November saw Coldplay's music video in support of their new single 'Lovers in Japan' officially released worldwide via the Parlophone YouTube channel at midnight on Wednesday 4th November (GMT, EST-5). Because of its 'leak' on iTunes, many of you had already seen the video enough times to make a judgement on it, so you let us know what you thought of the video on our new poll and also the discussion thread (already 40 pages long by the time of the midnight release!). At around 3m45s in the video the letters EB., BA IN, and LL FO appeared... a secret message perhaps?
An alternative video of Lovers In Japan affiliated to Capitol records also emerged online. The video was shot by Matt Whitecross at the United Center in Chicago during the same show in which the official video of Lost! and Lost+ was from. The images of the video seem to be part of an alternative video of the fourth single taken from the album Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends, but it has since been rumoured that it could also be a footage of the eagerly-awaited Live DVD that Coldplay have been preparing during the shows in Chicago held on 22nd and 23rd of July.
Coldplayers Mel and Lori (Melanieau & KissesBirds] were met with a double Coldplay whammy at the November Detroit show as they were not only upgraded to front row courtesy of Chris Martin but were introduced to and photographed backstage with the Coldplay roadies. You can read their entire story from turning up at the venue, to their appearace backstage, at the messageboard discussion here onwards or via the shortened version at WikiColdplay.
