This is a joke right?! The two songs couldn't be much more different?!
I get the feeling that Coldplay are worried about a repeat of the Viva La Vida lawsuit and are subsequently listing songs that sound only remotely similar as samples (not that I think Driven By You and UWTB are at all similar).

literally on the booklet
'Up With the Birds contains backing vocals by Juanita Stein and a sample from Driven By You by Brian May.It also includes a lyrical sample from Anthem by Leonard Cohen used by permission of Sony'

I actually tortured myself by listening to the entire song "Driven By You", and I didn't even find out where the sample came from, my efforts were in vain...
@Dan N6: That's a possibility. They don't take any chances.

Don't make a fuss. "Driven By You" is a good song.
The samples are probably these "Ohhhhhhs".
The first time it appears after "it's so hard to just go away".
