Concert footage airing[edit]

In case there are any misconceptions, the concert slated as being a DVD release earlier in the year has been shown on BOTH SPANISH AND CANADIAN TELEVISION. Somebody is continually deleting my alterations even though it WAS DEFINITELY shown on Spanish television, according to the official website.

Whoever wrote this is an idiot. It was never aired on Spanish television according to the band manager.

Closing three sentences in first paragraph of history...[edit]

...which read:

"By 1997, Martin had also met then Classics student Tim Rice-Oxley. During a weekend on Virginia Water, they asked each other to play off their own songs on the piano. Martin, finding Rice-Oxley to be talented, asked him to be Coldplay's keyboard player but Rice-Oxley refused as his own band, Keane, was already active. Days after, this event would shape the second line-up of Keane and keep Coldplay's unaltered, thus leaving both bands as quartets.[7]"

contain information other than what appears in reference 7, which focuses on artist departures from the EMI label, and on speculation as to whether Coldplay would renew with EMI at a particular point in their history. (Martin meeting Rice-Oxley, weekend on Virgina Water, M's invitation to R-O to join Coldplay, R-O's decline of invitation and its relation to Keane—essentially none of these BLP facts are supported by the given reference.)

As well, the closing sentence, and in particular, the phrase "this event would shape the second line-up of Keane" has no clear meaning as it stands (what is a "second line-up"?), and is also not supported by the citation given. As such, tag placed and this note added. Sincerely, a music apprec. prof.

New EP[edit]

Chris confirmed in a interview that a new EP will be released, titled Kaleidoscope https://twitter.com/coldplay/status/800739286807171072 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Drewfer5 (talkcontribs) 18:57, 16 November 2016 (UTC)

Coldplay willing to perform in Dictatorships[edit]

It should be noted that the band Coldplay has no problems performing under the rule of military juntas/ dictatorships. They have just announced a concert in Bangkok, Thailand which is presently under a military dictatorship. Presently hundreds of people are facing trials under the Thai military junta and for criticizing the Thai royals. One many faces a trial for insulting the former king's pet dog.It might be worth creating a list of bands on Wikipedia who are willing to work with Dictators, abusive royals and other fascists. I'm sure there are many. NaturalEquality (talk) 03:25, 24 November 2016 (UTC)
