The band im in is playing a gig today. We're going to open with a cover of Yellow (followed by two originals). It's funny how the other members werent really Coldplay fans in the beginning, but ive slowly weaned them into fans. Anyways, wish us luck!

You ought to have stolen and brought it home!

I guess you must have been amazed then! Is your friend a Coldplay fan as well? :eyes:

Hahaha well I think she wouldn't invite me for a party again if I did that:p
I was very amazed! I knew she liked Coldplay but I didn't think she would have stuff like this at home;)

The sun was shining, shutters were up, pizza was delivered, but I saw no one. It was amazing to be on such hallowed ground and sit on THE BENCH and look at all the messages. Next time I'll take a white pen with me and add mine to the list.

I wonder what the band is up to. I read that Chris said in court (where he was testifying against a stalker) that he would be travelling to London on business and would not return until early May. Being in London 'on business' could mean seeing the other members of Coldplay. Perhaps they are going to perform at the Global Citizen Festival in Berlin on May 21st?

That's very interesting actually. This past weekend I had my first trip ever to London and of course I wanted to get a chance to visit The Bakery, not only to see the mythical place but also to deliver a letter in person and to see if I got lucky enough to meet the boys. When I get there there's a guy closing The Bakery. When he understood what I was doing there he said "Oh man I'm sorry, you missed them by five days". After that he asked me where I was from and my name and said "ok I'm going to make sure you get a response. I'm sorry that came from so far away to see them, they will be back in 10 days". Since that was on the past saturday, that means they would return around April 30th. That guy I meet was on a rush so I didn't get to know his name, but I have talked to other people and I think it might have been Rodie 42 actually! So if Chris is returning to London for business purposes plus the info I got that could mean they are back to the studio in full force!
This is the pic I took of The Bakery:

That's so exciting! Also I saw Guy said on Instagram that he can't go to the Tour Auto this year. It could definitely be for another reason but maybe it's since they're recording?

Met someone who said they kind of liked Coldplay and I asked them their favorite song expecting them to say Viva la Vida or Paradise or something and they said Green Eyes....I'm impressed

For a little over a year, I was pretty addicted to Coldplay, made a bunch of positive life changes and was able to really keep it together while I was regularly listening. Then around last fall I got overwhelmed with life and just stopped...I'm realizing now how messed up I've been since I've lost the positive force the music seemed to give me. I need to get back into it...

Good luck in getting back on track again. We believe in you and you can do this !!
Music (and by that I actually mean, Coldplay) helps me so much in my daily struggles with depression,I could not imagine my life without it.

Fun fact: I stumbled upon this when I was looking at the MX album that has been leaning against the window and I didn't touch for months. Today, it's exactly 8 years ago that Coldplay were still busy recording Moving To Mars! It's funny because this was kind of the last recording of the MX era songs that were put out back in 2011.

Hmm.. isn't it odd that this is the same timeline for Coldplay being back together in London this week?
Instruments and equipment were seen being rolled into the Beehive (their piano was just being tuned recently), Chris and Jonny were seen together in London on April 29 at the Champions League game, then they weren't spotted for a couple days (presumably in the studio), they take Sunday off as Guy is seen at a car show, then back to work Monday? :eyes:

Hi! I just created a account just to post this.
I recently made a little “story”, you can call it that way, and I mashed up all Coldplay songs (I just used the album songs and hidden tracks) into one text. I used some quotes that Chris said, but I linked the songs together, hope you like it.
Every song Is on CAPS
Everything apart from little quotes, is original

Life is always full of surprises, you never know what will happen next, and you will only be sure of one thing, that it’ll always be something special. Thing about everything that could happen because wonderful things exist, you just have stop for a minute and think that WHAT IF finally you find TRUE LOVE, something unexpected and beautiful. It can even be as majestic as a PRINCESS OF CHINA and with her you’ll always be able to hear the melody of a CHINESE SLEEP CHANT.

That moment is when you realize that the little things are what matter the most, and that even being on a STRAWBERRY SWING with ALL YOUR FRIENDS and having a little TALK will change your day and make it full of MAGIC.

And when you see those GREEN EYES you’ll remember that everyday with her is an AMAZING DAY and YES, sometimes it’s hard and it HURTS LIKE HEAVEN but in the end you always have to know that there is hope, and that EVERYTHING’S NOT LOST. And sometimes you might find TROUBLE but you must never give up, you just have to know that you have to keep fighting and just DON’T LET IT BREAK YOUR HEART and if you want to cry, cry because not all teardrops are bad, EVERY TEARDROP IS A WATERFALL and waterfalls are one of the most beautiful things that exist. But most importantly remember to remain calm and DON’T PANIC because we all know that LIFE IS FOR LIVING and make sure that you’ll always be happy because we live in a beautiful world. Remember that you always see DAYLIGHT when you wake up and see the beautiful skies of AMSTERDAM and when you hear the ticking of CLOCKS, just remember that you need to FLY ON. Sometimes you’ll hear A WHISPER, or a letter with just a few INK words that’ll give you A MESSAGE, A HOPEFUL TRANSMISSION, that’ll fill your GLASS OF WATER even on a RAINY DAY, that’ll be like a PARADISE because at the end GOD PUT A SMILE UPON YOUR FACE. And your journey to climb to the top of that VIOLET HILL, starts here. You will fall, and when you do, get back on your feet because those at the top will not go down easily so that’s why you must give it everything you’ve got. And when I finally cast my eyes upon the mountain , I’ll take a good look and I will soon realize that NOW MY FEET WON’T TOUCH THE GROUND and up there, where the UFO flies, up upon A SKY FULL OF STARS during MIDNIGHT I’ll be in a moment in life in which I’ll finally realize that she will be ALWAYS IN MY HEAD because at the end we all know that WE NEVER CHANGE. After all that you’ll go back to SQUARE ONE, so don’t feel sad and LOW because THE HARDEST PART of it all is the moment when you realize that you can fail, but you must never give up. And if you give up you’ll end up SWALLOWED IN THE SEA. And when the moment comes, you’ll end up in the CEMETERIES OF LONDON and there where graves surround you, you’ll wait TIL KINGDOM COME because you know that if you stay, MYLO XYLOTO will bring DEATH AND ALL HIS FRIENDS and all your hopes will be LOST! And in the other side of the world, the LOVERS IN JAPAN will send out one of their best SPIES to catch you. You’ll get blasted by the SPEED OF SOUND and you’ll go UP IN FLAMES and in the end you’ll be trapped in a TWISTED LOGIC. But O and me will fight against the mighty CHARLIE BROWN and his PROSPEKT’S MARCH inside the POPPYFIELDS and it’ll be just US AGAINST THE WORLD. After a great battle we will fall in a HIGH SPEED but then in a hurry, we will open our PARACHUTES and we’ll be safe until we end up in the middle of the OCEANS of earth and then, somewhere above the stars, she will receive your POSTCARDS FROM FAR AWAY. You’ll be UP WITH THE BIRDS but then you’ll fall into ANOTHER’S ARMS and you will recover because you never give up, then you’ll keep going UP & UP until everything your eyes can capture is YELLOW and high above, the BIRDS will start to sing the HYMN FOR THE WEEKEND and there, on the KALEIDOSCOPE , there’ll be just you, MAJOR MINUS, alone but persistent which will fight like an ARMY OF ONE until he’s beaten. And then you’ll finally be IN MY PLACE, on POLITIK, where you’ll hide behind the WHITE SHADOWS. At the end of everything you’ll get A RUSH OF BLOOD TO THE HEAD when you wake up and THE SCIENTIST will make his best effort to try to FIX YOU but he would not notice the WARNING SIGN of your X & Y and that’s why you must give it everything you’ve got. Finally you will EVERGLOW SPARKS full of joy that will release all the 42 colors of the COLOUR SPECTRUM, in that moment you’ll see your LIFE IN TECHNICOLOR because you had FUN and an ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME. The thing about always keeping A HEAD FULL OF DREAMS is that you always have wonderful ideas that make you SHIVER, and of course it’s one of the many magnificent perks of being part of the universe of MMIX.

All of us have a purpose. Be kind to each other. Everything is possible if you never give up, and if you believe in Love.

I miss this forum a lot.
And by that I mean the earlier days around 2015-2016 when it was at its most active during the time period I've witnessed. I know I didn't frequent it nearly as often as I used to in the past year or so, but I regret it. Remember when this place was full of life and a million games were running at the same time, and people were speculating about the upcoming LP7 or later talking about the tour ? I miss this SO MUCH.

That's funny because I miss the 2007-2008 days! Just became a huge fan and was gearing up for the release of Viva. MX was a good one too!

I can sympathize with both of you. It must have been incredible to observe and be a part of all the buzz and traffic on Coldplaying during its peak periods. It must have been truly massive and spectacular! I can kind of imagine what it might have looked like thanks to the posts that are floating around describing those great eras.

Even though I joined this community much later, there had been already threads about the LP8 or a new live album and many games being played. Thus, to me, back then it didn't seem that the forum was going through a depression or became less lively. I took it for granted. Now looking back, in my opinion the activity on the forum was decreasing justifiably as the AHFOD tour ended the month before and the whole LP7 + Kaleidoscope EP epoch had already been over or was nearing its finish. Afterwards, obviously the forum wasn't so frequented which I didn't fail to notice and found a little bit sorrowful to witness. Nevertheless, with more speculation about the next record, the announcement of the AHFOD film and the Butterfly Package, not to mention Los Unidades, we were observing another height of Coldplaying. That reminded me of what it looked like when I became a member of this lovely community. I was happy to see many users online here participating and discussing. That's why I can understand what @I ran away is on about. However, the sun must set to rise.

Here's to another fabulous period of Coldplaying!

I'm sorry for such a lengthy and unnecessary hindsight of mine.
