<strong>Ghost Stories Live 2014 is just around the corner and in anticipation, here are 5 awesome things we all can't wait for on the Live 2014 Blu-Ray/DVD/CD set which <a href="http://smarturl.it/Live2014" title="Coldplay - GS live 2014" target="_blank">you can pre-order in time for its official release date, on November 24th.</a></strong> <!--more-->



<h2> 1) Ghost Story - The official music video </h2>



Guy, Will, Jonny and Chris, all in the same room, playing the music that they love. Sometimes, simplicity results in the best music videos (<em>Speed of Sound</em>, anyone?) and judging by the clip we have seen, it's likely to be more of the same. The track itself combines elements of 'old school' Coldplay with the flavour of their current album, <em>Ghost Stories</em>. The preview clip Coldplay treated us to on Halloween can be seen below.






<h2> 2) Ghost Stories live, uninterrupted and in full HD </h2>



<em>Ghost Stories</em> the film in all its glory, from start to finish, in the way the album is meant to run! No skipping adverts or even missing out tracks such as Ink, <a href="http://www.coldplaying.com/coldplay-jimmyfalon-target-tvspecial/" title="Coldplay set to appear on the Jimmy Fallon show, ‘Target’ ad & more dates for upcoming TV special" target="_blank">which did not feature on the NBC TV special back in May</a>. For the best experience, order the Blu-ray, fire up your Blu-Ray player/Playstation/other, perhaps experience <em>Live 2012</em> and <em>Live 2014 </em>back to back as you sit back (or jump around!) and watch until your heart's content.

<h2> 3) Ink - Live at The Royal Albert Hall, London </h2>



Most Coldplayers who have pre-ordered Ghost Stories Live 2014 on iTunes or have purchased it separately would of heard the audio of <em>Ink</em> live at Casino De Paris and the magnificent sing-a-long to the catchy riff. We will all be looking forward to gazing (once more for some!) at the stunning visuals beaming from the roof <a href="http://www.coldplaying.com/coldplay-at-the-royal-albert-hall/" title="Coldplay at the Royal Albert Hall – Two extraordinary shows" target="_blank">at the Royal Albert Hall back in July</a> in form of a music video, to be released alongside the many official videos we have watched so far throughout the <em>Ghost Stories</em> era.

<h2> 4) Ghost Stories in live audio format </h2>



Given <em>Ghost Stories</em> its 1,000th play yet? or are you onto 10,000 plays? The live audio album should freshen things up a bit! <em>Another's Arms</em> is one song with a strong contrast between the live and studio versions. You could point to <em>Magic</em> and <em>O</em> too as other examples. The general nature of Coldplay's production on albums nowadays always gives the live tracks a varied edge. Remember <em>Mylo Xyloto</em> in Summer 2011, we practically had half a live album (those who download audio from the festival performances) before finally listening to the actual studio version in October that year! It's fascinating that we will hear Ghost Stories exclusively live from start to finish, with the regular live highlights such as <em>Clocks</em> and <em>Viva La Vida</em>, which appeared on <a href="http://www.coldplay.com/recordings/leftrightleftrightleft/" title="Leftrightleftrightleft - Coldplay" target="_blank">LeftRightLeftRightLeft</a> <a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/Coldplay-Live-2012-CD-DVD-Case/dp/B009ABJFHO" title="Live 2012 CD - Coldplay" target="_blank">along with Live 2012 more recently</a> not in the mix. Both Coldplay hits did however feature on the <a href="http://www.coldplaying.com/coldplay-release-ghost-stories-with-film/" title="Coldplay release Ghost Stories along with a breathtaking film" target="_blank">original TV special of the Ghost Stories film back in May</a>. To make things even better, it's not a direct rip from the DVD/Blu-Ray. The audio CD will include the best performances from London, Paris, Sydney and more!

<h2> 5) Magic (Extended Director's Cut) </h2>



This one slipped under the radar! Back in April, when the official video was released for Coldplay's first single from <em>Ghost Stories</em>, we reported (among the <a href="http://www.coldplaying.com/watch-now-behind-scenes-magic-music-video/" title="Watch now – Behind the scenes of the “Magic” music video" target="_blank">behind the scenes clips</a> and <a href="http://www.coldplaying.com/extended-video-magic-way-zhang-ziyi-talks-working-chris-martin-article/" title="Extended video for “Magic” on the way & Zhang Ziyi talks about working with Chris Martin (Article)" target="_blank">interviews</a>) that the extended colour version will be on the way. Among all the album release craziness, we totally forgot about this! Phil and co perhaps decided to release it as part of Ghost Stories Live 2014 and spread out the new content. After all, in November, we're not exactly refreshing every Coldplay news source every minute are we? (Unless your impatiently <a href="http://www.coldplaying.com/category/cp-miracles/" title="Coldplay - Miracles" target="_blank">waiting for Miracles to come</a>!)
