Best Coldplay Songs


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

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. - Songsta41

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.

Its kinda just the best one

2 Viva 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

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. - Songsta41

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!

I am the king!

3 The 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

An absolutely beautiful song

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

My favourite. - Userguy44

5 Yellow

. . . 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...

Love how all these unintelligible people are trying to explain why this isn't number 1. This is by far and away the most intricate yet simple piece they've done. I'm not the biggest Coldplay fan but the top 1 should be something more like this in my opinion.

1. Yellow
2. The Scientist
3. Charlie Brown
4. Fix You
5. Every Tear Drop Is A Waterfall
6. Life In Technicolour II
7. Clocks
8. Lovers In Japan
9. Violet Hill
10. Viva La Vida

6 Paradise

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!

Uhhh where do I start. The music video is weird. A guy on a unicycle in the middle of no where in a elephant suit waving to passer by's. They must have been like "What... the hell?! " Annoying. Get stuck in your head and in different times your humming it and it isn't good for some things like a meeting and date.

7 Speed 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.

Love this one. Back when Coldplay could make your spirit and consciousness soar. Shame they've given up with what made them great

8 Every 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

If there was a way for people to hear colour, then this song would be the most colourful. I know that seems weird and cheesy but seriously listen to it, it just screams “colour.” Dunno just my opinion. Only problem with this song is the “meh” songwriting around the start of it. But seriously that is a small complaint because the synths in this song are unique and vibrant and to be honest my favourite part of the song is the synth intro. - JoshHarmer25

9 Violet 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

Always stuck in your head, instrumental is great and lyrics too!

10 In 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 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"

Its seriously so good I loved it the minute I heard😍😍😍😍

The Contenders

11 Charlie 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.

Not the biggest Coldplay fan, but I really love this song. Have heard it over a hundred times and honestly it sounds better each time

V 90 Comments
12 Trouble

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 deserves to be in the top Ten!

V 73 Comments
13 Swallowed 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.

Best Coldplay song, by far. Though underrated, in my humble opinion, it is one of their very best songs

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!

Top 10 for sure

15 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!

so calming

16 Strawberry 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. 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

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

Flows in such a weird way that just works, it's amazing.

17 Don'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.

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.

Great Song - Matreku

18 Amsterdam

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..

1 word : Underrated

V 44 Comments
19 Life 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

20 Shiver

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

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!

Actually classic alternative music - StarlightSpanks

21 Politik

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!

You would never in a million years predict the mood change on your first listen and I think that is beautiful.

22 Warning 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.

This is a great song. - Userguy44

23 Till Kingdom Come

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

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 )

"Till Kingdom Come is a beautiful song - listen to the words and find the meaning."

V 25 Comments
24 Lost!

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.

This is honestly one of the most underrated songs of coldplay. Truly magical. Deserves to be in top 5.

V 32 Comments
25 Lovers 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.

This song is brilliant, underrated like other songs of Coldplay’s like Hurts Like Heaven, The Hardest Part, and Fun

V 18 Comments
26 Hurts 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

This song left me with bittersweet feels. This is my favorite song from Coldplay. I like the enjoyable beat, the lyrics, and the solo guitar in it.. this song is totally awesome

V 17 Comments
27 The 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.

This song hooks you from the beginning with the piano, and when Chris Martin's voice hits the high notes, it's the most beautiful sound in the world. My heart soars into the sky, breaking free from the limitations of life. I love all of Coldplay's work, but this is the one song that I love most of all. - pandagirl

This song is so underrated, an R.E.M. type original song. Other underrated songs I think are Lovers In Japan, Fun, Hurts Like Heaven

28 A 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. "

This has the best chorus in any Coldplay song

29 God Put a Smile Upon Your Face

This is the closest Coldplay have ever gone to pure rock music, and yet it blows away even the greatest rock bands.

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.

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

ROBTTH really isn't my favourite but this song at 29? This should at LEAST be top 20, top ten comfortably. Vote for this masterpiece!

V 27 Comments
30 Death 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"


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!

In my opinion the best Coldplay song

31 Hymn for the Weekend

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

This is gonna be in the top 10 before long.

I love this song. It's really catchy, and was stuck in my head for two weeks after I first heard it, not that I minded.

This song keeps me living

32 Cemeteries 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

This song is incredibly unique and has a certain character to it that no other song has. The guitar solo is also just one of the best.

33 Green 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.

Listening to it right now

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"

One of my favorite songs ever!

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...

So peaceful and beautiful

36 What If

This song is purely the best of Coldplay and it deserves to be so much better I can't believe that such an amazing song is down here the lyrics are perfect and mean a lot. I had this song in my head for almost two weeks. I love colplay's long songs because there is more time to perfect the song. This is one of them and It is just outrageous that it is so far down the list. I am begging here Coldplay you are best and what if is definitely your best song please move it lots of places forward because it deserves to be higher. Please take my comment into consideration WHAT IF for the win

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.

This is the best Coldplay song ever it is truly amazing and is honestly the best song out of the album. It is outrageous that it is all the way down here. This song needs to be number1 believe me It deserves to be the best song out of the top ten songs.

Hands down the best Coldplay song. Period.

37 See 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!

Love the range Martin shows in his picking. Definitely original and wisely only guitar is used.

38 Christmas 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.

Best Christmas song I've heard. It's not like most Christmas songs and is completely original unlike most over covered Christmas carols made famous by Mariah Carrie rip off singers. It's sad but not too sad unlike "Christmas shoes," and has different parts to it unlike "simply having a wonderful Christmas time" which is the same thing over and over again. Love this song and should be played on the radio more often.

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

Such an amazing and ORIGINAL Christmas song! Love it

39 X & 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.

First time listening to this song, I was stunned. It was just.. Beautiful. And soothing. Feels like I'm floating away in the beauty of the song. Definitely deserves a better position!

This is one of those songs that has an effect to it that makes you feel so good the chorus is literally heart stopping! I can only listen to it every once in a while or it will lose the effect it is I my second favorite song of all time

Great song very under appreciated..

40 Life 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!

Wisely short but could have been longer. Great instrumentals and a pleasant listen.

Why is this 32? One of the most legendary songs

Guys, you know this is the one with no singing? If you want the other one then it's life in technicolor II

41 Square One

This song I must compare to the most overused comparison ever- a box of chocolates. It has a bit of everything. It's a jack of all trades. Great theme and lyrics? Check, although they have better themes and lyrics in songs like A Warning Sign and Low. Catchy? Yes, but not as much as many other songs, especially ones on Mylo Xyloto. Great instrumentals? Yes yes YES. But not as much as some songs. Memorable and different from other Coldplay songs and songs in general? Yes, but... You fill it in. Overall, I love this song. - pandagirl

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!

Is there anybody out there who
is lost and hurt and lonely too
are they bleeding all your colours into one
and if you come undone
as if you've been run through
a catapult it fired you
you wonder if your chance will ever come
or if you're stuck in square one

beautiful beautiful lyrics

42 Everything'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!

Best Coldplay Song

43 Don'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.


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.


One of my favorite songs of all time.

Amazing song!, like the first songs of Coldplay... Simply AMAZING.

An amazing mix of rush of blood to the head and Mylo Xyloto. It gets better every listen.

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.


Number 44?

People must be trend-loving idiots.

45 Glass 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.

THIS SONG IS COMPLETELY UNDERRATED. They really should've put this on viva la Vida. I first heard it live at my first concert ever back when they were doing their viva la Vida tour. It stuck to me ever since. The piano, the almost bouncing guitar during the verse. It's just an amazing song. Especially the explosion in the outro. Just amazing.

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!

One of their 5 best songs, if it wasn't a b-side would be much higher in this list. - RandomPerson1234

46 White 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.

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.

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.

Song about the fact that almost nothing good, bad or strange (at the first glance) happens without reason and everything is connected in a way we cannot find out until we feel it fulfills and fits our lives. This songs should be higher - at least Top 20.

This song makes me feel like I'm in the sky. It's the type of song you can scream along to on the best night of your life or lay awake at night crying over. Beautiful, best from the Head Full of Dreams album along with Up & Up and Birds. One of my favourite Coldplay songs ever, and it should be yours too, though many people can't seem to get past the fact that Coldplay is a growing, experimenting band.

My favorite song from one of my favorite bands. It just transports me to a different universe and I can just let my mind wander while listening to it. - TheInsomniac

This is the best song in existence! This should be higher up. It is simply magical. I love the way it sort of transports you to a different universe.

You can tell Chris thought about this one since the lyrics are all meaningful and there are no fillers.

"My song is love to the loveless don't have to be alone...your heavy heart is made of stone...and it's so hard to see don't have to be on your own...and I'm not gonna take it back...and I'm not gonna say I don't mean that...your the target I'm aiming at...and I'm nothing on my own got to get that message home...and I'm on fire for and I'll get that message song is love...and I love you please come home...

...could be about anyone listening to his music and identifies with the listeners emotions on such a deep level. (And I only mentioned some of those lyrics, and there are few if any fillers or line open to doubt or intent or a listeners own interpretation. All the lyrics hit home. He doesn't miss a single fire at someone's heart.

Amazing. Wow. He can take someone who is wants to literally give up on life and Chris ...more

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 simple, beautiful ballad, about love and support.

In my opinion this is one of the greatest coldplay songs. Even though the collaboration with Rihanna gave it a pop feel and wasn't a true Coldplay song. Peace. Love coldplay. Keep it up guys!

This should be at the top of the list real soon... Top ten is a must

THIS SONG IS FAB! I know the older fans of Coldplay will say rihanna just not right for Coldplay, but you have to admit this song is catchy and the melody will just stuck in our head. This song deserves to be at least in top ten! Not 74 :( vote

Rihanna is such an inspiration, and she is so talented and intelligent. An amazing artist.
