Prospekt's March is the EP companion to the multi-platinum seller that was Viva La Vida. There are 6 original songs and 2 remix that were not included in VLV. If you liked the tracks on VLV, you will love this EP: the original new songs follow the sam experimental side of VLV but retain the beautiful melodies we have become accustomed to enjoy from Coldplay. A quick track-by-track commentaries:

Life in Technicolor ii: This is the very same Life in Technicolor of VLV, but this time as a complete song with lyrics. It works and it rocks even harder!

Postcards From Far Away: A short but delightful snippet of piano playing from Mr Martin. It works as a nice interlude between songs.

Glass Of Water: Coldplay at their rockiest moment with a pwerful guitar riff from Johnny and a nod to Muse. A massive track I find myself hearing over and over again

Rainy Day: A very experimental track, a bit pop-esque but with a beautiful guitar melody and gorgeous a-la Viva La Vida violins in the chorus. A lovely mix of instruments that just works!

Prospekt's March: Soft , delicate , partly Parachute-like track with lovely lyrics and sweeping melodies. Unmissable.

Lost +: It is Lost with Jay-z contribution. If you ever thought Lost was a hip hop friendly song, this version will confirm it for you.

Lovers In Japan remix: It's just a bit rockier version of Lovers in Japan. It gives it an extra kick to an already gorgeous melody.

Now My Feet Won't Touch The Ground: Acoustic track with another nod to Johnny Cash and a guest appearance by a brass! A nice ending for the EP

All 6 original songs are definitely worth having for Coldplay fans or just Viva La Vida fans.

What I was inevitably hoping for when passing over my £6 for this EP is that it would contain some spectacular gem of Yellow or Viva La Vida proportions. Inevitably this is not the case - if Coldplay had another super-hit up their sleeves which just 'wasn't ready' for the album, they would have put the release date back. What we have here, then, does not contain any hit singles. But that doesn't make it remotely bad.

It does feel like an extension of Viva La Vida (the album) - the new songs have a similar feel to the most recent LP. I wonder if Glass of Water could have made it onto the album - perhaps as the last track - it has a set- or album-closing majesty about, much like the final track on Viva La Vida. Now My Feet Won't Touch The Ground is a lovely acoustic song, reminding very much of Kingdom Come, but also with a nod to Coldplay's pre-parachute songs. It is probably my highlight.

Of the songs which appear on Viva La Vida, only Life In Technicolor ii has any real value - the familiarity of the instrumental mixed with a wailing melody make for an excellent track, which I look forward to seeing live. Lost and Lovers In Japan provide nothing new in "remixed" form, but it is nice to have some familiar tracks to break up the new ones.

In all, I am enjoying Prospekt's March greatly. And I look forward to enjoying it more as time goes by. As is always the case with Coldplay's records, this is a grower, and the six or seven listens I've given it won't do it justice. But I can feel it coming.

And there aren't any bad tracks on here - it is Coldplay, after all... And it's not very expensive!

When they said that VLV would be experimental, assumptions jumped to Kid A style electronica. Of course Coldplay wern't going this route, and the album of sunny skies and a celebration of the worlds colours and cultures that followed recieved a very varied reception from critics and fans.

Well this is more of the same really, in the aspect that it broadens their pallet in ways VLV did but that these songs for one reason or another didn't fit on the actually CD.

Even so most of these songs would be welcome on the main album quality wise, and some fit thematically. VLV could have been an even stronger CD, but then this EP propably wouldn't be anywhere near as good in this case.

Opening with a lyrical perspecive of VLV's opener LIT, it shows Chris's voice at its most strong and clear yet. It all links back to a wonderful little line about 'feet not touching the ground' fantastic really since this song really does soar through the sky.

Following a 42 second piano peice comes Glass of Water, which is basically a joyfull rocky accompany peice to VLV's more dark epic 42. It's a traditional verse, chorus format and it propably is Coldplay's best rock song yet (its heavy!... really!... if you kick the bass up you'll realise)

Rainy Day is a weird one, after 2 seconds of standard Coldplay it transforms into something that sounds very Demon Day Gorrilaz. Martin's voice is distorted into an clattered whisper. Strings take the chorus to light and xylophone and a groovy bass line make this this biggest suprise of the album. Propably wouldn't fit on VLV, shame its a fantastic song that really shows what CP can achieve.

Prospekt's March, doesn't start off too promising but soon it picks up into an Everybody Hurts style winding incline of guitars.
