Perhaps the fact that the safe playing world of mainstream music radio, and it's need to rotate some of their early hits with annoying regularity has never helped, and of course the 'celebrity' interest also 'grates'.
That said musically they remain a highly distinct sounding band, and lets face it the music blogs are currently awash with articles on the release of the new album 'Viva La Vida'.
So for those of you, who like a little Coldplay, here is a copy of their 2006 appearance at the Isle Of Wight festival in England.
1. Square One
4. Speed Of Sound
5. What If
6. God Put A Smile Upon Your Face
7. Don't Panic
8. White Shadows
9. The Scientist
10. Til Kingdom Come
11. Perfect Day (Lou Reed Cover)
14. Swallowed In The Sea
15. In My Place
16. Fix You
(plus intro & outro radio chatter)
The quality is quite good - sourced as I understand, from the UK's Virgin Radio DAB output, so not as clean as stereo FM, but highly listenable.
