Prospekt's March

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Released as part of a Viva la Vida special edition and on its own as an EP -- thereby illustrating a concern for fans that's almost unheard of among these big-budget special editions -- Prospekt's March is an addendum to Coldplay's Eno-produced 2008 album, offering a little bit more of the same spacy thing. Often, it's a variation on what was on the album itself, as three of the eight songs here are remixes, none particularly different than the originals (not even Jay-Z's cameo on "Lost" feels sudden or surprising). Of those other five songs, "Postcards from Far Away" is just a small snippet of atmospheric keyboard, leaving this at a mere four tracks -- all ...

Of those other five songs, "Postcards from Far Away" is just a small snippet of atmospheric keyboard, leaving this at a mere four tracks -- all good, all holding their own with the main text of Viva la Vida. Best of these is the surging drama of "Glass of Water," which feels as if it could have fit neatly into the album itself, but "Rainy Day" has a nice percolating electronic beat along with simpatico staccato strings, and "Prospekt's March/Poppyfields" earns much of its portentousness through its latter section, all of which makes up for the slightly unfinished feel of "Now My Feet Won't Touch the Ground." None of this is major but it is enjoyable, worthwhile for the devoted -- and it's nice they can get it separately instead of plunking down cash yet again for a deluxe edition.

    Prospekt's March

    This is a great continuation of Colplay's most recent album Viva La Vida. The songs are so full of meaning and probably the most original stuff I've heard recently. I recommend it highly if you are a true Coldplay fan!

    a beautiful addition to viva la vida

    as a coldplay fan, of course i bought the recording. it is very well put together in the way of order of songs, presentation, and each song is wonderfully crafted. this cd is almost all of the songs left off of viva la vida. the one with a kylie menogue (no clue how to spell her name. sorry...) was decidedly left off. the jay-z collaboration was okay but not a showstopper. otherwise, i really enjoy this album. glass of water is on the top of my list of favorites and it was nice to hear what life in technicolour would have sounded if on the viva recording. this band has grown so much over the years and continue to get better. if you have not had a chance to see them live, do so. it is an experience like no other. enjoy prospekt's march! :)

    For Viva Fans, Why Not Prospekt's March?

    It consists of all the songs that didn't make it on Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends. Life In Technicolor, a song brilliant without lyrics is even better with words. Postcards From Far Away is a simple yet beautiful piano piece with such emotion the title just makes sense. Glass of Water is very much like the usual Coldplay tracks whereas Rainy Day is so different, it is almost unrecognizable in the beginning. Both are very enjoyable. The title track, Prospekt's March is darker. Chris's voice carries you through the whole song leaving you wanting more. Then you come to Lost+. To me, Jay Z''s rap wasn't anything special and was unnecessary. The Osaka Sun remix is basically the same song you know from the Viva album. Now My Feet Won't Touch The Ground concludes all the success of Viva La Vida just as Coldplay wanted it to. Prospekt's March did all it was suppose to for a Coldplay fan. I recommend it, along with Viva La Vida, to everyone.
