Coldplay – Prospekt’s March

“Prospekt’s March” is an EP follow up to “Viva La Vida.” While the latter is an excellent album, “Prospekt’s March” is good in its own right. The EP is mostly remixes, including a Jay-Z cameo on “Lost +,” but there are new songs that are a nice bonus for any Coldplay fan.

“Life In Technicolor II” is a really treat for fans who enjoyed the instrumental track “Life In Technicolor” on “Viva La Vida.”

“Life In Technicolor II” includes vocals and is 4:05 minutes long (almost double the length of the original track). The vocals add such a new dimension to an already great track.

New tracks include the 48 second instrumental “Postcards From Far Away,” “Glass Of Water,” “Rainy Day,” “Prospekt’s March/Poppyfields” and “Now My Feet Won’t Touch The Ground. ” The tracks feel like they could have stood next to any of the tracks on “Viva La Vida.”

“Now My Feet Won’t Touch The Ground” has a demo feel to it. Chris Martin’s voice almost sounds tinny against the simplistic strumming of the guitar. It is different from the spacey, electronic heavy produced sounds of the other tracks (both on “Viva La Vida” and this EP).
