In My Place
Viva La Vida
Chinese Sleep Chant (side stage)
GPASUYF (side stage/techno version)
Hardest Part (again half of the song and Chris w/piano only)
The Scientist (acoustic in crowd)
Death Will Never Conquer (acoustic in the crowd)
Politik (with piano interlude)
Lover in Japan
There was no surprise encore but there was the usual one consisting of Politik, lovers in Japan, and Death and all his Friends.
With that being said, the concert was fucking great! This was my first time seeing them live! Chris sang so well, he didn't miss a note. And holy shit, Will Champion is one amazing drummer!!! I can't believe someone said he doesn't belong in the top 50....
Chris did about half of The Hardest Part and then stopped! The crowd was okay throughout the show, could have been a bit better. They began clapping before some songs were even over, including Yellow!!! Chris had to wait until they stopped clapping to finish. Very annoying. Energy from the crowd was sporadic.
It was pretty great overall. A few minor nitpicks, such as the setlist not flowing perfectly, or wanting the lighting to be super intense on every song, but the band is coming into their own as far as live performances and seems to be enjoying it. The Muse-esque improv/additions to songs (such as the classical-sounding ditty after Politik) are huge in my book. I hope they continue to do these.
