That was awesome. Really hit the spot. Ladies and Gentleman, I give you the most epic and beautiful Coldplay song played so far for this album.

It's incredible. You can hear it: They still have Parachutes in them. 9/10.

Oh wow. Goosebumps.

You know, this is what I've been waiting for from the LP5 era. This is the track that should've been released opposed to ETIAW. Because this is beautiful and this is what Coldplay is about.

Absolutely stunning piano work on it, and Chris's voice has had minimal tampering. He's taken the lower gravelly tone (like the beginning of Christmas Lights) and then mixed it with higher notes. And it makes it diverse and it works so well.

And then when the rest of the instruments kick in, it's still not overdone and it still makes it feel surreal and beautiful and all these things.

Just wow guys. Wow. :heart:

8/10 (but I'm sure listening more it will become 9... Maybe even a 10).

it's certainly Pink Floyd-esque in some bits, which is fine by me.


i have a feeling that LP5 might end up being my favorite album.

Anyone knows Donnie Darko? Amazing film, and the beginning of this song kind of reminds me of it, the soundtrack, the haunting sound. Different for Coldplay, but very typical of Pink Floyd for example, especially the guitar solo. Still, very beautiful.

I voted 8.
A 9 would be brilliantly amazing, a 10 is for A Rush Of Blood to the Head (Live 2003), my reference for perfection.

Overall thoughts: gorgeous track! A beautiful mix between old and brand new Coldplay. There's some Pink Floyd, some old Bowie and even some Cockney Rebel, but mostly Coldplay in there. This bodes really well for the album.

How on Earth is it anything like Donnie Darko?

anyways I don't really like it even though there's piano, the song just doesn't feel to have emotion in it for me, It sounds kinda like he was singing it drunk and swaying around with the effects.It just feels like a random load of tunes shoved together.

Well I'm giving it a 4 since it's certainly better than ETIAW.

I had to give this one a few listens before voting. I wasn't too crazy about the sound at the start, I don't really like the gravely Chris voice. But as the song got going I started to like it. I also felt it reminded me a bit of Pink Floyd. I think the more I listen to it the more I like it. I find it still hard to tell though because I much prefer to listen to songs out of my stereo nice and loud, versus coming out of my crappy computer.

8. Still trying to gey used to the new sound. But i quite like it! it reminds me of an old coldplay song from the AROBTTH era.. I just cant figure out which one!:(

Voted 9, because i miss a Middle 8 in that Song but in the end the Song is fucking amazing, the beginning reminds me of an old Song which is really cool.

princesanji
24-06-2011, 12:33 PM
Wow this is just a wonderful piece. It starts out with a very sad and jazzy tune and Chris' low voice and proceeds with a typical Coldplay sound we have not heard since X&Y.
The piano again has the major role, accompanied by a blurry sound of Jon's guitar and acoustic guitar as we know from Life in Technicolor. Then there are these nice lead sounds from our dear Jonny, strings in the background, a carrying drumwork and a driving sound that remembers me of Christmas Lights.
It seems Coldplay have kind of stepped back a little to what they used to be before Viva La Vida or Death and all his Friends, and i really love this new song. It gives me hope for LP5 to be absolutely brilliant - that is why it really deserves the 10 out of 10!

I quite like this song. Compared to wa wa wa wa waterfall, this is wayyyyy better. Maybe wa wa wa wa waterfall dropped my expectation of how another song of theirs' should sound like, so this one sounds good now.
And Chris's vocals in this song is a lot better.

The ending can morph into X&Y trololol.

I like this song. I really do.

24-06-2011, 12:46 PM
I have to be honest, after hearing Major Minus, I was a little apprehensive to hear MTM. I was nervous about the direction that they seemed to be heading in. I appear to be in the minority as I love ETIAW. The first 30 seconds or so of MTM, I have to be honest, I thought 'what are they doing?' Im not sure I like Chris' voice here, but then the song starts to build and becomes, quite frankly, awesome. I have listened half a dozen times since it was released in the last hour or so. I think I love it and it will become a classic up there with Scientist and Amsterdam, I think. I cant wait to hear this live at Splendour in the Grass!

Lovisa
24-06-2011, 12:52 PM
When I listened to it for the first time I didn't like the way Chris's voice sounded in the beginning... But when it came to the chorus... Wow. I'm speechless :shocked2: ! It's a 9 for me! :D

princesanji
24-06-2011, 12:53 PM
8/9 great song but again a too short one....

no^^
MM was short with 3:30, but 4:18 for MTM is just fine.
i recently discovered, all the hit singles from coldplay are in a range from 4-5 minutes ! also, in the radio the longer ones like clocks which is over 5 minutes were cut to a radio edit!

Moving to Mars or Major Minus

Just heard it... wowwwww! Totally agree with all the comments so far. Has a real classic sound about it. Also agree it has a real feel of bowie about it, for me more so than pink floyd, but then that could be the spacey strings and the magical guitar work from Jonny.

I wonder if the EP is going to be an excerpt from the album, in which case surely this track has to feature, or if it's like a bonus extra to it, in which case i'm excited about the songs we haven't yet heard.

Such a shame about the studio version of MM. Grrr! Damn you Eno!! I know, I know - let it go!

Either way this track is a great example of a new direction with classic sound for me.

I'm digging it! I initially rated it a 6 but I think I had a different expectation than what it ended up being. On 2nd and 3rd listening it is creeping up on me..starting to grow on me, like many great songs out there have on first listen. Nice track overall though and happy to have been waken up (7am here) by an ill-timed (or perfectly timed?) phone call!

Also, after hearing this I am even more so excited about the potential for a live release (like 2003) of these songs. Major Minus is epic live and I get the feeling this would be too..along with all the other new material that they have played during their festival run! :)

24-06-2011, 01:57 PM
I didn't like this song, until it swelled into a beautiful, eerie, haunting melody, that actually gives you this lonely, bizarre, and sad feeling of what it would be like to be drifting away from earth, the only home you have ever known, forever. How did they manage to capture that in a song?! Incredible :nice:

I would say beginning is similar to Fix You (the song I can't stand in original version).
Also I don't think Pink Floyd classic guitar riff rip off is a good thing.

Back in 2008 when I listened to Viva La Vida (the song) I felt as if a whole new world opened up to me. It was an amazing feeling that I have not felt with a Coldplay song since. I just heard MTM and my eyes have been opened again. Bravo Coldplay.

YouTube - &#x202a;Tom Petty &amp; The Heartbreakers - Mary Jane&#39;s Last Dance (Studio Version)&#x202c;&rlm;

After releasing two of the worst Coldplay songs ever, "Moving to Mars" may be their best one since "Til Kingdom Come". I may actually give this a 9/10. This is considering how I give a 5 to "Major Minus" and a 2 to ETIAW.

Cleggy
24-06-2011, 04:38 PM
Out of ETIAW and Major Minus I think this is the best track. To be honest though I hope none of them make the album because I'd prefer it if the album was new and fresh with songs we've never heard before (Except Charlie Brown, Hurts Like Heaven and Us Against The World). My scores for the EP are as follows:

ETIAW: 4/10
Major Minus: 7/10
Moving to Mars 9/10

If ETIAW is on the album but neither of the others are I'll be pretty frustrated.

Didn't read all the posts... but the piano at the beginning reminds me a lot of that classical piece he played after Politik during the Viva tour.

Amazing and beautiful song. I was disappointed my Major Minus (studio release at least, Live is amazing), but this really makes up for it.

Haven't felt this good about song since I discovered Arcade Fire.

ETIAW 4/5
Major Minus 5/5
MTM 3/5

So why did they release the digital single with just ETIAW, the physical single with ETIAW and MM, and then the digital EP with ETIAW, MM, and MTM? Also does the release of the EP mean they're trying to hold us off because the album is a ways away? :confused:

10/10, its a goosebump inducing, elegant, dreamy, song. Chris experimented with different vocal ranges and Jonny Buckland was the star of the song. I enjoyed how it included a bit of every Coldplay album inside. The simplicity of Parachutes, the edginess of AROBTTH, the space/electronic roots of X&Y, and VLV's boldness (reminds me of 42 and Yes). The perfect song.

wow, absolutely not hoping for this (maybe) 'out of theme' songs. i was quite surprised after etiaw, major minus, charlie brown, etc, they released a song like this. so pure! Chris' piano is back!!! they don't put any fancy filter on chris' voice *phew* no electric eclectic sounds effects like waterfall or charlie brown. this song remind me to 'a message' from x & y, but this one is darker and more sentimental.

8/10 beautiful tracks, beautiful arrangement. But i have to say, major minus is still the best new songs

I'm liking this song, really, but probably I'll need to listen to it and feel it more "mine" in order to appreciate it in all its beauty.
I think it's fun how everyone says "it's parachute-ish", it's "a rush-ish", it's "x&y-ish"...simply, it's Coldplay, all their music and all thei different vibes are in them, they just evolve, but they have all their magics with them all the time!

10 out of 10, this song is amazing. One random thing this song reminded me of is Animals because when the drums first come in it sounds like it might be on a drum machine + some of the spaceyvibey songs Animals has. But this song really is like nothing else; it's absolutely wonderful. In the chorus when Will joins in singing.... :D

The first time I listened to it, I thought to myself, "where is this epic Jonny lead?" but I've realized that this song will be really bloody mega once Jonny gets his hands on an e-bow... :lol:

After a couple of listening quietly at home (i can't stop listen it, jeez) I would say this is a new level for Coldplay, almost perfect combination of roots with multilayer eno's sound. I said almost perfect because they definitely borrow some bits.

But this is serious, deep and emotional music, something about tiny bit like human love of a one man and it connection with the universe, equality of this things, they equal beauty of love with unreachable stars, because it's all the same substance. Amazing song. It must be on the album, a beautiful close track.

Sorry for English, I can't express properly everything I feel about this song.

I like the song but I have some doubts about the very first part of the song where I can hear some vocal "mistakes".... I mean some words finish too low for his register.

After hearing ETIAW I was upset in that Coldplay had moved so far away from what I considered to be 'their sound' that I just wasn't enjoying it.

Major Minus helped to resotre the little faith that I had lost however I wasn't convinced with the studio recording.

Just when I thought they'd lost touch they come back with this amazing song.

Moving To Mars is fucking wonderful.

Incredible song! This is the evolved Coldplay we've been waiting for :nice: I rated it a 9, it's just pure quality.

But it really does beg the question as to why on earth they thought ETIAW was in any way shape or form superior to this? If this is left off the album in favour of ETIAW, it will be totally embarrassing. The band really need to start tightening their quality control, there really just isn't any excuse when they can clearly still produce amazing music.

At High Speed
24-06-2011, 09:36 PM
A 10 out of 10, or maybe a 10 out of 1.

The melody is just a really really really obsessing!!! And it feels linked to the lyrics, just the way Coldplay intended to be felt. It feels as if we are the drug addict man the band were searching for, when these songs were composed. And yes, it is an awkwardly strange and shockingly different music (along with all the other LP songs), but this is what they wanted, and it is what we all should have expected to hear on the LP5 era.

Good luck and best wishes to Coldplay!!!!

majgirl
25-06-2011, 02:31 AM
I'm giving it a 7/10 but 7.5 is more accurate. Its definitely the best thing I've heard from them in quite awhile. There are a few issues that keep it from a full 8. I find that transition in style in the middle of the song a little less smooth than I would like, but better than the one on 42. I'm not totally digging the super low pitch of Chris's voice in the beginning, but still FAR better than the distorted mess from MM. At this point I just have no idea what direction this album is going to be headed in. It really feels like they are attempting every style of music they can think of. Time will tell if I shall enjoy the result of their experimentation.

Moving To Mars
After spending my day listening to it every time I could and reading all the comments. I think this is what the song does for us:
1. It's simple yet powerful
2. Perfect mix of the old and new
3. It has heart and soul

4. It has the merit of bringing ALL the coldplayers back together again. Finally a song that we all love (51% gave it a 10/10 and 30% a 9 or an 8, I think this is the 1st song that has achieved this feat on coldplaying.com). No more fighting.

5. This song is so amazing that I don't think the world is ready for what has to come next.
Can the boys top this, I hope they do but after freaking out all day over this new wonder, I think I'll die, lol.
6. Chris is singing numbers ("8 to 9, 9 to 8, 76543") and this song is still beautiful. A countdown never sounded better.
7. Did I mention that this song is amazing.
8. We should start petition for a video. I will start a thread for that matter.

I'll say 8/10 for now, I really like this. After a few listens I found the overall progression of the song to be absolutely wonderful. The vibe seems to start at Billie Holiday, move into a little 10cc (I'm Not In Love), and then open up into Pink Floyd. Seems like a weird combo, but it flows so well.


/wonders if Chris saw e-mail to Debs re: The Dark Side of the Moon in early 2010 and got inspired, that would be crazy

25-06-2011, 06:31 AM

Because this is beautiful and this is what Coldplay is about.
Exactly... that's why I instantly loved it. Not that I didn't like Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall, but it was so different from the Coldplay that we know and love. This is what we've come to expect from them. It's a shame that this song likely won't be on the album.

So I initially really liked Moving to Mars but now I'm at this point where I LOVE MTM!

There's a way when you listen to a song sometimes you see little things you would change or you see ways you would have gone about it differently.

MTM actually feels...spacey. It's like, everything put together I just get this distinct image of someone floating through space sort of looking down on earth. And obviously that's my visual, but I really do feel the whole weightless of space is somehow built into the song. I don't even know how.

And I really love the way Chris starts at such a low register. This being a very different song than Yes, I feel like its really used to perfection in building the song up. The song is definitely not pop in the way ETIAW is (which I don't see as a bad thing) and it's not U2ish (which I think MM is - to its detriment). It's weird in a way because its very different from normal Coldplay with that beat coming in 1:30ish.

But they just pull this song off so well. And all the production on the song is INCREDIBLE. Bravo Mr. Dravs, Mr. Eno, and any other who had a hand in this. Coldplay really outdid themselves in my opinion here. The song never reaches too far or tries too hard. It doesn't try to make you cry or shout. It's sort of right in the middle of that. Which is kind of another reason I think it's spacey. It exists in a space you cannot really put your finger on.

Moving to Mars lovefest over.

I'm so disappointed with this. I've only just had my first couple of listens now, and all I can say is that if this is what LP5 is going to be like, I'm not going to be listening to the album for long. I can't quite put my finger on it - it's so different to Major Minus, and I really do like Major Minus. But MTM... Chris' vocals aren't that brilliant, when the rest of the band comes in it's really low-fi (and not good), and then it becomes so underwhelming it's not funny.

And it sucks. If all of LP5 is like this, I am probably going to cry. Or at least be very depressed for a time. Because I have been waiting for this album for years. And if the songs are like this... D:

For me, this song is wildly mediocre compared to ETiAW and Major Minus.
Teardrop is something vastly different to what they have created previously and that's exciting.
The guitar parts on Major remind me of GPASUYF and a few other B-sides from the AROBTTH era
but this? it almost reminds me of the B-Side 'For you' only not as nicely executed.
I do kind of like chris' low vocals because it's not often he goes that low and you can hear every note vibrating throughout but as a whole, it's not the greatest, and that's probably why it's a B-Side.

Seriously. If Moving to Mars is a 10/10, what about The Scientist or Clocks? At least a 20/10.
Come on boys... Moving to Mars would be one of the worst Coldplay songs if it would be included in any previous Coldplay album, but after the ETDIAWF disaster we welcome this decent song as it would be the greatest song in the universe.
I hope none of the ETDIAWF EP tracks will be in the album. Charlie Brown is the only new song that worth that.

i was thinking about this the other day, and i have come to the conclusion that (for me, at least) Moving to Mars is sort of like what would happen if Prospekt's March and X&Y had a baby... which is cool with me. :wacky:

the WORST song I've heard in a long time, boring as hell, apsolute crap, but thats just me!


ok, after listening to it a couple more time, as much as I didn't want to do it I thought it best to give it a go, so now I think its one of the worst songs I've heard in a long time, not quite as boring as hell, but not far off it, pretty crap, and me changing my opinion, well thats just me!

definately represents the emptiness and loneliness of space, and the piano is absolutely beautiful. I gave it a ten because it shows the boys are still hanging to their roots, and its breathtaking too!

Wow. This song blew me away. I forgot where I was the first time I listened to it. It's magical.
Early in the song it reminded me of Gravity, which is one of my favourites, that I always cry to.
The part, where
"and I heard it on the radio
that one day we'll be living in the stars
and I heard it on a tv show
that somewhere up above and in my heart
they'll be tearing us apart
maybe moving us to mars"
is sung got me all teary.

At first listen I thought Chris' voice was way too deep in the beginning, but it's not so bad. Although, he will have trouble if he is going to sing it live, I'm afraid.
The light thrums you hear at 3:30 sound like those in Mew's Comforting Sounds.

The song is difficult for me to explain, really.
Oh, and I didn't rate it. I find it hard to do with most Coldplay songs, but it definitely gets a high grade in my book.

I just noticed something, although this may have been mentioned somewhere already.

I was just watching the Christmas Lights video (and although I noticed this before I didn't connect the dots until now that MTM was released)... the top of the piano says [something] Mars Theatre Electrique. I wonder if there's a connection.

They must really like Mars. :|

Actually, Chris' voice is always sexy, it's just more noticeable when it's lower.

When I first heard it, I heard a mumble - Chris's voice at the beginning. Not that that's a bad thing, I was just after listening to Major Minus so I didn't expect such a slow and quiet song :P

But, i have to admit I was blown away. The emotion is just... gah, wonderful. I really do love it, but not as much as Major Minus, I'm afraid.

Theatre Electrique? I think they changed their mind a little from Christmas Lights to Now, but who knows? 'Theatre Electrique' is a little hard to spell, but I wouldn't expect it to be the album title

It says "VAN? MARS • THEATRE ELECTRIQUE". No idea what it means. Ask Oracle about it

I kinda cringe when the falsetto part kicks in. Don't like it that much for the rest either. I'll rate it a 5 now, but I might laugh at that at a later point. (as in it might be too high, or too low)

Don't worry. You're not cringing. You're just getting chills from the amazing music! ;)

I felt bad not loving ETIAW, but still appreciated it because it was Coldplay after all. Felt a bit concerned that I may not "love" the new album...as I enjoyed VLV so much....but after hearing MTM....my fears have been wiped. Magic! Magic! Magic! Can't wait for LP5:wink3:

its very promising to me that MtM is a b-side. i would have been pleased to hear it
during my first Lp5 listen in the near future. i hope the new album is 11 or 12 songs. asuming that HLH, CB, PoC, ETIAW will be on it

9/10, I absolutely love the first half but I wish the second half was still aciustic.

I gave it 3. I don't like the song that much, the bit when the drums come in at first, the countdown section, Martin's voice once everything comes in, the harmony, the strings, unoriginal (in coldplay sense). The only thing I like is when it changes to F major (instead of F minor) and the Tierce de Pichertie (or whatever you call it) at the end.
I much prefer all the other songs from this era, especially Every Teardrop, Hurts LIke Heaven and Paradise.

It reminds me a lot of X & Y. I quite like it in the second half, but the first bit doesn't do it for me. I guess it's kind of the opposite to what fooby was saying...

i love this song. the solo...holy crap.

the part when the piano comes in and martin begins to sing instead of whisper..

if this was on MX and along with Major Minus instead of ETIAW or Paradise...i'd be a bit more reassured this would be their best album since A Rush of Blood...

i give it a 8/10 because the song still has a taste of an old coldplay.... well, you know if we look back to parachutes and a rush of blood to the head, chris always sounded like mellow and has a more melody not like what he has today as i think he has made a huge transition of coldplay's music and his voice improvement like more loooooud. :D

I love the lyrics on this one! "We won't see the earth again..." There's a sense of something magical that I can't quite put my finger on. The countdown idea was pretty original. "Seven, six, five, four, three" and I love the fact that you can hear Will's distinct voice in this one (which I think is a bit underrated; he should sing more!). I'd swap PoC for this on the new album!

Agree, has a Parachute and Rush sound. Song of melancholy, sadness. Outstanding. :nice: Wouldn't fit well on MX. Don't think.
