This Top 10 Coldplay Songs list was based on a survey we did at a recent Coldplay concert in New York City back in September of 2015. It was nice to travel back to the United States from England and see Coldplay perform in America after having seen them in London. The concert was held as part of the Global Citizen Festival . We figured why not ask those who love the band the most what they believe are the best Coldplay songs. Since this was a fan list, we will reserve comment and just give the important information about each song. Enjoy the list.
