62 Twisted Logic

HOW is this song so low? I absolutely love Twisted Logic, it should be in the top ten at THE VERY LEAST. It has a very important meaning about the way we live and how we treat our planet. But you don't even need to understand it to hear how beautiful, passionate, and emotional it is. I am truly bewildered by how underrated this song is.

Oh my gosh. I love this song SO MUCH. It's really powerful, both musically and lyrically. It's my favorite song on X&Y and one of my top five favorite songs from Coldplay. I love most of their songs, but I just HAD to vote for this one because it is WAY too low. This should be at least be in the top twenty. Please, PLEASE vote this up higher. You will not regret it, I promise.

When do people ever take the time to listen to all these beautifully simplistic songs of Coldplay that are in some random corner of the internet when they have their yellow, their viva la vida and their paradise... the answer is never.

The tile gives you a clue. Key change(s). Random. The middle is maybe worth the listen.

63 Fun

There's something haunting about the opening guitar riff. Haunting in the best way. It's coupled with the haunting yet joyful memories of past love in the lyrics. This song isn't really fun, but I don't think it's supposed to be. It's introspective for sure. My personal favorite on the album!

Best song of a Head full of dreams by far

Could be "funner" but still a decent song and should, as it did, make the album.

64 Ghost Story

This song honestly surprised me on the Sky Full Of Stars EP. I was expecting something worse than what is on Ghost Stories considering it didn't make the final cut but it blew me away. The guitar is enchanting and beautiful and sounds similar to a few of the songs on Parachutes. Lyrics and vocal range are amazing from Chris. Great song and should rise from 102 hopefully.

Best song on the EP and out of all of Ghost Stories. If only it was known..

The opening line is so beautiful.

Aside from the middle part of this song, this song is beautiful. The beginning and end are just amazing. If they were to redo this song and make the middle just as good as the beginning and end it's a top 5 song.

A very mysterious and compelling songs, I had to put this on the list.

Make me shivering every time

66 Army of One

Great song chris brought this to life makes me sing along every time top 10 for definite

Love this song! X marks the spot, not so much

I put this at the total BOTTOM nothing gets worse than this. It's repetitive and terribly annoying

'My army of one is gonna fight for you' just this

67 Adventure of a Lifetime

I'm a HUGE Coldplay fan, and I've gotta say this song rocks! Can't wait for a head full of dreams!

I've been a Coldplay fan for years, and honestly this may be there best song to date. Seriously it's awesome

I love it! It's very new, but it's very upbeat and just awesome! One of my favorite songs of 2015 by far!

#64... Really!? This song is wicked underrated! Awesome vibes.

68 Parachutes

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

Just wish it was slightly longer!

69 Rainy Day

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

We're seperated now ohh but I love when you come into d house I love it when you come into my house... Best song ever

70 High Speed

Call me a pessimist, but the fact that a ton of Mylo Xyoto songs are above this, Spies and other amazing early Coldplay songs annoys me. I wish Coldplay stuck with their roots with their later albums. They've written so many beautiful songs that most people who are 'Coldplay fans' probably haven't heard of. Musically, 'High Speed' is awesome and possesses that spacey guitar feel that is the signature of early Parachutes-era Coldplay. Excellent song. I would recommend anyone to really closely listen to Parachutes start to finish. Trust me, it's worth it.

How this song isn't in the top 10 beats me.. So mellow and yet so powerful. The bass line and the drums alone are epic

I like the intro more but the rest are just great. This song must move up in High Speed! Like, maybe Top 40 perhaps?

Hypnotic...makes you fall half asleep and half awake...kinda like trance...beautiful...

71 Brothers and Sisters

A very meaningful song! Very relevant in today's world! Everyone who fights with others will, after hearing this song, know the importance of making peace and not wasting precious time fighting. Spectacular!

Tough is not very known, I have to say this song is AMAZING!
Great intro, nice guitar and lyrics - joxoko

Great song! Great guitar intro and chorus! Should be in top 20!

Brother and sister is a is a special song. in my opinion the best song before their first album.

72 Midnight

Totally amazing! It exudes the same passion as their other stuff, even though it is so different. From the hypnotic electronic pulse to heavily processed vocals to the darkest lyrics Chris has ever written, it would be difficult to listen to Clocks and then this without wondering "Was that the same band in both songs? " This is my all-time favorite Coldplay song and I think it will, in time, be considered one of their classics. I love it!

I figured this song would be down here at 106 since people vote for the most popular and not best Coldplay songs. I'm not saying it's the best Coldplay song ever made, but it's my personal favorite from Ghost Stories, an album which I don't understand why it's getting so much hate. Being a fan since Parachutes, I enjoyed it and this song was my favorite from it, having a certain atmosphere that I can't get enough of. I love this song and hope it gets more votes.

A work of art by a band who has written many incredible songs, Midnight is my favorite Coldplay song because on top of the emotional immersion that most of their work has, it creates a physical sensation. The first time I heard it I couldn't have told you what the song said, but I could easily describe the feeling behind it.

I swear, picking my favorite Coldplay song is like picking your favorite child. There are many songs created by Coldplay that I cherish, but something about 'Midnight' has a feeling to it that's indescribable. It's different than any of the songs they've produced. Unlike many tunes, I could put this song on repeat and still appreciate everything about it and it's unspoken depth. I don't know a single song quite like this; it's one of a kind.

73 Something Just Like This

At first I wasn't keen on this one, but then I listened to it again and now I like it. Love the "do do doo, do do doo" bit. Sick.

Great song...coldplay rocks

This is the best song after Viva la vida

I love it! #Coldplay #Chainsmokers #something just like this

74 True Love

The title of the song really speaks for what the song is actually trying to tell us about.

Get to number 1. ASAP!

This song is just so beautiful. It's one of my favorite songs from Ghost Stories. I think that "True Love" is one of Coldplay's most beautiful songs ever made and deserves to be higher than 75.

75 Another's Arms

I had my earphones on with music being played throughout the night while I slept. In the morning around 6 AM, I woke up with this song and the weather outside just complemented this song perfectly; breezy, cloudy, kind of dark, drizzles. The song felt to have come alive for me and to have woken up to the song made my day. I would want to wake up to this song everyday. The interlude were just ethereal, perfect. You don't want this song to stop, even more so for the interlude which feels rather short. I listened to that song at least five time today morning.

What A Ghastly and amazing song! This is definitely one of the Bests of Coldplay! Ghost Stories? You betcha!

I can't put my finger on why but this song really has a hold of me! It's got a really cool and unique atmosphere

You can feel the sadness of chris martin because of his breakup with gwyneth paltrow.

76 How You See the World

Seriously, nothing? It's a more aggressive sound while still containing their sound it's hard when it's soft its one of the best songs.

Is this song on an album or is it just played live? It's good no matter what though.

77 Everglow

The piano "glows" in this one. You can tell it just gets better and better. From the simplicity of The Scientist to Everglow. The best song on A Head Full of Dreams. Should be ranked much higher than way down here...

A song so moving when you are low its hard to find something that matches it, I'll be honest its sad to find this down here if you listen to it and it moved you, come back here and lets see this at the top some day!

Best song Coldplay has written since Viva la Vida.

This song is amazing! Should at least be in the top ten

79 Moving to Mars

Fantastic! This is the best song on the Every Teardrop is a Waterfall EP in my opinion. It's awesome and deserves to belong to people without iTunes accounts!

Just listen to this song a few times, then you will realize how beautiful it is.. Just because it is number 57 on this list doesn't mean it isn't a good song. This song deserves a higher spot like, in the teens. I LOVE this song.

So simple but yet pure. Whenever I hear this, I want to just lay my head on the desk and close my eyes. It moves from simple beautiful piano notes to when the chorus begins at '8 to 9, 9 to 10'. Even words can't describe it! Whoever is not at least voting for this song hasn't heard enough of Coldplay.
It is an unofficial track on the album Mylo Xyloto. Whyy?! Ethereal.
Please please listen to this you will not regret spending 4:19 minutes listening to this song.

Not a good song

80 Low

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.

One of their best, should be higher
