    Life In Technicolor is the best concert and album opener, but the latter by a smaller shot. It certainly lives up to it's title, is instrumental and builds up. Politik opens smashing then quites down and that wouldn't have worked well on the Viva tour...amazing live though, just a little darker, not as pleasing as Life In Technicolor, not as colorful.
    Square One is a lot better on X&Y than live, as the case with many X&Y songs considering the instrumentation and atmosphere.

    Bottomline: Life In Technicolor is the perfect intro (well, at least for me :rolleyes:)

    No, the best gig opener they have is Politik, because when at the beginning begins to play Politik I understand that it is a 100% Coldplay concert and when a gig begins with sounds of LIT, it tells that we will see Brian Eno experiments above Coldplay

    I've changed my mind on this, probably because I saw LiT open so many gigs last year and the year before...and then we have the same song (but with lyrics) closing the set. Remembering Brixton, I think Square One's the best opener still, such a shame they don't play it (or so many songs off x&y) anymore. And GPaSUYF not full version - an absolute travesty! We get Billie Jean instead of White Shadows, A Message, Don't Panic, Trouble, etc etc etc. What next, a harmonica-only version of Politik?!!

    Life in Technicolor is great as an opener. :)

    Mainly though, I just wanted to put in a word for Square One. I LOVE the countdown thing they do and how they sync that with the song and the lights. And lyrically, Square One is the closest thing to the well...beginning.

    This actually made ma thinking hard. It is obviously a perfect opener,personally it brought tears in my eyes and I dare to say it is better than Politik as opener (not a better song of course), but I believe their number one opener spot for me is MX/Hurts Like Heaven.
