The Top Ten

1
Fix You
Come on no. 2 is not enough what the heck man vote for this song and listen to it you will not regret it I promise you all
One of the best songs from Coldplay! I love this song! Full of meaning, and it makes me cry! They sang the song like they have something to say, something to prove.. And absolutely love the ending.. Especially at the music video... Where everybody sang the chorus... It really made me cry!
This is a wonderful song. It's perfect. Every single person can relate to this song. Really listen, listen to what they are trying to say. Viva la Vida is a great song, but for me this is the best of Coldplay.
[Newest]Oh my God! Absolutely amazing!

2Viva la Vida
When I listen to viva la vida I feel like I'm the king. All the sensations and emotions in this song make you directly enter the song as if you are the king
It is absolutely brilliant! I am completely in love with this song. It is so powerful and has so much meaning to it. Coldplay definitely is the best band out there! It can't get any better!
This is the best song I have ever heard! The suspense and the sound of the song just makes it. Coldplay did a very good job making this song. It really makes me feel like I used to rule the world! I absolutely love it!
[Newest]Makes me feel like king

3The Scientist
Above and beyond amazing this song reaches to you and makes want to go to sleep and tough the sky and also if you are a guy that really likes to listen to songs that make you calm this is by far the one for you.
The emotion in this song is raw and uncensored, it tells an amazing and beautiful story. It's original and calming ; yet there's something in the lyrics that stirs up emotions and memories.
Fix you is great too, but you can't beat The Scientist
[Newest]The song flows the best out of all of them. Lyrics are perfect, it touches all of us. Come voters, this is obviously the best!

4Yellow
. . . its so emotional, really heart-felt, you can really tell Martin cares more about this song more than any of the others, and most importantly, it kickstarted COLDPLAY - it set the platform for all the other coldplay songs. . .!
oh god, I just dont understand how I lived me life up to now without this song just on in the background <3 today me and my friends shared the love and walked around the school singing this and wow I was in heaven. let's be honest here, whoever true song was to was lucky as to have a song like that - it is the themetune to my life
by far the best song by coldplay... it needs to be at the top...
i bet anyone who listens to it once can leave it... he/she will have to listen it again and again...
[Newest]Beautiful Love it and that sums it up

5Paradise
This song rocks man! Stuck in my head since it released! Para-para paradise!
Another really amazing song from coldplay, musically (with the classical and alternative merge - amazing! ) and lyrically. It tells the tale of a little girl who's perception of the world is really quite different from reality. Every time I play this song it just has to be more than once... Or twice... Okay more like five times.
It opens beautifully with some violin, subtle bass, and awesome highs, and then it's like DaftPunk's website server exploded and that sick bass drop comes in like 'the, the, DUM' and then it's like god's record player... Um... Exploded. A heavenly song to say the least!
[Newest]This is better than Viva La Vida and Fix U. Sky Full of Stars is too low

6Clocks
I like how they sang the song. They had a nice and loving tune that almost make me cry. They are my best singers and I will never forget them.
a song which has a powerful start and a great ending as well... piano used in a rock song... simply amazing..!
Awesome tune and nice and relaxing ! good Lyrics too
[Newest]This is the song that got me in to wanting to learn how to play the piano I owe a lot to this magical piece of art sincerely one of the best songs I've ever heard

7Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall
Without a doubt one of the best song they made... Everything is so perfect in this song! Listen to it to understand
Amazing solo guitar, Spectacular Chris voice, drums awesome and Guy... Well, a song made from all the band for all their fans. Sounds great and really rhythmic
Great song best in my opinion one of my most played song on my ipod
Never heard a better song
Love it

[Newest]No bloody way. You just can't put this all the way up here and push MASTERPIECES below 10. I'm not saying it isn't a good song. Just that it isn't worthy of being above any of Viva La Vida's songs.

8Speed of Sound
Piano absolutely blows you away in the introduction. Oppose to the other songs made by Coldplay, this song excels at build-up and keeps climax until a dramatic end.
Great song.. With amazing lyrics... I'm loving it.. It should be number 1 according to me..
The song that makes any human fall in love with coldplay, Deserves the number 1 spot in this list.
[Newest]This is the best coldplay song I have ever heard in my life and it should be number 1 for sure

9Violet Hill
The lyrics in this song are so amazing and deep. "If you love me then won't you let me know" is so powerful.
This is coldplays best song because it so different when compared to their usual songs.
awesome, unique, addictible. this is the best listen and listen hundreds times
[Newest]Coldplay should make more songs like this one! So energetic and with dare-to-tell lyrics. Rock on Coldplay!

10In My Place
I don't think many real fans voted here. They just simply went with the popualair ones.
This song is just amazing.
This is one of those songs I go straight to when I feel like I'm stuck in life and have nowhere to go, as if I really were "in my place". The melody and the "oh's" in the chorus are enough to make anyone feel how much the band sympathizes
This song made me cry with joy the first time I listened to it. One of the highlights of "A Rush Of Blood To The Head"
[Newest]This deserves a place in the top five! This song literally saved my life when I was broken from my dad's death! I LOVED IT. along with Fix You.

The Contenders

11Charlie Brown
This is the one song to come from Mylo Xyloto that will reign as a true classic, nothing else on the album quite compares. It is one of their best efforts since ROBTTH.
This song is really LEGENDARY! Viva la coldplay! We'll be glowing in the dark!
The best of mylo xyloto. The best rhythms of the new album. A top ten of the list without doubt.
[Newest]This song is legendary

12Trouble
I don't want to cause 'trouble', but this song deserves to be higher than tenth position...
words can't explain. it deserves to be in the top 5 cmon people vote!
Simple piano playing equals a brilliant chorus or bridge? (great song in other words)
[Newest]Common people it's better than any song up there and you know it... the reason for me to listen to Coldplay is this song... Common man

13Talk
one of my favourite. the melody was so good. this song has its own style and atmosphere
nice tempo and build up with good melody! Should be up in the top 5 for sure. Somebody take note
WHAT THE HECK!? Why is this all the way down here!? This is their best song! VOTE TALK!
[Newest]This is the best song I have ever heard. In my entire life and it really has the sound of 2005 but still is a great song even now this is the award Grammy winner

14Strawberry Swing
I don't know what wrong with the voters here. With due respect to all the songs, this song is one of the most melodious song I've heard. The lyrics are damn awesome. Man, this songs lifts me to a whole different world. Its a pleasure to hear this song and you want to hear this song over and over again. The lyrics and the music are so beautiful that its human impossible to describe how good a song it is. #1 material in my opinion.

Should be in top 3 AT LEAST.
Wow this song should be way higher. Just sayin, it makes you happy when you are down
Ghosh, This one is addiction. Awesome!. Even the music video is mind blowing.
[Newest]Such an uplifting beautiful song. Can always make you in a good mood

15Swallowed In the Sea
This is by far THE best Coldplay song there is. No competition. Everything about it is incredibly beautiful. The instrumental work, the lyrics, Chris Martin's voice. It is ridiculous that a song like Viva La Vida could top this one. Nothing against Viva La Vida, but I think this song was their masterpiece. I just can't even describe how much I love this song. I used to fall asleep to it every night when I was 8 years old. This song is just a part of me.

krpm

I love this song X and Y is most probably their best album, but coldplay are evolving into something completely different and I prefer their earlier stuff this and twisted logic are amazing songs the same as all other coldplay songs.
I agree with Keyan2.
This song is probably the biggest reason I love Coldplay.
If you ask me, I probably wouldn't know how to explain what the song means, but I think the abstraction makes it that good.
[Newest]A really underrated coldplay song. It's just so honest and simple yet beautiful


16Life In Technicolor II
one of the best coldplay songs.. awesome music and lyrics.. meaningful song... so soothing to listen.. takes me to a different world...

Pavan

Yeah, This is very underrated song, which has great music and great lyrics. Its something out of ordinary.
The instruments are amazing especially when the drum enters intro - great song
[Newest]The rating if this song really shows that people rate only the songs that have managed to make it to mainstream media. Clearly, this song is grossly underrated and really, REALLY needs to be in the top ten. Pure musical genius combined with an outpouring of captivating lyrics. An ethereal experience to listen to it. Always.

17Warning Sign
Beautiful chorus and just simple lyrics. Makes this song all that more easy to listen to and takes you somewhere without you realizing. Very underrated.
It speaks for itself. The truth is shared and I don't think there's a better intro chord than what is heard here. Definitely a listen for any state of mind.
Easily the most underrated Coldplay song, the star here is Nick Champion's consistantly haunting guitar that is present throughout the song.
[Newest]No exaggeration, my second favorite song of all time. Anywhere of any band.

18Shiver
This is undoubtedly the most underrated song of Coldplay
Its just amazing from its music to its lyrics
I simply love it and I am sure everybody will
OH MAN! THIS'S SHOULD BE THE FIRST!
The feeling of this song is so strong!
I love this song so much, you should hear me sing it! I am filled with so much emotion that tears easily start rolling down my eyes...
My favourite Coldplay song it is! Should be in the top 3 at least!
[Newest]The music n melody is the best.. this is the best Coldplay song to me..

19Don't Panic
.. We live in a beautiful world...
This song, so beautiful, simple, and haunting at the same time, always strikes me right in the soul like a jolt of electricity when I hear it. The almost-surreal sound drifts to you like a dream and then leaves you too quickly, leaving behind the complexly simple lyrics and melody in your memory.
First time I hear this song... Its sounds very familiar like I can sort relate to it. Awesome
[Newest]I don't know what's wrong with these voters. This is an amazing song, it just takes me away. Give it a listen, it's amazing.

20Amsterdam
Really, really underrated. Amsterdam, like most of Coldplay songs, is emotional, but this is a cut above their other stuff like 'Fix You'. Chris Martin's piano steals the show, and is the highlight of their strongest album 'A Rush Of Blood To The Head' which is saying something when you think this album contains classics like 'In My Place' and 'The Scientist. ' This song deals with loss remarkably and it really represents the band at it's best
It makes me really sad to see this song so low on the Coldplay list. Please, everyone just listen to this guy, it's so powerful. "Stood on the edge, tied to a noose. But you came along, and you cut me loose. "

Tempus

In my opinion the best song coldplay ever made.. It builds up to this amazing finale that moves you very much.. Love it..
[Newest]How is this not No. 1? This song is brilliant. It at least deserves a top 5.

21Politik
Undoubtedly deserves to be in top ten, if not in top five... when you listen to the song more than once you will definitely be captivated by it.. Chris and the orchestration is just superb!
Probably one of the most intense songs from coldplay. The change of mood is just amazing, and the ending is epic, specially when played live Chris goes crazy.
Chris Martin has said that Politik is in the top 4 coldplay songs. Atleast this coldplay song has good lyrics! Very different song from any song in the world!
[Newest]One of the greatest songs I ever liked from Coldplay. This song deserves to be in the top 10. It's so epic, you could repeat it a bunch of times! Just so cool.

22Lost!
The best song of Coldplay, and the best emotional.
"You might be a big fish in a little pond,
Doesn't mean you've won
'Cause along may come, a bigger one, and you'll be lost"
Frankly speaking I became LOST! While listening to it as it's the best song of the coldplayers
The above are good but this is the best song of Coldplay, should certainly be higher. Best Lyrics, most emotional, fast start and consistent.
[Newest]Better than Viva La Vida, better than Yellow, better than Fix You better than ALL OF THEM! I once cried hearing Lost!

23Hurts Like Heaven
What begins with a slow and calm introduction, continues in a fast and toe-tapping beat. This, I must say, is a masterpiece.
I don't know why but this is my favorite ever song made by Coldplay. It has something that attracts you to listen, to listen and to KEEP listening to eat. I seriously LOVE IT. Cheers to one of the best bands in the World!
This song is so good, I can't stop listening to it. There is something great about the beat and the rhythm and the vocals that makes it so good. Awesome song, makes me happy
[Newest]This definitely should be ranked higher than no. 25. It's beautiful, and very underrated. Also love the music video!

24Death and All His Friends
A true masterpiece.
"No I don't wanna battle from beginning to end,
I don't want cycle or unrecycle revenge,
No I don't wanna follow death and all of his friends"

Genius!
A truly epic song, starts as a beautiful piano driven whisper and builds to a huge, stadium size finale. It represents everything that is Coldplay. A true masterpiece and a perfect way to end their best album!
This is absolutely amazing.. It lifts me up every time. Not true coldplay fans if you don't like it!
[Newest]Should be in the top 10. Enough said

25God Put a Smile Upon Your Face
What on earth is this song doing so low down!? This is a fantastic track which I always thoroughly enjoy listening to; this is irrefutably Coldplay at their very best in my opinion.
This is the closest coldplay have ever gone to pure rock music, and yet it blows away even the greatest rock bands.
The best. This should be in the first five Coldplay songs
GOD PUT A SMILE UPON YOUR FACE... There music has many meanings, I love this song more than the rest of them especially because of that rocking guitar
[Newest]His is the coolest song ever I tell you

26Lovers in Japan
This should absolutely be in the higher end of the top ten. 'Lovers' is such an uplifting song with a great beat! Leave it to Coldplay to create such an original song.
I think the melody is great and so original. It should be in top ten
For god sake! This one rocks! Why is it 21th!?!
I love the rhythm.
[Newest]THIS is their best song.

27A Rush of Blood to the Head
By far Coldplay's best song (the only one that comes close is Clocks). The live 2003 version is basically musical perfection. Fix You and Viva la Vida fans will probably think I'm crazy... but I'll just blame it on a rush of blood to the head.
A beautiful, unknown ballad about vengeance, war, and erasing bad memories. When I perform with my band, I always sing "Some will laugh, some just sit and cry/You just sit down there and you wonder why" to myself to get in the artistic flow. Coldplay may be known for emotionally powerful piano ballads, but one shouldn't underestimate their ability to write songs with political messages. But this isn't something to play at the Democratic Convention, or even Republican. This is something to listen to through headphones while it's dark and you're in bed. Just close you eyes and listen. The same can be said for a good amount of Coldplay's music. The metalheads may call them lame, but Coldplay is one of the 21st century's best rock acts. Chris Martin is the Paul Simon of his time, but his music prevails with so much more emotion, so much more visualization. Coldplay is something else, that is certain.
"And I'm gonna but a gun and start a war. If you can tell me something worth fighting for. "
[Newest]The pure emotion Martin conveys in this song is astounding by itself. The rhythm until the chorus is good, with almost a spooky vibe with the instrumentals in the chorus are astounding as well.

28Till Kingdom Come
One of the best Coldplay songs. It's REALLY underrated!

joxoko

I love this song, makes you go to sleep it makes you feel calm, they did good putting it in the end of the album )
LOVE THIS SONG, I don't know how this wasn't written on the back, I was listening to the cd and after the 12th track I was about to turn off the player and on came 'Til Kingdom Come, LOVED IT!
[Newest]I didn't hear this song until it was on " the amazing Spider-Man." But since I heard it then, I loved it. One of their most underrated songs

29The Hardest Part
Has to be in the top 10 at least its an epic song its kinda different from most of their song Should be in the top 5! Come On! The whole song is amazing, the piano, and the melody are so class. It's also a very original tune.
Should be in the top 5! Come On! The whole song is amazing, the piano, and the melody are so class. It's also a very original tune.
Great song. Love the piano in it!

[Newest]The Hardest Part is making this song go up to Top 10!

30Magic
Really good song. One of Coldplay's best. Its only so low in the list because it was just released recently. Vote it up guys! And also, the music video is awesome too. Go watch and listen to it if you haven't! Can't wait for Ghost Stories!
The second song from their new album Ghost Stories. Amazing. Go listen to it now!
Should be in the top 5 certainly, such a soothing tune to it, one word for this exquisite song "MAGICAL"
[Newest]This Magic song is very magical and it's so magical that this magical song is magically underrated. Call it Magic!

31Green Eyes
Sweet and lovely. And a easy song to sing and play on the guitar for your lover
ARE you KIDDINg ME? This is such a beautiful song! I can't begin express how heart melting this song is.. It would take forever.. I absolutely LOVE coldplay.. Ever since I first heard "Yellow" they have been one of my altime favorites.
Only true Coldplay fans know this song, however, it is so beautiful and sweet and just truly lovely... A wonderful secret. Definitely my favorite, although everything this band produces is absolutely amazing and unique.
[Newest]Green Eyes, you're the one I wanted to find

32Sparks
If not a top 10, it should definitely be top 15. It was a very sweet, mellow sound that shows Chris's voice nicely.
This Song is ridiculously beautiful a transcendent masterpiece. There is human something about it that is so heartwarming and connective to the listener and I believe it should easily be top 5 with kingdom come, we never change, yellow, the scientist and fix you. In no order.
Awesome.. It's so soothing to ears... Makes you feel like you are lying with your loved one on roof watching the stars...
[Newest]How is this song 30 should be 1-7

33See You Soon
Truly underrated. This one of Coldplay's first recroded songs... probably its first true masterpiece.
how could this not be the best one? perfect lyrics perfect melody perfect voice... I urge everyone to hear this song and trust me you will not regret it.
Just watch the YouTube video from live 2003. That's all I can say. Then you will see why this song should be in the top 10. The guitar chord progression accompanied with Chris Martin's voice makes this song a true masterpiece in itself! LISTEN!
[newest]
Genius, must be in the top 10

34Cemeteries of London
I love this song. It was one of the first Coldplay songs I've heard. The problem is, you can't really rate Coldplay's songs Best to Worst. Each song they have is different in its own way. If I could, I would put all of their songs at number 1.
Have you noticed the heartbeat-like beat at the beginning? I love it. Love the drum rhythm too, it makes the song sound like some adventure quest.
In addition, the lyrics are so deep, they carry me away to that spooky, mystic and fantastic world... Dudes listen to it A COUPLE OF TIMES then rate!
I used to listen to coldplay on and off but ever since I've heard cemeteries of london, I've got addicted to the band. Amazing music and very sexual
[Newest]In my top 3 Coldplay songs. I love it. Very sexual I agree and mysterious, reminds me of Vampires and the supernatural and nights in London back in the old times.

35What If
This coldplay song is underrated as it is treated like any other ballad. But this is a powerful ballad and the brilliance of this song is based purely on its lyrics having a deep meaning.
I am seriously in love with this song. And it's SO UNDERRATED, UNBELIEVABLE. It was this song that made me a coldplay fan, not viva la vida, or fix you. And the lyrics... Come on people, this song deserves more than place no. 41!
This song is underrated. That's all I can say... It has Very strong lyrics. piano part is just awesome and that guitar lick makes it even better... This song deserves better!
[Newest]Probably the best song by Coldplay. 42, you're kidding!

36A Message
So romantic lyrics about not giving up or stepping back on love. Quite an inspiring song... The solo guitar at the end of it is some of their very best. Check it out, you'll understand what I'm saying and will agree!
Should be in the top ten for sure! Something so amazing to express your love for someone, and letting them know that they complete you... "i am nothing on my own". It isn't saying you need to have someone to be complete, but that that special someone has forever changed you, made your life more whole and gave you a greater purpose. Life is nothing without love. Thank God for Coldplay! My life has forever been changed because of their music!
A Message should deserve better than 40, it has a great message to it as well. The guitar to it is the most beautiful thing I've ever heard. I would marry that song if I could, but I can't which is the sad part. It makes you feel like you're worth more than you ever thought you were.
[Newest]This in my opinion is cold plays' one of the greatest masters pieces if not the greatest. If I had my way, I would place it at number one. To those that have never had the opportunity, please find time to listen to this song and you'll definitely agree with my sentiments.

37A Sky Full of Stars
The greatest coldplay's song ever! Once you heard it, you will be hook! Can't stop listening it!
This is not the new Coldplay, this is just them playing their musics and has share their souls into it!
One of the best coldplay songs I have ever heard coldplay and avicii had done a great work
[Newest]This is a song that you can listen in anytime anywhere.

38White Shadows
One of the most underrated Coldplay songs by far. This song really captures finding desires and their true worth. Definitely deserves a spot at least in the Top 10.
Probably the most underrated song- the lyrics are meaningful and profound and the song itself is amazing. Definitely in the top five, if not higher than that.
This is a really good song. It's very difficult to vote for just one song, and I almost would have voted for Fix You to kick Viva la vida out of 1, but if we could rank them I think White Shadows ends up a lot higher.
[Newest]This is easily my favorite song by them. It has so much depth, meaning, and it just sounds good!

39Atlas
Amazing song!, like the first songs of Coldplay... Simply AMAZING.
This is one of those songs that could have been huge had it not been written for a movie, much like Paul McCartney's "Live and Let Die". It is a very simple yet infectious melody. It fits the mold of a pop song to a T. Great rhythm, slow but upbeat and it has the anthemic chorus of "Carry your world". Easy to listen to yet very exhilarating. Very well crafted even in its simplicity.
An amazing mix of rush of blood to the head and Mylo Xyloto. It gets better every listen.
[Newest]"carry your world and all your hurt" what an amazing lyrics and musical combo! How its been so down the list!

40Life In Technicolor
This is THE BEST COLDPLAY SONG TILL DATE after Yellow and Every Teardrop is a Waterfall. It shouldn't be lagging this far behind!
Why is this 32? One of the most legendary songs

41Square One
at 48? are you serious?
This songs definitely deserves to be in top 15

Theme is just so much amazing and makes you sing along with it
Amazing song, but all Coldplay songs are masterpieces, so I can not say what the best Coldplay song is. But this song should be higher rated!
Love it, It should be way higher though! It gives you a nice feel and puts you in the perfect mood.

42Everything's Not Lost
I love this song. Easily their best from Parachutes, including the heavily overplayed Yellow, though that's a good song too. The inspirational ender to their first album, this is one of the few songs by Coldplay that actually makes sense. Listen to the lyrics to Fix You, Speed of Sound or Lost!, and you will be wondering exactly what on earth the point was to the song. This is by far their most inspirational and meaningful song, and should definitely be higher!
Amazing song. Should be much higher on this list. So predictable how all their big hits are at the top. Those songs are good, but this band has so much more to offer.
When I'm counting up my demons
Saw there was one for every day
With the good ones on my shoulder
I drove the other ones away

If you ever feel neglected
If you think all is lost
I'll be counting up my demons yeah
Hoping everything's not lost

Such an inspiring song of Coldplay! Come on it deserves more!
[Newest]This song is so touching and it makes you feel happy inside... Especially the live version. Top five song!

43X & Y
Just so beautiful and... Majestic. I never get tired of this song! My favorite part is the "You and me are floating on a tidal wave together" "You and me are drifting into outer space"
It really makes me feel like I am going to outer space! :) This song deserves a much higher spot.
Just listen to the song people, it is an amazing song. It has like the same kind of rythym as clocks, it's a great song. Ss
The music makes you feel sublime... I believe it deserves a better spot..
[Newest]This is an amazing song it has great lyrics

John


44Glass of Water
This is one of those songs that if only coldplay decided to put this on viva la vida it would be top ten. The only thing holding it back is te fact that few people have actually heard it. I consider myself a pretty hardcore coldplay fan and hadn't heard this song until a couple months ago. I Feel as if some people had actually heard some of these songs like sparks and spies and Amsterdam they would also be A LOT higher.
Too bad this great song is only on Prospekts March... It is one of my favorite songs in general, and at the moment my all time favorite Coldplay song. It makes me feel so great when I hear the refrain, it transports so many feelings and thoughts in my opinion. Great song you should definitely listen to!
Great song with great piano part. Really meaningful and touches your heart.
[newest]
This song is simply beautiful. The chorus is so powerful, and the lyrics gorgeous. Took me a while to find this song though. Definitely deserves a higher vote!

45Don't Let It Break Your Heart
It's no surprise that the songs from Mylo Xyloto begin at the bottom of the list, but seriously, I found this song at 60. I believe that, given time, this song will definitely become a top ten.
It is so emotive and heartwarming, and the sound is overwhelmingly beautiful.
Easily one of my favourite songs from Coldplay.

IF YOU HAVEN'T LISTENED TO THIS SONG ALREADY, YOU SHOULD. Trust Me.
Dang. This is the best song from MX. It sounds so heavenly and fills you up with such amazing feelings of happiness and hope that you just EXPLODE with pure bliss! This song radiates pure awesomeness.
THE BEST SONG EVER MADE IN THE WHOLE WORLD. IT'S BEEN PLAYED OVER A 4029 TIMES ON MY IPOD, ! LOVE COLDPLAY SO MUCH!
[Newest]This should be number one best song ever!

46Christmas Lights
"Those Christmas lights, Light up the street. Maybe they'll bring her back to me. Then all my troubles will be gone
Oh Christmas lights keep shining on. " Makes me cry every time. This song epitomized why music exists, to invoke hope and fear and sorrow and joy. This song belongs in the list of greatest songs of all time simply because of its greater theme and how it doesn't seem to care whether you like it or not. It means everything to everyone.
I think that this song is gorgeous and makes me really get into the christmas spirit! It makes me cry every time because I think about christmas every single day
Good to see that Coldplay are making good songs even now. Listen to Christmas Lights, you will not regret it. Absolutely mesmerizing tune
[Newest]This song is beautiful. There are few words that describe it better than that. The lyrics are beautiful and will make you cry almost every time you hear them, guaranteed. And the tune is lovely as well. Shame this song isn't higher up on the list. Than again, it is not one of their most well known songs. But it should be. Just listen to it and you'll see why.

47Low
I'm surprised to find this song so low. The ending is really haunting and the riff is amazing. Songs like this and Major Minus deserve to be way higher.
I'm actually shocked to find this song so low; no pun intended, but its one of their best ever and most memorable.
This song should be up their with clocks and the scientist, I think everyone needs to take another listen and I urge you to reconsider and vote.
This song is one of the most heart-striking song that from Coldplay. The melody of this song is co great that perfectly match with its lyrics, expressing great tons of message from the Coldplay perspective. This song really deserve much higher ranking!

48O (Fly On)
Such a poetic song. It's so beautiful it makes me want to cry. Just heard it today and I felt like I was dissolving with the air. Creates sort of a soothing trance. Love it. I heard that this song is inspired by the complications that Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow has been through a few days ago. Sad new. Although I find it amazing how this man just uses his feels and thoughts in different position in life to write a song. The elements that occurred really reflect in this song. He is so talented. This song means something different to me although. I feel kind of nostalgic today I don't really know why. Maybe that is why I feel like this. The "flock of birds" are just memories to me which keeps "hovering above" in mind pretty suddenly though and even if not " just before dawn". And if we kind of connect my thought with the theme and title of the album, it could create another beautiful sensation. What I want to mean is that since this album is names "Ghost Stories", in the song, ghosts of past (as in memories) come creeping to you in flock of birds. And you look up to the sky and think about those good/bad times. But soon enough we all have to be broken from those flashbacks and be back to reality. We have to move on. As in "fly on". I love coldplay. I'm just 14. But their music really gets me. They make me dream and the symbolic/deep meanings are so, I don't know, intimidating. Their songs are so different and beautiful that you can't help but get curious and think of what really is inside it or what you want to feel of it. There is so much content in their songs, in case of both the tune and the meaning of the lyrics. In fact, when I understand such deepness of their songs, I myself feel like a kid genius. I will love Coldplay 'till the end.
I previously thought of Everything's Not Lost as my favorite Coldplay song... But this is so outright heartbreaking, amazing, and beautiful that it takes the top spot for me now (probably permanently). Honestly I don't think Coldplay can get any better than this, so what that it is not a radio-friendly single! Absolutely incredible, the first time I listened I cried through most of it and I am not one who cries much. "Fly on..."
I love this song, definitely deserves to be in the top 25, but I found part 2 a little strange...

49Yes
Not surprised this is down at 43 cause I don't think many true fans voted, otherwise fantastic songs like Amsterdam, Warning Sign, Sparks, Hurts Like Heaven, Lovers in Japan and Life in Technicolor would be higher. I went for Yes because of it's fantastic off kilter rhythm and it is distinctly un-coldplay sounding, and it perfectly sums up the World Music style of Viva La Vida.
When it started we had high hopes now my backs on the line, my backs on the ropes. When it started we were alright but night makes a fool of us in the daylight. The violin and the guitar in this song are the highlights, as well as Chris's vocal range. This song is by far one of their top 10 songs, up there with Cemeteries and Don't Panic, but I felt bad and voted for this. NEEDS TO BE HIGHER!
CSC is honestly my least favorite Coldplay song, but I agree. If only hardcore fans voted, Paradise would not even be in the top 50. It's not even that the Paradise is bad. It's that all of the underrated songs (like Yes) are so much better. I hate seeing the same top 10 on every website. The Scientist would be my #1, but you gotta have Don't Let It Break Your Heart, Sparks, Now My Feet Won't Touch The Ground, (hell, I'd throw A Ghost up there too) I wish there was a hardcore fan section.

50High Speed
Call me a pessimist, but the fact that a ton of Mylo Xyoto songs are above this, Spies and other amazing early Coldplay songs annoys me. I wish Coldplay stuck with their roots with their later albums. They've written so many beautiful songs that most people who are 'Coldplay fans' probably haven't heard of. Musically, 'High Speed' is awesome and possesses that spacey guitar feel that is the signature of early Parachutes-era Coldplay. Excellent song. I would recommend anyone to really closely listen to Parachutes start to finish. Trust me, it's worth it.
How this song isn't in the top 10 beats me.. So mellow and yet so powerful. The bass line and the drums alone are epic
I like the intro more but the rest are just great. This song must move up in High Speed! Like, maybe Top 40 perhaps?

51Brothers and Sisters
A very meaningful song! Very relevant in today's world! Everyone who fights with others will, after hearing this song, know the importance of making peace and not wasting precious time fighting. Spectacular!
Tough is not very known, I have to say this song is AMAZING!
Great intro, nice guitar and lyrics

52Rainy Day
Lovely song and there is some sadness in the song 's lyrics... Too good.. Eepecially when he says oh rainy day..

53Major Minus
I don't get why there aren't any opinions on this song? One of the best of Mylo Xyloto!
This song is a marvel.. Very underrated though..
Honestly the coolest sounds in a song Coldplay has ever created. Wicked awesome instrumentals as well!

54Us Against the World
Simply the best song on Mylo Xyloto. It's a perfect acoustic song with a fantastic story to tell. The lyrics are amazing. I love how more instruments are introduced towards the end of the song. It becomes louder and louder until it gently flows it out and ends with a beautiful acoustic sound. This song definitely deserves more attention. This song is an amazingly beautiful masterpiece.
Up against the world is such a good song. Although it does not fit in with Coldplay's other songs very well, its acoustic beauty fosters an aura of relaxation and its lyrics are soothing.
Beautiful. Stunning. Relaxing. Coldplay hasnt failed to amaze me.

Great for listening to anytime.
[Newest]There are many songs in the list with ranks lower than what they deserve but this is the MOST underrated of all of them! Just listen to the song! You'll understand what I mean!

55We Never Change
Chris' voice is so raw and emotional in this song, WHY is it way down here? It is honestly hard to do this kind of thing for Coldplay because they ARE so amazing, but this is at least top 20! You can hear so vividly his range and falsetto and the guitar is literally a dream; this is an outrage.
This song is amazing... It should be much higher than this. The song is so touching and really strikes a great chord in my heart.
Great guitar, especially before that touching chorus. A great yet highly underrated song. Super!

56Up With the Birds
The best album closer Coldplay have ever done. I love it, from the serene first half ("The birds they sang, break of day") to an explosion of passion and uplifting energy ("Might have to go where they don't know my name") and a final reassuring conclusion ("Good things are coming our way! "). It's a shame they have never played it live, as well as the fact that it is currently #52 on this list. My absolute favorite Coldplay song, more so even than their hits!
Its so uplifting! Love the song. Coldplay is my favorite band ever. NOTHING can beat coldplay.
This song tells my story. From being at the mercy of the streets to having the world on my feet. "A simple plot, then I knew one day, good things are coming my way". Lyrics of hope. Have listened to it over 10000 times and I am not exaggerating.

57Moses
A true testament to the genre. Listen before you vote
Amazing song top 20 most definitely

58Gravity
Hmm very unknown, eh? Too bad, it's so emotional and the lyrics are beautiful
Undoubtedly coldplay's best work... Wonder they never sing it in their concerts..
Best unheard Coldplay song...
[Newest]This is the best coldplay song ever and deserves to be number 1

59Another's Arms
I had my earphones on with music being played throughout the night while I slept. In the morning around 6 AM, I woke up with this song and the weather outside just complemented this song perfectly; breezy, cloudy, kind of dark, drizzles. The song felt to have come alive for me and to have woken up to the song made my day. I would want to wake up to this song everyday. The interlude were just ethereal, perfect. You don't want this song to stop, even more so for the interlude which feels rather short. I listened to that song at least five time today morning.
What A Ghastly and amazing song! This is definitely one of the Bests of Coldplay! Ghost Stories? You betcha!
I can't put my finger on why but this song really has a hold of me! It's got a really cool and unique atmosphere

6042
The opening line is so beautiful.
A very mysterious and compelling songs, I had to put this on the list.
Aside from the middle part of this song, this song is beautiful. The beginning and end are just amazing. If they were to redo this song and make the middle just as good as the beginning and end its a top 5 song.

61Proof
It may not be THE best of Coldplay's songs but certainly deserves a mention, and is a top 10 in my book.

62Spies
This is easily one of their most interesting songs, and it is so beautifully done as well. You're an idiot if you think that it's depressing too. I hate to pull the 'real fan' stuff, but in order to like their new stuff you really have to appreciate the old stuff like this, because it just doesn't compare. It just has a true emotion to it that, as I feel, you can't get in songs like paradise
This song is 58?! Okay okay, besides Yellow, this is easily the best song on their album Parachutes. Just awesome I mean, listen to those lyrics with that epic drop of percussion. It's amazing, and anybody who can't see that hasn't listened to Parachutes. Also and I forgot to add, it's really really addictive.
This is an amazing song. It is very mellow and unique. There is just something about this song that makes it one of Coldplay's best. It has a great guitar solo and the vocals are haunting and full of emotion. Just give it a listen and see for yourself.

This is the bat coldplay song ever and it deserves to be number1

63I Ran Away
Most amazing Coldplay b-side IMO. I wish more people knew about it! It's very unique and has an atmospheric feel to it.

shiverforcoldplay

My god! This song is in #62? Are you kidding me? This should be way above... at least in top 20

64Parachutes
This is SUCH a beautiful song! It is extremely short but you cannot help but ador the pure acousticness of this song and Chris's voice - this is a song everyone should know and give a listen to.

65One I Love
Guys please vote on this... I really WONDER how you missed this... AMAZING guitar sounds, especially at the end.. GREAT chorus. Any true coldplay fan would know this deserves top 20, at least.
Absolutely cool song to listen with those guitar riffs. Throughout the song... The opening wording. Sung by Martin is very good... Song with a lot of feelings... Deserves much higher.

66Twisted Logic
WOW how is this song so low down? Incredibly underrated song! Very emotional, very catchy and great music, really get into this one, I challenge anyone to lsten to this properly again
Why is this so low? This is THE definitve song on X&Y. It's like Up In Flames, 42, and Death and All His Friends in that it probably has the most passion and emotion on the entire album yet doesn't get the appreciation it deserves. It reminds me of the title X&Y because it touches on this idea of polar opposites in how we all behave as human beings ("You'll go backwards again... you'll go forwards again.") This may be Coldplay's deepest deep album track yet I think that in quality and overall message it stands among their very best singles.

67Things I Don't Understand
This is THAT SONG - the one that assures you there are others just like you - thank you, Coldplay
Makes you refreshed, and ready to run...
This is the best music of all time...it always makes me so sharp..!

68Careful Where You Stand
.. Hasn't ANYBODY EVER heard this song? This is their best song.. It's just so sweet and the music is just so soft flowing.. It just flows through you and sings you to sleep...

69Up In Flames
This is definitely one of Coldplay's least complex songs as far as arrangement goes but it does not have to be complex to be powerful. Up In Flames demonstrates most of what Coldplay has to offer. It gives a heartwarming and beautiful piano riff along with very well thought out and emotional vocal performance. Definitely a lovable song.
This is the best second song of this álbum just after paradise. Great song definitely! Mexico saya hello!
Love this song makes my heart go up in flames 😌"

70Ink
This fifth single of Coldplay's GS makes me feel good. Seriously, this song is just great. Listen to it.

71Moving to Mars
Just listen to this song a few times, then you will realize how beautiful it is.. Just because it is number 57 on this list doesn't mean it isn't a good song. This song deserves a higher spot like, in the teens. I LOVE this song.
Fantastic! This is the best song on the Every Teardrop is a Waterfall EP in my opinion. It's awesome and deserves to belong to people without iTunes accounts!
So simple but yet pure. Whenever I hear this, I want to just lay my head on the desk and close my eyes. It moves from simple beautiful piano notes to when the chorus begins at '8 to 9, 9 to 10'. Even words can't describe it! Whoever is not at least voting for this song hasn't heard enough of Coldplay.
It is an unofficial track on the album Mylo Xyloto. Whyy?! Ethereal.
Please please listen to this you will not regret spending 4:19 minutes listening to this song.
[Newest]Takes you somewhere else where you forget all your worries and enjoy just the music ringing in your ears.

72How You See the World

73Life Is for Living
Now I never meant,
To do you wrong,
That's what I came here to say.

But if I was wrong,
Then I'm sorry,
I don't let it stand in our way.
Love this song especially when played live and again its lyrics are meaning full and straight forward
Cause in the end
There 0nly us
Oh my friends
There only love
In the cave
Timing us
Cause in the end
There is only love

74For You
Its just an excelent song, it have great lyrics and makes me feel really good

75Only Superstition

76The World Turned Upside Down
This is not one of Coldplay's most popular songs, but it is one of my favorites easily. It has very well written words, and the chorus is spectacular! It's just one of those songs, that you will like right away.

77Prospekts March
The last 4 lines of this song are 4 of the most evocative, emotional, and beautiful lines of music ever written. The rest of the song is pretty good too!
I love this song.non linear in nature.very melodious.a single tune is not repeated once in the progression of the song.
The first line 'smoke is rising from the houses, people burying their dead' really sets a strong atmosphere

78Bigger Stronger
This song is beautiful from the intro to the ending. I love everything about it and it's really sad how underrated it is.
A great piece, one of my favorites.

79Animals
The whole song is wonderful, but it's the 3:20 mark... I could die, it's so beautiful...
Why this wasn't on AROBTTH or X and Y is beyond me, this song is amazing, it really is. Tough competition from Gravity, but is probably the best b-side coldplay have ever produced.

802000 Miles
A perfect song for couples who are not together during the holiday season. I was really surprise it wasn't in the list.

81Why Does It Always Rain On Me
That is NOT the Coldplay song... Why is everyone keep saying that this is their song?
Damn you! This is the best coldplay song! The lyric is awesome! It awlays feels so good when you are alone and confused and want to figure out how the the universe works..

'... Sunny days where have you gone, I get the strangest feeling you belong.. '
This is by Travis, not Coldplay, guys. It's a good song though.

82Postcards From Far Away
It's simple, it's sweet, and makes you want to listen to it over and over again
More people should listen to this. This is really something what you'd call perfect. It's blending the tunes of Coldplay with some zesty classical era music. Just 48 seconds, yet it gets to you. Belongs in the top 25.
One of the greatest pieces on the piano I have ever heard in my life

83Harmless

84Beautiful World
Makes me nostalgic every time I listen to this. This song is pure manic to me and makes my eyes water up. Especially the guitar which complements the singers voice with perfect harmony.
2 mins song, BUT THIS WAS THE SONG THAT GOT ME ADDICTED TO COLDPLAY
it should be in the top ten!

85Your Love Means Everything
World's best sad song ever...
An amazing song that breaks your hard yet fills you with joy.
Just pure beautiful. :')

86True Love
The title of the song really speaks for what the song is actually trying to tell us about.
I don't have much to say but you definitely wont regret listening to this song! It is the best track from ghost stories after ASFOS and magic I would say (no kidding). True love is such a sweet and heart-soothing song
Get to number 1. ASAP!

87Such a Rush
The vocals in this are amazing, and it's a shame this song isn't that well known. I was pretty surprised too see other songs from "The Blue Room" here, but Such A Rush was absent.

88Easy to Please
This song is beautiful, and so atmospheric. In just a few lines, it creates lots of feelings within. With the haunting atmosphere, mellow acoustics, amazing vocals, and a short, but beautiful piano tune; this song is surely one of Coldplay's best.
One fo my favourites of coldplay, just like the above comment, the song has an atmospheric feeling, it makes us feel so different and very much awesome!

89Barbie Girl
Really? Who the hell would put this here

90Always In My Head
One of the best tracks from their new album; it's short and sweet! I think it deserves to be at-least #20.
One of the best opener by them Coldplay!
The one thing that I notice about ghost stories compared to other Coldplay albums is how well the songs flow together. Ghost Stories contains only one of my top 10 favorite Coldplay songs (O) but it is probably Coldplay's most complete album for flowing together. Top Coldplay Albums:

1. AROBTH
2. Viva La Vida
3. Parachutes
4. Ghost Stories
5. X and Y
6. Mylo Xyloto

91Oceans
This song is one of the best from Ghost Stories. It's relaxing and should be much, much higher on this list.

92Crest of Waves
This is such a good song! Give it a try!

93Ode to Deodorant
Feels like you coldplayer forgot their first song. Or you never listened to it till the end. Go for it listen you will not regret.
First Coldplay song that got attention. Somebody said "Ode to Deodrant is s**t". I kinda agree, it is far from Coldplays best. It's worth a listen though just to see how far the band has developed

94Back for Good

95Billie Jean
Seriously? Who the hell put this here. ?

96Bloodless Revolution

971.36
Not something that is in the band's normal range but it is extremely good.

98Ladder to the Sun
Just heard it recently. probably their best song. the piano part is amazing and the lyrics are very cool. its such a shame they didn't put it with the other great songs

99A Spell a Rebel Yell

100Murder
