Best Coldplay Songs


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Chinese Sleep Chant

After we're put to sleep by the weakest track on viva la Vida in my opinion (Yes), this hidden gem jumps out at us to wake us up. With the jangly guitars, loud drums, and dream like vocals, this song is not only energetic, but almost puts me in a trance. One of the best hidden tracks I've ever heard. It's short but sweet and I enjoy every second of it. Such a great song.

104 Crest of Waves

Great guitar, great complexity, great verses and vocals, completely overrated. I miss the old Coldplay. I wish they were still releasing masterpieces like these today.

This is such a good song! Give it a try!

I hope that this eventually gets higher on the list. It's actually a really good song!

The title is exactly what it sounds like. Could definitely be higher than what it is here!

105 Such a Rush

The vocals in this are amazing, and it's a shame this song isn't that well known. I was pretty surprised too see other songs from "The Blue Room" here, but Such A Rush was absent.

106 Easy to Please

This song is beautiful, and so atmospheric. In just a few lines, it creates lots of feelings within. With the haunting atmosphere, mellow acoustics, amazing vocals, and a short, but beautiful piano tune; this song is surely one of Coldplay's best.

107 Bloodless Revolution
108 Ladder to the Sun

Uknown song but give it a listen on yt and you will understand why it should be way higher...

Just heard it recently. probably their best song. the piano part is amazing and the lyrics are very cool. its such a shame they didn't put it with the other great songs

109 Reign of Love

When I first listened to this I have to admit, I didn't like it but as I listened to the Viva la Vida Album over again, I grew to It and I love it!

110 O (Reprise)
111 Birds

Best song in the album!

112 Proof

It may not be THE best of Coldplay's songs but certainly deserves a mention, and is a top 10 in my book.

113 Ode to Deodorant

Feels like you coldplayer forgot their first song. Or you never listened to it till the end. Go for it listen you will not regret.

114 Sleeping Sun

Really no one even added this to the list? It's better than at least 5 of the top 10!

115 Lhuna
116 Loveless

Although this is a song that was barely recorded, the few seconds that you hear it strike you to the bone. Its Beautiful in an unfinished untouched way.

117 Colour Spectrum

I agree a head full of dreams doesn't even belong on the Coldplay playlist

No... Just don't... Please no head full of dreams songs on this list. Technically, it's not a Coldplay album.

Colour Spectrum all the way 😉

120 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.

My favorite coldplay song so meaningful...
