The 10 Best Coldplay Covers

By Scott Lapatine / October 26, 2011

Did you know Coldplay’s Mylo Xyloto came out this week? The band played Letterman and Colbert and Today and Jools and Ellen and we threw a party in their honor. The launch celebration continues tonight in a Anton Corbijn-directed Vevo webcast from Madrid’s Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas beginning at 4PM EST. Since the anticipation is killing us, we thought now would be a good time to compile ten of the most relistenable versions of the band’s sentimental megahits, of which there have been a lot

10 Pet Shop Boys – “Viva La Vida”/”Domino Dancing”

09 Scala & Kolacny Brothers – “Yellow”

08 Ellie Goulding – “Don’t Panic”

07 Alicia Keys – “Clocks”

06 Noah & The Whale – “Paradise”

05 Weezer – “Viva La Vida”

04 Robyn – “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall”

03 Willie Nelson – “The Scientist”

02 Mark Ronson (Feat. Daptone Horns) – “God Put A Smile Upon Your Face”

01 Aimee Mann – “The Scientist”

Apologies to Avril Lavigne, Mike Posner, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, U2, Natasha Bedingfield, Sara Bareilles, Little Big Town, the Kooks, Pixie Lott, Solange, Mike Gordon, et al. That Noah & The Whale cover is two days old, btw. So who did I miss?

BONUS: Titus Andronicus – “In My Place”
