Coldplay's world tour ended in Latin America last night, as they played at the Estadio Universitario, Monterrey, Mexico in the final Viva la Vida concert. Chris Martin dedicated The Hardest Part to his father, and Chris at one point early on in the set had to ask people to move back from the front to prevent people getting hurt in the audience. There was no LeftRightLeftRightLeft CD for the Monterrey crowd but the crowd did sing Cielito Lindo and the band as sat down at the edge of the stage again to listen to them.
The setlist was the same as the previous nights. This means that Coldplay once again played Shiver during the acoustic set. The new song written specifically for the Latin tour, called Don Quixote/Spanish Rain was played once again. Some excellent photos have already been posted to Flickr here and also here. Thanks to everyone who has contributed on the forums, wiki and twitters, we'll have more on this show over the next few hours/days!

Wow. We JUST made it back to our hotel.. Time sure flies. We were present at the FIRST ever VIVA concert back at June 16, 2008 in London / Brixton Academy..and now the LAST one at Estadio Universitario, Monterrey, Mexico..also went to couple other shows inbetween these two at various times in 2008, 2009, 2010..but these 2 dates were extra special. It's amazing to see how they improved themselves.. during this time frame. After I arrived back to hotel..I'm asked myself - if this all could have been any better? The answer is no, it was just PERFECT. The show couldn't have been better as we say our goodbyes to the VIVA tour. It was pure MAGIC. [thanks lo&loud]
the concert was awesome! i went to the hotel after the concert and got there as the same time but security was soooo tight and rude so i had to leave, someone said they were having a private party im still trying to go there tomorrow. I will upload videos and pictures it was AWESOME!!! im so glad they closed their tour here, i feel so proud and it was just what i expected. wow i have no words really [thanks joliefan4life]
im just back from the show, cant make a proper review right now. the concert was great, the setlist as you may already know was the same, the charro/mariachi thing was not coldplay, the roadies were wearing the outfits but you already know that too. some things i can remember right now:
- Chris dedicating The Hardest Part "para mi papá" (for my dad)
- at the beginning of one of the songs (cant remember which one) he asked the crowd to take one step back cus some guys in the front were getting hurt, it was pretty intense
-We sang Cielito Lindo and the band sat down at the edge of the stage again to listen to us
-No leftright given, quite dissappointed to be honest. At least i didnt get any and i saw nobody with one. Actually Chirs said that if we wanted the album we should visit ocesa.com.mx, though h had a hard time trying to pronounce/remember the name of the organizer. [thanks hugo]

AND WE DON'T GET LRLRL!! i need to find out if it was because i leave so late or by other thing. [thanks ana_berryman]
The show was good. The crowd didn't even begin to come close to the crowd in Guadalajara. There was some pushing at the begining of the show but it chilled out after the first couple of songs. Had a huge problem with the hotel/ cab. When I checked in I asked about arranging a car service to bring and pick me up after the show. Hotel said they would arrange a cab for this. I told them he needed to drop us off where he wanted to pick us up so we would know where to find him. They said no problem. After the show he didn't return. Called the hotel, they tell me he had no intention of returning because there was traffic! No really, duh! And he wouldn't send a car to get us! We didn't even know where the cabs were at this venue. We had to wonder around and then none would stop for us. Finally a nice couple who were not from Monterrey offered to share a cab with us. The guy got one to stop and I paid their fair otherwise I might still be out on the street right now. The guy said " that's how it is in Mexico" no that's just how it is in Monterrey because the other two cities were perfectly fine. Jackie told me something in Guaralajara: it was either "I have seen you for two years on this tour!" Or " it will be two years before I see you again on tour!" the crowd was too loud to tell which. [thanks Texasluvsjonny]
