** Taken UpToEleven with the video for Up&Up, where they take the whole surreal factor to a whole another level, which includes Chris Martin and the band being absolute giants and lying on mountains and islands, a football match being played on a sponge, a volcano spewing popcorn, a boat travelling over New York, a plane dropping the solar system via parachute, horses galloping on water, a butterfly lying on a oil rig, dolphins swimming while a city is upside down above them, a man sunbathing on the moon, a turtle swimming in a New York subway station, two skaters skating on the second stage of a Saturn V rocket, a diver diving 30,000 feet in the bloody air, skiers skiing on a bed pillow, two planes flying either up or down with mountains above them and water below them, a man ironing on top of clouds, cars racing on the rings of Saturn, seals flying over New York, divers diving sideways off a building while walking sidways and a kid on a swing that is being suspended from ''the International Space Station''! [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs Were they high when they made this, or something?]]

* RefrainFromAssuming: "Adventure of a Lifetime" has commonly been referred to as "Alive Again", due to it being the main line of the chorus (the actual title [[NonAppearingTitle is never said in the song]]).

'''Coldplay''' is an acclaimed [[UsefulNotes/{{Britain}} British]] alternative rock group who, after several low-key releases, hit the big time in 2000 with the single "[[SignatureSong Yellow]]". The following album, ''Music/{{Parachutes}}'' (2000), debuted at number 1 in the UK, won a Grammy and has since gone multi-platinum worldwide. The follow-ups, ''Music/ARushOfBloodToTheHead'' (2002), and ''X&Y'' (2005), continued the commercial and critical success -- though they also gave the band a reputation for their songs sounding too similar (the singles "Speed of Sound" and "Clocks" being frequently singled out for comparison).

* EpicRocking: Subverted. They aren't exactly known for creating overly epic pieces. However, most of the tracks from ''A Rush of Blood to the Head'' (and atleast two from ''Parachutes'') exceed the five-minute timemark, with its TitleTrack nearly reaching six.

* EpicRocking: Subverted. They aren't exactly known for creating overly epic pieces. However, most of the tracks from ''A Rush of Blood to the Head'' (and atleast two from ''Parachutes'') exceed the five-minute timemark, with its TitleTrack nearly reaching six. B-side "Gravity" and "Up&Up" have also exceeded six minutes, and the "Lovers in Japan/Reign of Love" medley is almost seven (whereas "Chinese Sleep Chant" and "The Escapist", as hidden tracks, are considered separate to "Yes" and "Death and All His Friends" respectively).



* MinisculeRocking: Happens on several albums, both as standalone songs (such as the title track on ''Parachutes'' and Chris' piano solo "Postcards from Far Away" on ''Prospekt's March'') and ambient interludes (the title track, "M.M.I.X." and "A Hopeful Transmission" on ''Mylo Xyloto'').



* UncommonTime: The last part of "Death & All His Friends" and the chorus of "Glass of Water" are in 7/8.
