'Yellow' - Glastonbury, 2002

'Fix You' - Paris, 2012

The band apparently wrote this fantastic song for Chris Martin's ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow when she was struggling with the loss of her father. 'Fix You' first hit the airwaves in 2005 and it has been a Coldplay anthem ever since!

'Paradise' - The Paralympic Games Closing Ceremony, 2012

It took 10 weeks in the chart for this catchy tune to make it to number one, but there's nothing like hearing it sung live. Amazingly, it sold over 900,000 copies!

'Clocks' - Toronto, 2006

Released in 2003, 'Clocks' is one of Coldplay's best-selling singles and the third single released fro 'Rush of Blood to the Head' - arguably the band's best album. Oooh we sense a debate coming on... 

'Magic' - 'Later With Jools Holland', 2014

This great track was taken from the band's sixth studio album 'Ghost Stories' and the spooky video certainly grabbed everyone's attention. Check out the song sung live on TV in the video above. 

'Hymn for the Weekend' - The BRIT Awards, 2016

Okay, so this might not be one of Coldplay's classic tracks, but it does feature vocals from Beyoncé so you just know it is going to be good. They even performed the track live at this year's BRIT Awards...

'The Scientist' - Madrid, 2011

Grab your tissues folks because this is a weepy one! 'The Scientist' is one of Coldplay's most emotional tracks and it has remained a fan favourite since its release in 2002. 

'Every Tear Drop is a Waterfall' - Germany, 2011

Not only was this one of the first times the band had ever played this song live, but it also started raining mid-song making the experience even more memorable for the massive crowd. Taken from the band's tricky to pronounce 2011 album Mylo Xyloto, this track is certainly one of our faves.
