The multimedia section on our forums, the well known goldmine for Coldplay fans, was given a boost by the multimedia month we hosted during August, which is part of our monthly contributor contest, where prizes can be won such as Member of the month, deluxe editions of 'Ghost Stories' and sets of 'Ghost Stories' buttons. Everyone wins infact as we have seen a barrage of new Coldplay uploads since the start of August and now Coldplaying.com presents to you, the top 10 Coldplay multimedia posted on the Coldplaying community for the month of August...
10 : 'Swallowed In The Sea' (Piano acoustic)
This mellow piano version of the popular ballad from 'X&Y' has proven to be very popular among Coldplayers, alongside the regular acoustic version
9 : Always In My Head (Visual video)
Remember the first time you heard the opening studio track of 'Ghost Stories' in full? Whether it was spinning the album for the first time or listening to the song premiere on the Zane Lowe show back on 12th May, it was a special moment for many fans. A great visual can do wonders for a song and bring back a feeling similar to the first play of the tune. A big thanks to Dexynboy for these beautiful visuals.
8 : Coldplero's Hurts Like Heaven EP
A mix of seven 'Hurts Like Heaven' versions including two fan made mixes with extra Xylobyrtes, an acoustic version which was original performed on BBC Radio 1 and various live versions of the energetic pace setter on 'Mylo Xyloto'

The ultimate anthem of them all. this fan compiled 'Viva La Vida' EP contains stunning live versions of the benchmark tune from Coldplay's fourth album, along with fan mixes and a orchestral wonder!
6 : Chris Martin interview on VH1's Top 20 show
A fantastic Chris Martin interview from August, looking back at his rapping skills from 2003 and nominating Paradise as his favourite Coldplay video. He told us what his Dad told him, with inspiration from the Paradise video, “You’ll have to ride a unicycle when the music goes wrong”!

4 : 'Politik' (Give Me Love Over This)
'Politik' is an awesome song, i'm sure we can all agree on that and many consider it to be their favourite Coldplay track! An emotional sounding Chris belting out "Give Me Love Over This" is one of the highlights of the whole legendary album, 'A Rush Of Blood To The Head' and i'm sure you have re-winded back to this part of the song many times!! You no longer have to and can savoir the moment truly, thanks to some neat editing work from Coldplayer_101
3 : Coldplay live at the 50th Max Sessions
Coldplay originally performed a wonderful show for the hundreds of delighted Coldplay fans in Sydney, Australia, on June 18th. The footage wasn't released until mid-August but the wait was justified with a string of sensational performances by the band within the very intimate venue for the band's returns to the Max Sessions after playing at the very first Max Sessions in 2001!
2 : Coldplay Unplugged
Two very outstanding Coldplay compilations. Featuring acoustics from the whole band and Chris with live appearances from the band's humble beginnings to Chris in New York City! Highlights include Warning Sign, Lovers In Japan, In My Place, Trouble and Speed Of Sound. A very calming acoustic album that deserves to be in your music library.
Coldplay Unplugged and Coldplay Unplugged : Revised.
1 : Chris Martin on Sirius XM Radio - Live performance and interview
The top spot on the list goes to the special Chris Martin live appearance on Sirius XM satellite radio. The interview revealed a bunch useful information regarding their reasons for a smaller tour during the 'Ghost Stories' era and their next album. It fueled much speculation about Coldplay's future output and touring. Here's a few excerpts from the original article.
