Coldplay mixes it up with... Jay-Z?

Coldplay and Jay-Z have brought their artistic collaborations full circle.

In 2006, Chris Martin was featured on Jay-Z's album "Kingdom Come", and now Jay-Z will be featured on the Lost! EP, on a remix entitled Lost+. This is the band's third single off the album, and the EP will feature a live cut as well.

Along with this, Uncut and some other sites have reported on Coldplay's other fall/winter release, entitled Prospekt's March. The details are sparse and sometimes conflicting, but based on what was posted on Coldplay.com a while back, it looks like this EP is legit, and the track listing is locked in.

The EP will include B-sides and sessions that accumulated over the recording sessions for Viva La Vida (which if you were paying attention during the lead-up, was codenamed Prospekt). The EP can also be obtained in some sort of deluxe re-release of Viva, which will include the Prospekt tracks.


The Prospekt's March track listing is as follows:

Life in technicolor ii (Technicolor + Added Vocals)
Postcards from far away
Glass of water
Rainy day
Prospekt’s march/poppyfields
Lovers in japan (Osaka sun mix)
Now my feet won’t touch the ground

So to sum it all up:
-Lost! EP (including Jay-Z)
-Prospekt's March EP
-Viva/Prospekt Re(new)release
-Empty wallets for Coldplay fans this November.

In the coming weeks on the show, we're probably going to talk the Creaky Boards/Coldplay Viva La Vida controversy. We're hoping to play the two songs in question back to back, and let you decide if plagiarism took place. Stay tuned!


And finally... register to vote! Most final registration dates are coming up here in the next week or so!
