    so the show ended about 30 minutes ago and I am on my way home. The setlist was normal but on the paper setlist I got it said they were supposed to play life in technicolor 2 . So I guess expect that soon.! It was an amazing concert. The highlight for me being chris singing human by the killers during viva la vida. Night coldplayers. [thanks kit42]


    no seat upgrades.....the three of us got too nervous to ask straight-forward (and plus most of the roadies were intimidating ). BUT.....after the concert, one of the 'nicer' roadies gave me a SETLIST. However....it's FROM THE ATLANTA GIG?! Best thing about it is that they're 100000000X better than back in July during the start of the tour! to sum it up quickly:

    ~Cemeteries of London

    ~Talk at the B-stage (totally new for me, and i <3 it!)

    ~CHRIS ON THE PIANO FOR "THE HARDEST PART" ON THE B-STAGE (with Will singing backup!!)....I neeeeeeeed to find that footage ASAP!!

    ~Postcards From Far Away (b-stage)....i think?!

    ~I was THREE SEATS AWAY from the guys during the acoustic set!! [thanks talkingonsquareone89]


    I wore my Viva La Vida tour shirt (had seen them on opening night at the Forum) and I got a poster and program at the concert. So my seats were in Sec 410, and they weren't too horrible. So we watch Sleepercar perform and then decided to go get a snack during the little break. We take all of our stuff with us and go to get some popcorn and we're waiting in line and I'm holding the stuff we bought and this girl comes up to us and she's wearing a VIVA jacket and she says do you guys want to come out of the line over here with me...and my mom was like uhhhh why? And so the girl said trust me it'll be worth it. And at this point I'm already a little freaking out because I think I know what this is...so I'm like MOM WE'RE GOING lol. So we move out of the line and go stand out of the way and she's introduces herself, she's Marta who's awesome...but she's talking to us just about being big fans, etc and says that she assumes we don't have the best seats. And she says so I'm going to ask you three questions and if you answer them we're going to upgrade your seats...so I'm shaking now. So she asks me to name 6 songs by Coldplay which obviously wasn't hard (don't remember exactly what I said but I mentioned Rainy Day and Prospekt's March and LIT ii). So Marta says whoa you even mentioned new songs I'll have to tell Chris...lol. Then she asks me what Chris's two kid's names are and I say Moses and Apple; and she mentions something about two other ladies she asked having no idea. And then she asks me to say the first bit of Viva La Vida and so I start with "I used to rule the world..." and OF COURSE my mind blanks and then she says that she doesn't even remember it very much and she's been on the whole tour lol. So then she asks me to say the chorus and I do. Then she said alright do you guys have your tickets? And we said yes and then gave them to her. And she said close your eyes and I'm going to put something in your hand. So me and my mom close our eyes and then she puts a ticket in each of our hands for THE FIFTH ROW!!! [thanks lifeisbeautiful]
