Mince Spies was a 2001 ChristmasEP released by British rock bandColdplay. It consists of two tracks recorded by the band with the Parlophone label with production help from Ken Nelson. It was released to the pre-Parachutes Coldplay fan club only and was limited to 1000 copies.  Because of its limited availability, it is the 2nd rarest Coldplay release behind the Safety EP.
Coldplay’s rendition of the holiday classic, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”  was also included on the 2002 compilation album, “Maybe This Christmas” which benefited the charitable activities of the Toys for Tots Foundation. 
This modern remake of the classic Christmas song is piano- driven,  with a very mellow pace  and tailor-fit for roasting chestnuts on an open fire.
