Best Coldplay Songs

The Top Ten

1 Fix You Fix You Cover Art

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

Really? This isn't even the best song on the album. The radio has done a very bad job of publicizing Coldplay, because now their most popular songs aren't even nearly their best. The deep tracks, however, are sometimes some of my favorite song of all time. For example, from the same album, Swallowed in the Sea is so much better. Give it a listen, you just might like it more.

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.

Beautifully seductive yet, very forward with hint of desperation lyrically. Unique tune of great quality and a signature Coldplay hook. Masterful work!

2 Viva la Vida Viva la Vida Cover Art

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

Anyone who sees this, Coldplay has done much better than Viva la Vida. It barely makes my top Coldplay songs list, and if this is your favorite Coldplay song, you are not a true fan.

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!

This song gust makes me want to sing and dance I don't care if anyone is watching

3 The Scientist The Scientist Cover Art

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

One of the most emotional songs ever written. The chord progression combined with Chris Martin's incredible vocal performance result in sheer musical perfection.

4 Yellow Yellow Cover Art

. . . it's 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 don't 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...

This is definitely one of the most beautiful songs I've heard. I'm close to crying whenever I listen to it!

5 Clocks Clocks Cover Art

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

Clocks is the best Coldplay song by a wide margin. Not that they don't have other great songs, but clocks is in a league of its own

6 Paradise Paradise Cover Art

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!

Best song of my life, this song is the perfect description of what Coldplay represents. This song shows off the fantastic voice and music that Coldplay has to offer and the unique sound/style that differentiates them from the rest of the bands in the world, can't even say genre due to there uniqueness! If God had a single favorite song, we all should know this is what he would have chosen or we are ignorant to the majestic nature of this song... Go elephants... (watch music video)

7 Speed of Sound Speed of Sound Cover Art

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.

Although not good enough to be in the top 5, this song is definitely deserving of a top 10 spot.

8 Violet Hill Violet Hill Cover Art

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

This is a phenomenal song--for one, it is catchy and melodic. It is also an astute commentary on politics, specifically the separation of church and state (as seen in the lyrics "and the banks became cathedrals").

9 Every Teardrop is a Waterfall Every Teardrop is a Waterfall Cover Art

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

How is this only number 7? I feel like this happens a lot; people come here and vote for the songs by artists they don't know particularly well. The mainstream numbers end up high on these lists just because the people voting don't actually have any experience with the variety of the artists' work. Meanwhile, stellar pieces like Every Teardrop is a Waterfall only get 3%.

10 In My Place In My Place Cover Art

I don't think many real fans voted here. They just simply went with the popualair ones.
This song is just amazing.

This song is more than just amazing, it's very memorable and perhaps one of the best songs ever. - Shevanda04

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"

The first Coldplay song which I recognized the band. This song is Coldplay's signature for me.

The Contenders

11 A Sky Full of Stars

The greatest coldplay's song ever! Once you heard it, you will be hook! Can't stop listening it!

One of the best coldplay songs I have ever heard coldplay and avicii had done a great work

This is not the new Coldplay, this is just them playing their musics and has share their souls into it!

I listened to this song minutes before I found out my cousin had passed. I was outside and saw a butterfly and rainbow, two of her favorite things. This is a top ten favorite song for me.

12 Talk Talk Cover Art

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!

This song continues to get better and better every time I listen to it

13 Charlie Brown Charlie Brown Cover Art

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.

This song is amazing. By far the best song on the album which includes paradise and every teardrop is a waterfall which are both in my top 5. That's how good this song is. It needs to just explode and become huge because while I usually like to keep my favorite songs to myself this song is so good it needs to be heard by everyone

14 Swallowed in the Sea Swallowed in the Sea Cover Art

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.

This song is so underrated! The progression is amazing, with an amazing climax at the end!

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.

To all Swallowed in the Sea army, let's vote for this song. Top 10 position should be deserved.

15 Trouble Trouble Cover Art

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)

This song should be number 1. It's one of my favorite songs.Great riff. Good guitar. Nice rock. Epic vocals. All in all, awesome song.It's a nice song with very cute music. It makes me feel relax, Its fabulous.

16 Amsterdam Amsterdam Cover Art

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

Make it through the first half and this song will simply blow your mind!

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. "

In my opinion the best song Coldplay ever made.. It builds up to this amazing finale that moves you very much.. Love it..

17 Strawberry Swing Strawberry Swing Cover Art

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. It's 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 saying, it makes you happy when you are down

Just soo soothing and melodic like an incense with a pleasant aroma

Ghosh, This one is addiction. Awesome!. Even the music video is mind blowing.

18 Shiver Shiver Cover Art

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!

This song is so peaceful and is one of those songs that make me feel relaxed. Aside from the harmony of it, if you look into the lyrics, it is actually a beautiful song about unrequited love. Chris Martin's voice is also yearning in this song and it will make you feel so emotional

19 Don't Panic Don't Panic Cover Art

.. 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.

Easy and fun to play on acoustic guitar. Truly original and stands on it's own. Electric guitars riffs during "we live in a beautiful world" makes this such an enjoyable listen. Not to take anything away from the title but Coldplay could have easily titled this Beautiful World. Yeah. Beautiful World would be a really nice title in my opinion.

First time I hear this song... Its sounds very familiar like I can sort relate to it. Awesome

20 Life in Technicolor II Life in Technicolor II Cover Art

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

Yeah, This is very underrated song, which has great music and great lyrics. Its something out of ordinary.

What a great opener of a great album. It works great with the last track The Escapist

The instruments are amazing especially when the drum enters intro - great song

21 Warning Sign Warning Sign Cover Art

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.

This is my favorite Coldplay song of all time. Oh my God, it's so beautiful and definitely demands a listen from you if you've never heard it before. "And the truth is, I miss you..." Criminally underrated. Take care fellow Coldplay fans!

22 Politik Politik Cover Art

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!

One of their best rock n roll songs! Simply awesome the emotion and mystery in this!

23 Till Kingdom Come Till Kingdom Come Cover Art

One of the best Coldplay songs. It's REALLY underrated!

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!

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 )

This is one of Coldplay's best and most underrated songs! It makes you feel like you're going in the right direction, and it calms you. To me, it really captures the essence of Coldplay.

24 A Rush of Blood to the Head A Rush of Blood to the Head Cover Art

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. "

This song is extremely underrated compared to their other songs. Yes it is a bit slow at first, but once you get farther into it, it begins to sound like you're in a tense scene in an action movie. I often go through phases of a certain song, where I play it over and over again, and this is one of those songs (along with Clocks, Yellow, Trouble, Paradise, etc. )

25 Hymn for the Weekend

I know this band for this song.Something beautiful happened here.

This song has to be no. 1 It triggers something in my heart that no other song has ever done.

It's brings out so many emotions in oneself,it should be way higher

Once it gets enough audience, this song will simply spring onto the top ten list... Such an awesome song it is
