone should do this for Viva La Vida(I would forever love anyone who did that)!!!!! :lol: :D

What a great post! I remember seeing all the teasers in Coldplay's page, but I was not in the forum yet, so seeing all of them here brought all the excitement back! It was great!

Thanks for the breakdown of events! it's almost a year since the release of mylo and still surprises never stop coming. We still have to wait for the live film and the comics itself (and maybe an EP which is unlikely to come out any moment soon).
