Coldplay Messenger has published Number 4 Volume 1 earlier today. Here are some of the best bits:
Yesterday evening Coldplay.com launched a contest for you folks to create a video for Lost? (the acoustic version of the upcoming single). As Prospekt explained in his brief, you can "use any medium you like: animation, Claymation, stop motion, video camera, super 8, comic strip, photography" to conjure your video. We'd just like them to be creative, original and imaginative. The maker of the best video - as chosen by the band - will win an all-expenses trip to London to see one of Coldplay's homecoming shows at the O2 in December. Click here for full details of how to enter and to hear Lost?
Since we were last in touch, it's been announced that Coldplay will release the Prospekt's March EP at the end of November. Click here to read a letter written by Chris explaining the EP, here to watch a video of the band debuting one of its songs in Antwerp (with Albert Hammond Jr), here to check out when the EP and a special edition of the album will be released where you are and here to admire the artwork. If all that leaves you feeling suitably inspired, then click here to pre-order your copy from the Coldplay US/Rest Of The World shop (it'll arrive in the UK/Europe store next week).
