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.

Fix You is a totally awesome song, like all of their songs, but it's not the best. I believe the best is Viva La Vida. Does anyone agree?

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

Whats wrong with having this song as your favorite? You cannot say that you are not a true Coldplay fan if this is your favorite. Opinions differ from one another. - Powerfultekin

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!

Simply a masterpiece

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

I cry each time I here this song. An overflow of emotions

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...

I really can't pick a favorite Coldplay song, but if forced at gun point, I would say this song was ultimately the best.

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!

Amazing song!

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.

Has the essence of life weaved troughout this songs composition, if that makes sense. It's too good - even to the point of being uncomfortable. Fix you is amazing but I definitely think this is almost on par, should at least be second to be honest.

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

One of the few songs one can listen to in every mood.

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

Incredible song
way too low in list

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"

This song needs to be higher in THIS PLACE

The Newcomers

? Daylight

This song is amazing! I love it when Chris sing "slowly breakin through the daylight" again and again

How is this so low? It isn't their best by any stretch but Chris Martin's singing accompanied with the some great piano, drums and bass in background makes for a solid song on a great album.

I like this song a lot. It definitely doesn't deserve to be all the way down here at the bottom of the list. I always imagine a pretty sunrise when I hear it.

FANTASTIC

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.

I just love this song. It tells the story of Mylo and Xyloto, who are in love and run away together, as that is the only way they can be together. It gives me hope that eventually everything will be alright, love will eventually overcome anything.

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 is absolutely beautiful and should totally be in the top tens

13 Talk

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!

I listened to it yesterday and it is my fave. I know I've heard it somewhere before in the past but I can't remember when and where. This is the best

14 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.

Oh the lyrics..

15 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.

Very good song even Frank Ocean did his own version of it - JESUSISKING

16 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.

Fantastic calming song. By the way, the first Coldplay song I've ever heard but found out who's singing around the release of their second album.

17 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

A THIS SONG IS AMAZING

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..

What an untouchably beautiful song.

19 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!

Ever since I've heard this song, it has occupied a place in my heart no other song has ever since, and probably no song ever will.
