Hi guys!!! Last Monday an Italian newspaper published a brief interview with violinist Davide Rossi. I'm Italian and live in Italy, so I promptly went to the newsagent's and bought the paper. In

I’m from Chile and I’m watching the match! The alienradio graphics have appeared several times now. 
This is the most important match of the year here, so there are millions watching the tv right now. Great campaign 😄

What is it with everybody commenting "really? This is disappointing coming from Coldplay.

Hate to burst your bubble but there are no aliens in outer space, no aliens in any universe.

The Earth is special and unique, whether you believe it or not. Yeah, our Earth, we got the good stuff right when it all started and..."

 

Just bots? Or have i missed something?

Some random person on twitter seriously posted that, and so now it's being copied as a meme (because let's face it that's hilarious :laugh3: )

My long post before new music drops. TLDR: I'm super excited and optimistc that this is going to be the perfect Coldplay era for me, but ya never know. For those of you new to the speculation train -- you may not like the new music, but that's okay! We're gonna get what we're gonna get and we should try to be open to whatever happens.

Spoiler

Disclaimer, this is just my opinion as a fan of 15+ years. Viva & MX Era's were undoubtedly Coldplay's most creative, diverse, and fun eras. They worked with the most interesting producers and Chris was in top songwriting form, and the demos from Viva like Bucket for a Crown, The Man Who Swears, Fall of Man, Bloodless Revolution sounded (for my taste) like some of the coolest songs he ever wrote and i've been praying ever since they get some sort of release one day. 

I also love the band's fascination with space and how much of an opportunity that opens up to bring in electronic, synth and big guitar sounds. Some of the band's most compelling musical moments come from "spacey" songs like the guitar solos in Atlas, AICAIY, Moving to Mars and the absolutely massive symphonic sounds on ALIENS and Twisted Logic and the sparse atmosphere of songs like Midnight, Trouble in Town or the Mylo Interlude tracks. Everyday LIfe brought us the sounds we may have expected from the Wedding Album, plus Arabesque, arguably a top 5 all time Coldplay song. So I do wonder if MOTS/Alien Radio are going to deliver more amazing ideas from past eras that I've been dying to hear. Big guitars, soaring strings, bombastic synthesizers. It's the kind of music to rock a stadium and imo that's Coldplay at it's very best. EL delivered those quiet, intimate moments from Oldplay, now I want the bigger moments of Oldplay. 

Of course, I have to remain cautious because ever since Viva, I think the band has delivered slightly more mixed bags. They may give us a blistering rock song like Major Minus or a lovely soft sleeper like Always in My Head, but they also have collaborated with fratboy villians (Chainsmokers) and wrote some songs that feel less essential to their overall catalogue for most fans (Anothers Arms, Fun, UFO, Kaleidiscope, Cry Cry Cry). The singles have remained steadily solid, but AOAL and HFTW are easily bottom-tier Coldplay. So this new project might be teasing us a weird, wonky, rock space opera. But it could also easily be a mishmash of global pop sounds with cheesy choruses. As someone who's been let down before, I'll say this: You're going to like some songs, you're going to dislike some songs. Over time, that opinon may change. It's really easy to get hype and believe this new album is gonna be a 10/10 rock opera or a perfect sequel to MX. In reality, it will most likely be a mix of sounds and new stuff you aren't expecting! Just be ready to enjoy what you get and keep an open mind! I take comfort that even if I don't love some the songs I listed above, others do! That's the beauty of it.

Twitter user @upwdbfly has a theory about the transmission in Portuguese and I think that's the one!

Can't access the original tweet but they found that the transmission numbers sequence corresponds more or less to the Yellow ink color chart:Image

So that transmission is definitely a reference to Yellow, I think.

As per other transmissions that may be about Coldplay members/partners, this suggests that the references may not only be new songs but old ones as well!

I went away for the weekend, consiously turning off my phone. Now I’m bouncing up and down of excitement about these new clues! 

Coldplay definately knows how to tease a new release! 
 

I’m very curious what this era will bring. I’m expecting something completely new and different, because the ‘first chapter’ has closed. So I don’t think it will be a MX sequel, as some others here said. They’ll be full of surprises, right? Can’t wait! 
 

Still wondering though: the posters were deciphered.. are they in an excisting language or..? 🤔

I believe it's a fake language created for this purpose only. It looks a lot like Klingon so they probably made it up based on that and maybe other languages (real or not) . And the messages in that fake language translate to actual English.

Here's my attempt at ARFM-16 -> Station 90 (but of course I could be completely wrong):

 

The german translation for "Rainhill Trials" is "das Rennen von Rainhill".

"das Rennen von Rainhill" translated to english = "The Race of Rainhill".

 

So "The Rocket" was built for "The Race (of Rainhill).😅

I'm pretty sure that the image in signal.svg represents a combination of two words (and not some coordinates). The reasons are the following:

  • we have two separators; why put the separators if you are really sure that they are coordinates?
  • it seems like a repeating message, composed by two words (3 and 7 letters). The words contain different letters
  • the dots and the squares are divided by blank spaces, so probably are different entities like letters and not numbers to be put in a sequence

Now wait a minute folks...... if station 56 is indeed narrated by Pilar Zeta (AHFOD/EL art director from Argentine)...

Could it be that the Swedish meatball recipe is a reference to Max Martin, the Swedish producer that Chris allegedly paid a visit to ????????

Wait then.. if station 56 is narrated by Pilar Zeta, which surely is.. and there's a reference about swedish recipe to that producer, then the Czech record (ARFM-6) could be narrated by Mila Furstova, creator of wings for Ghost Stories. I thing the voices sound kind of similar.
But still don't know the meaning behind..

This is probably not important, but Cheltenham, the place where she lives and works in, is mentioned in ARFM-23.

I agree with you, the way it moves over the page reminds me of a leadled light or the display of your car radio maybe. 🤔 

i thought I could make out a word but I might be completely off

The Swedish translation isn't complete yet, as a native Swedish speaker I'd be happy to help finish the translation...even if it is just a meatball recipe haha:D
