Music Video: Coldplay, Life in Technicolor ii


Song: Life in Technicolor ii
Artist: Coldplay
Album: Prospekt’s March EP
Label: Parlophone Records
Notes: 1st single from EP
Analysis: Viva La Vida was such a fantastic and mesmerizing album that Coldplay released an  EP late last year, with 8 tracks that all easily could have made the album. One of these songs is ‘Life in Technicolor ii’, an extended version of the soaring instrumental intro from Viva La Vida, but with Chris Martin putting his vocals to the music. The video is one of those premises that might not look so good on paper, but in execution, you can’t imagine it any other way. Really cool puppet visuals and a great song, definitely some of the band’s best work.

Bonus: After the jump is a download link for the original LP instrumental version of ‘Life in Technicolor’.
