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.

Definitely the best song, speaks to the soul and brings out your emotions. Thank you for this great music Coldplay.

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!

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

Better than Viva La Vida and just barely better than Fix you. This is their most iconic song and the vocals are amazing, the lyrics are great it just sounds amazing, one of the best songs of all time

4 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...

This is the best possible introduction to an Alternative Rock song. While this band has made so many memorable songs...Yellow stands out. Its melodic, has harsh guitar riffs that somehow sound great with the song.

5 Clocks

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 by far the best song by Coldplay.

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!

love it!

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

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.

This is my favorite song on my favorite album! - KRX

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

Best song ever...

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"

After some thought, I really thing this song is Coldplay's best. It's so perfect. The guitar lines, the drums, the vocals, and everything else about this song is smooth and well done. For awhile I thought Viva la Vida was my favorite song but after listening to it for a few months, I got bored with it. Whenever I think about Coldplay, I think about A Rush of Blood to the Head, and whenever I think about A Rush of Blood to the Head, I think about In My Place. So perfect, so emotional, so good. Best Coldplay right here, folks.

The Contenders

11 A Sky Full of Stars A Sky Full of Stars

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.

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!

13 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

14 Swallowed in the Sea

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

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

This has to be Coldplay's most underrated song ever!

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.

15 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 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

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

So UNDERRATED, I can not believe this People listen tooth's song UNTIL THE END

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..

17 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.

Peaceful and absolutely beautiful. Evokes emotions that can’t quite be described.

19 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.

Great Song - Matreku

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.

This is a great song. - Userguy44

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.

22 Politik

This is one of the best Coldplay songs BY FAR. One of the most intense songs by them, it just keeps evolving! Another jewel from their best album, A Rush Of Blood To The Head!

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!

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."

24 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 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. )

28 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.

Absolutely incredible. Every time I listen to this I feel basked in security and emotion. It doesn't make me feel like my troubles are gone, just that they don't matter and that everything will be fine. All the different versions are fantastic: "Lost! ", "Lost? " and "Lost+" - I know it's the same song, but they all make me feel incredible in such different ways. Coldplay are the best band in the world.

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.

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!

One of the only songs on the planet I could listen to endlessly without getting tired of it.

30 Death and All His Friends

In my opinion the best Coldplay song

One of my all time favourites. Truly great song

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!

Beautiful song with a memorable outro

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

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.

36 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

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.

37 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!

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 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.

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.

41 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

I Love the tone of this song. It starts off very grim and escalates to very inspirational and epic chorus line. This is probably one of Coldplay's most underrated and least heard of songs.

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

THIS SONG NEVER GETS OLD AND It's A FEW MONTHS TILL 2019

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.

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.

47 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.

Why the hell is this so far down, it's not quite my favourite coldplay song, that probably goes to warning sign, but seriously this song is beautiful and should be in the top 20 at the very least. The way it builds up slowly and only reaches it's first chorus after the 2 minutes of meaningful and emotional singing. Great lyrics, really great lyrics. It never got the radio play of clocks, viva la vita or paradise, but just because it's not a single doesn't mean it's not good!

Maybe you'll stumble upon it

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.

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!

56th? Has to be higher.

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 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.

The lyrics aren't sad to me- they have a powerful meaning that sort of lightens up at the end. And WHY is this, of all songs, so low? I came here thinking it would be AT LEAST in the top 30. Thumbs up for the simple, rhythmic old-type Coldplay roots. Hope someday they make another album like Parachutes.

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!

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.

Sound eerily like white shadows. Lyrically open to interpretation with little meaning or value. Is depressing, making love hard to get, by the lyrics or seems by what Chris is saying...
