What's this? New Coldplay material so soon after the release of Viva La Vida? In fact, Prospekt's March is a collection of songs that were chiefly intended for the band's fourth album but which didn't get finished before the deadline. There are eight tracks in total, some new, some new-ish and a couple of re-workings of older material. Amongst the re-imaginings is a largely decorative Osaka Sun mix of "Lovers in Japan" and a version of "Lost" that includes an unlikely guest vocalist in the shape Jay-Z--incredibly, it seems to work. Of the new material, the piano interlude "Postcards from Far Away" is the shortest and most coruscating work, while "Life in Technicolor (II)" is larger but slightly less successful, adding only cursory elements to its predecessor on Viva La Vida. More alluring are the gigantic "Glass of Water", the experimental "Rainy Day" and the beautifully melancholy "Prospekt's March/Poppy Fields". A mixed bag then, but one that's generally more enjoyable than not. --Danny McKenna

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.

By Jago Wells VINE VOICE on 25 Nov. 2008

Coldplay release outtakes and re-mixes from Viva la Vida and surprise,surprise...it's not half bad. You could never in a million years award it five stars because some of the re-mixes are hardly noticably different from the originals. The much heralded rap version of 'lost' featuring Jay Z is a bit naff if truth be told. However,apart from this needless deviation into R&B territory,the rest of the album chunkers along in a manner expected of the Indie Pop kings.
Described as an 'EP'. Prospekts March is more an album really. After all, eight tracks offers itself as more 'Long Player' than 'extended player'. In my book anyway.

Okay, ignore the Lost version with Jay Z on it (why Jay Z?), and the Lovers In Japan mix which isn't too different from the original one, but the other songs?

They could easily fit on Viva La Vida (okay, maybe Rainy Day may be a bit latino for that album, but that doesn't mean to say it's bad). It's a great extension to Viva La Vida. The highlight for me however was Life In Technicolor II - the one with vocals. It's brilliant. So brilliant that it's one of my favourite Coldplay songs ever. Chris Martins voice has never suited a song so well. I mean, I would get Prospekts March just for that song! You can't go wrong with it.

There are three tracks on this EP that, if added to 'Viva La Vida' would have sealed Coldplay's place amongst the greats. The extended 'Life in Technicolour', 'Prospekt's March/Poppyfields' and 'Glass of Water' would have elevated 'VLV' to classic status. 'Prospekt's March/Poppyfields' could have fitted perfectly on 'Parachutes' or 'A Rush of Blood to the Head' and as such continues the thread from the band's earliest days until now. Whatever, this is an essential purchase and adds to the sum of music that Coldplay have created and also shows that after the misguided 'big music' of 'X & Y' , they have found the emotional whallop that made them so great in the first place.

I bought the double album, this with Viva la Vida, a couple of days ago and I am absolutely thrilled with it.

Life in Technicolor ii is brilliant, as is Glass of Water, Lost+, the Osaka Sun Remix etc. Well worth investing in.

With highly hit successful album `Viva la Vida or Death and all his friends' still on heavy rotation on my iPod. I, along with many other Coldplay fans must have wondered how long they would have to go without new material. Well the answer was within the same year! The album is clearly from the `Viva la Vida' sessions and is also shown through the similar cover art as well as the music. The question is, is it just the leftovers from `Viva la Vida' or have these songs narrowly missed out or just didn't fit.

Well the album can be split into two halves; you have the remixes then you have the new stuff. First of all I'll take you through the remixes. The album kicks off with `Life in Technicolor II' and it is exactly what it says on the tin. What I thought was great about `Life in Technicolor' off `Viva' was that it was an instrumental. Clearly though Martin couldn't keep quiet, making this basically `Life in Technicolor 1 plus vocals. While the instrumental works from the album. This opener works for this EP. It is clear during the `Viva' sessions Martin has changed his vocal style and it fits well with the songs especially laid on top of this track. Meanwhile `Lost +' sees Jay Z rap over the bridge section of the song. It is a small change to the song which works extremely well. Finally `Lovers in Japan (Osaka sun remix) is like playing a game of spot the difference with the original. It must be a really subtle change because it is very difficult to spot any sort of a difference with the original.

Now for the new stuff; you can see from `LIT2', Martin has a tough time staying quiet. So what was the compromise with this EP? That's right a 48 second instrumental, named `Postcards from far away'.
