Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends, often referred to as simply Viva la Vida, is the fourth studio album by British rock band Coldplay, released on 12 June 2008 on the Parlophone label. The album was named after a Spanish phrase that best translates into English as "Long live life". Lyrically, the album contains references to love, life, death and war.

Recording sessions for the album took place during June 2007 to April 2008 and featured production by Jon Hopkins, Rik Simpson, Markus Dravs, and Brian Eno. The album was Coldplay's first to be produced by Eno, and also their first album to not be produced by long-time Coldplay producer, Ken Nelson. The band forced themselves to explore new styles, as Eno required every song on the album to sound different.[citation needed] Development of the album delayed the release date several times. The album cover of Viva la Vida is the painting Liberty Leading the People by Eugène Delacroix.

Viva la Vida was both a critical and commercial success. Five songs were released in promotion of the album; "Violet Hill" and "Viva la Vida" in May 2008, "Lovers in Japan" and "Lost!" in November 2008, and "Strawberry Swing" in September 2009. "Viva la Vida" became the band's first song to reach number one in both the United States and the United Kingdom. It won Best Rock Album at the 2009 Grammy Awards and was also nominated for Album of the Year. It was the best selling album of 2008.[1] By 2011, the album had sold more than 10 million copies.[2] Viva la Vida was re-released on 25 November 2008 in a deluxe edition containing the original album and the Prospekt's March EP, which contained another hit, "Life in Technicolor II".


In October 2006, two weeks after bass guitarist Guy Berryman welcomed his first daughter, which makes him the third Coldplay member to have a child, reports circulated that the band were taking a five-year hiatus. The new baby, and the fact that Coldplay had no touring or recording schedule at the time, had fans wondering if the band's new album would not be released until 2010. Dispelling such reports, Ambrosia Healy, spokesperson to Capitol Records, sent an e-mail message to MTV that there was no self-imposed hiatus. However, Healy clarified that Coldplay was indeed "enjoying a much-deserved break", and there was no timetable for the follow-up to the band's third studio album, X&Y.[3]

Work on the album began in November 2006, only being interrupted by the Latin America Tour in March 2007.[4]

Ambient musician and English record producer Brian Eno produced the album.[5] Coldplay moved to "The Bakery", after finishing up their Latin American Tour, building a studio there. The songs written during their time at the studio are lyrically "much more abstract, much more visual than before", and musically "less straight-forward, more oblique".[6] Additionally, Martin wanted to make a vocal transition from his trademark falsetto to a lower register.[7] This is explored in "Yes", where the main characteristic of the Velvet Underground-inspired song is the lowest vocals Chris Martin ever recorded – this was suggested by the producer Brian Eno, to make every single song sound different. The band's drummer Will Champion said in an interview for MTV: "One of the main things we tried to focus on with this record is changing vocal identities, because Chris has a very recognizable voice."[8] Coldplay sparked an interest at Hispanic influences after having recorded in churches and in Spanish-speaking countries such as in Mexico in North America and Spain in Europe,[9] such as Barcelona.[10] However, it was stressed that the influence was not in any specific sound but a general feel to the songs taken as a whole. On their website, the band also described taking acoustic guitars and basic recording equipment to churches and experimenting with particular sounds.[citation needed]

Throughout the recording of the album, Coldplay communicated to fans through their website. "Famous Old Painters" and "Glass of Water" were written in late 2007 and they were considering both tracks for the album, but were not well received by the producers though the latter was added to the finalized Prospekt's March extended play track listing instead.[11] The album was delayed further, but a December 2007 post gave hints that the recording stage was nearly finished. The article was signed "Prospekt", strengthening rumours that this would be the album's title. While the band completed two more songs ("Lovers in Japan" and "Strawberry Swing"), they denied that the album was called "Prospekt".[11] Martin revealed he had been reading many Charles Dickens novels during the recording process which may have contributed to the strong visual imagery on such tracks as "Violet Hill" and "Cemeteries of London". In an interview for the Latin American TV channel Boomerang in 2010 Chris said that a big inspiration for the record was the book Les Misérables, which can be noted by the French revolution themes on "Viva La Vida" for example.[12]

When asked about why "Lovers in Japan" had an additional track, bassist Guy Berryman explained that the band couldn't make up their minds, because they had discussed that they did not want an extra song on the album, and instead they wanted to keep the album concise with a total of ten tracks (and an intended length of under 42 minutes).[11] Champion followed with, "We just preferred to have less titles and more stuff. The album as a whole has got the most on it, but it’s the shortest. We wanted to make it almost impossible for you to not listen to it all in one go."[11] In addition, vocalist Chris Martin revealed that the band had always wanted a song title which was two in one. He added that the reason for having two titles in the track listing of Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends was due to American singer-songwriter Justin Timberlake doing it for his last album, FutureSex/LoveSounds (2006).[13]

The violinist Davide Rossi contributed with Coldplay to record strings on his acoustic and electric violin (the latter being capable to reach notes as low as the upright bass, thus recreating a full orchestra) throughout the album. His strings are featured in six songs: Viva la Vida (the song in which his strings are the most used), Violet Hill, Life In Technicolor, 42, Yes and Strawberry Swing. Some of the songs they recorded with Rossi didn't make the cut for the album but were released on the Prospekt's March EP.

On 18 July 2009, two early demos from the Viva la Vida recording sessions leaked onto the Internet: the previously unheard "Bloodless Revolution" and a very early version of Viva la Vida single "Lovers in Japan". A day later another demo, called "St. Stephen" appeared online.[14] On 20 July 2009, six more demos were leaked: "The Fall of Man", "The Man Who Swears", "The Man Who Swears II" (actually just the second half of "The Man Who Swears"), "First Steps", "Loveless" and "Goodbye and Goodnight".[citation needed] Other three left off tracks were leaked later into the internet, an instrumental of "Lukas", an unreleased song given to Natalie Imbruglia, "Solid Ground (Until The Water Floats Over)", a song written and performed live in 2006, and an instrumental of "Famous Old Painters".[citation needed]

Composition and themes

"Viva la Vida" is a rock[15] album, and is more specifically described as alternative rock,[16][17] art rock,[18][19][20][21] pop rock,[22] indie pop[23] and art pop.[24][25] It features influences of dream pop, art pop and alternative rock.[26]

Musically, Viva la Vida contrasts with their previous albums. The title track uses an orchestra, while "Lovers in Japan" features a honky-tonk piano. "Lost!" is influenced by tribal music, whereas "Strawberry Swing" incorporates Afropop music. Martin described Viva la Vida as a new direction for Coldplay: a change from their past three albums, which they have referred to as a "trilogy".[27] He said the album featured less falsetto as he allowed his voice's lower register to take precedence.[27] Some songs, such as "Violet Hill", contain distorted guitar riffs and bluesy undertones.[27]

The album contains an array of different themes such as love, war, and revolutions. Unlike their previous releases it has a more universal approach, it deals less with personal problems and more with issues of humanity. Songs like "Life in Technicolor II" (which didn't make it to the final track list) "Violet Hill" and "Death and All His Friends" talk about war and politics. Martin stated the lyrics of "Violet Hill" were a commentary on Fox News.[28][29] "Violet Hill" also is the first anti-war protest song from the band.[30][31] Other songs, such as the double track "Lovers in Japan/Reign of Love" and "Yes" are about love and desire.

Revolutionary themes are also an important part of the album and its promotion.[citation needed] Coldplay used customized French revolutionary costumes through the Viva La Vida Tour and on the videos produced for the album's singles.[32] Chris Martin stated that a big inspiration for the album was the book Les Miserables by Victor Hugo.[33]

The work of the Beatles is apparent as an inspiration throughout the album. For instance, the song "Violet Hill" references the Beatles album Abbey Road (1969), borrowing its rhythm from the Beatles. The song is named for a road which adjoins Abbey Road in London.[34]


Some of the paintings produced during the creation of the album's artwork were later used on the Viva la Vida Tour screens.

The artwork for Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends was designed by Coldplay and Tappin Gofton; the latter designed the X&Y cover three years earlier. The design style for the album took months to be completed; it was initially developed from a set of large-scale sketches and paintings of expressive typo. Lyrics and song titles were boldly painted across old maps, books, copies of old paintings, newspapers and various sorts of second-hand things. The final work was photographed and later some additional typography was added by computer.[35]

Viva la Vida takes its artwork from Eugène Delacroix's 1830 painting Liberty Leading the People.

Almost all tracks from the album and the Prospekt's March EP have one or more graphic images. On the album's booklet there are nine paintings made by the band. The first is a blue map of Brazil that includes part of the lyrics from "Glass of Water" painted in white. However, the image was later reworked and used as the artwork for the "Lost!" single cover. The second painting on the booklet illustrates the song "42". The image consists of part of the song's composition written in a red background, with a black stripe covering the centre. The design for "Cemeteries of London" contains an illustration of London, the song's title and a messy violet background. A portion of the lyrics is used on the top of it. The visual design for "Reign of Love" has its lyrics drawn on a green background. In the middle of the booklet, most of the lyrics of the album are shown amidst an unrecognizable object. The artwork for "Yes" consists of a ripped heart, and a line from the song, "Lord lead me not into temptation". The painting next to the song's artwork contains lyrics from "Viva la Vida" painted in black on a blue background. The artwork for "Death and All His Friends" was made with scissors and paper. Lyrics for the song appear in the design. The last page in the booklet is simple: a Roman numeral of the number 7 painted in red and green on a yellow background.[36] Some of the paintings were shown on a screen during the Viva La Vida world tour, or used on big balloons inside of the venues.[37]

There were three covers for the album. The front cover for the standard edition is a painting by Eugène Delacroix, entitled Liberty Leading the People, which was slightly altered for the cover by using a white paint brush to draw "VIVA LA VIDA".[36] The Prospekt's March Edition cover uses the same words again, but painted in gold and bigger, on a plain black background. The cover for the Prospekt's March EP included another Eugène Delacroix painting (Battle of Poitiers), and had "Prospekt's March" drawn across the painting similarly to how "Viva La Vida" was drawn across Liberty Leading the People for the standard album cover.[38] The cover used for the Asian Tour edition, has the word "VIVA" painted in red and black stripes against a white background,[39] this same painting was used as the home page for the official Coldplay website during a period, it was created by the band and painted by the drummer Will Champion on a wall at the studio called The Bakery.[40]

Release and promotion

In a Rolling Stone magazine interview, vocalist Chris Martin announced the album's release date and its title, Viva la Vida, which is a Spanish phrase that translates into English as "long live life".[41] It takes its name from a painting by Frida Kahlo, an acclaimed 20th century Mexican artist.[42] The album cover art is an 1830 painting by Eugène Delacroix titled Liberty Leading the People. On 10 April 2008, a new journal entry appeared on the band's website announcing the track list and release date, as well as hinting at new tracks to be issued before the album's release. "Violet Hill" was confirmed as the first single from Viva la Vida, with a release date of 5 May. In May 2008, Coldplay featured in an advertisement for Apple's iTunes with the song "Viva la Vida".

The band's official website was updated in late April to reveal the official Viva la Vida artwork as well as a free release of the single "Violet Hill", which became available for download for one week from 29 April 2008.[43] The album was leaked around 5 June and the band decided to make the album available to stream via their Myspace profile from 8:30 pm WEST on 6 June. On 25 June 2008, the band became the third band ever to perform on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, performing "42" and "Lost!".[44] On 27 June at 7:00 am EDT, Coldplay began a Today Show, outdoor, live performance on the streets outside of Rockefeller Plaza, New York.[45] The band performed on the Late Show with David Letterman on 30 June and on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on 17 July.

In August 2008, Coldplay announced they would be releasing an EP, Prospekt's March, consisting of unreleased material from the Viva la Vida recording sessions.[46] The album was re-released on 25 November 2008 in a deluxe edition, titled Viva la Vida – Prospekt's March Edition. It contains tracks from the original album and Prospekt's March.[47]

The stage setup for the Viva la Vida Tour consisted of a stripped down main stage and two catwalks; Coldplay also performed amongst audience members at the back of venues in a special acoustic set.[48] Instead of a giant video screen on-stage, the band opted for six hanging giant lightbulbs that displayed images and closeups.[48] The band started the tour playing a concert at the Brixton Academy and free shows at Madison Square Garden on 23 June, and ended the tour in Barcelona. The tour ended in March 2010 at Latin America and consisted of 172 concerts.[48]

Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends has received generally positive reviews from critics. According to review aggregator website Metacritic, the album received an average critic score of 72 out of 100, based on 32 reviews.[49] Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic stated, "They demonstrate a focused concentration throughout this tight album – it's only 47 minutes yet covers more ground than X&Y and arguably A Rush of Blood to the Head – that turns Viva la Vida into something quietly satisfying."[50] Chris Willman of Entertainment Weekly magazine rated the album "A-" and called it their best album,[52] while Alexis Petridis of The Guardian, however, wrote a mixed review explaining "Viva la Vida's mild tinkering with the formula represents a failure of imagination: perhaps it's hard to think outside the box when the box is the size of the Las Vegas MGM Grand Garden Arena. Equally, however, there's a genuine conviction about its contents, a huge advance both on its predecessor and their legion of imitators."[53] Will Hermes of Rolling Stone magazine wrote that "Coldplay's desire to unite fans around the world with an entertainment they can all relate to is the band's strength, and a worthy goal. But on Viva la Vida, a record that wants to make strong statements, it's also a weakness. Sometimes, to say what needs to be said, you need to risk pissing people off."[58] Melodic magazine's critic Kaj Roth gave the album 4/5 and felt that "the typical Coldplay trademark is there too with beautiful atmospheric melodies that will embrace the heart".[60] Spin magazine's critic Mikael Wood said in a positive review of the album, "For all of Coldplay's experimentation, though, there's no doubting that Viva la Vida, with its sturdy melodies and universal themes – think love, war and peace – is an album meant to connect with the masses (arenas have been built for less than the climax of "Death and All His Friends"). The band's triumph lies in how exciting they make that prospect seem".[59] IGN gave the album 9.3/10[61] and Q said "...So some habits die hard, but on every other level Viva La an emphatic success...radical in its own measured way but easy to embrace..." Robert Christgau gave it a one-star honorable mention ((1-star Honorable Mention)), saying, "Applying all his powers, Chris Martin successfully dilutes Radiohead, with—what else?--pleasant results."[62]

The album won the Grammy Award for Best Rock Album at the 2009 Grammy Awards.[63] It appeared in several year end publications' Best Albums of 2008 list including New York Post (Number 1)[64] Rolling Stone (Number 7),[65] Q (Number 3),[66] Spin (Number 9),[67] Entertainment Weekly (Number 6), and Billboard (Number 6).[68][69][70] Also, despite giving the album three stars out of five in The Times,[71] Pete Paphides admitted in December 2008 that he was wrong to give it this score and had in fact become his favourite album of the year.[72] Conversely, NME nominated the album for worst Album at the 2009 NME Awards, despite awarding it 8/10.[73]

The album was successful around the world. In its first week of release it debuted at number one in 36 countries.[74] In the United Kingdom, the album sold 125,000 copies in its first day of release and 302,074 in three days, debuting at number one.[75] In its second week it sold another 198,000, achieving a platinum certification.[74] The album sold over 500,000 copies in 10 days since its release, beating the first week UK sales of Coldplay's third album, X&Y.[74] As of June 2016, the album had sold 1,480,000 copies in the UK.[76] The album debuted with sales of 41,041 copies in Australia[77] and has since been certified 4x platinum.[78] In Canada, the album debuted at No. 1 on the Canadian Albums Chart, selling 90,000 copies in its first week.[79] The album would remain at the top of the chart for five consecutive weeks, selling 176,000 copies in Canada within the first month.[80] The album has been certified five-times platinum by the Canadian Recording Industry Association (CRIA).[81]

In the United States, it sold 316,000 copies in its first day, and 720,000 in its first week of release,[82] holding down the number one spot for two weeks, and nearly equalling X&Y's first week sales of 737,000.[83] Viva la Vida has been certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for a shipment of over two million copies.[84] Viva la Vida was at one time the most paid-for downloaded album of all time, with over 702,000 downloads.[85][86][87] By the end of 2008, Viva la Vida had sold total 2,144,000 copies, making it the second top-selling album in the United States.[88][89] As of August 2011, the album had sold 2.8 million copies in the US.[90] Globally, it was the best selling album of 2008.[91]

Plagiarism allegations

Coldplay were first accused of plagiarism of "The Songs I Didn't Write" by American alternative band Creaky Boards, for the melody of "Viva la Vida".[92] Creaky Boards' band member Andrew Hoepfner claimed that Martin had heard them playing the song at a live show in October 2007.[93] The band released a video clip, in which it compares sections of both songs.[93] Coldplay denied the claim. Band spokesman Murray Chambers said Martin was working in AIR Studios in London at that time, having checked the singer's diary.[94] In addition, Coldplay had recorded a demo version of "Viva la Vida" in March 2007, long before Creaky Boards performed it live in October later that year.[93] Creaky Boards later retracted the accusations and speculated that both songs may have been inspired by the video game The Legend of Zelda.[94]

On 4 December 2008, American guitarist Joe Satriani filed a copyright infringement suit against Coldplay in Los Angeles.[95][96] The suit claims that "Viva la Vida" incorporates "substantial, original portions" of his instrumental track "If I Could Fly" from his 2004 album Is There Love in Space?[97] The band has denied the allegation, saying the similarities were "entirely coincidental".[98] On 14 September 2009, the case was dismissed by the California Central District Court, with both parties potentially agreeing to an out-of-court settlement.[99]

In May 2009, Yusuf Islam stated that the song is very similar to his song "Foreigner Suite", recorded under his former stage name, Cat Stevens. He said "My son brought it to my attention and said: 'Doesn't that sound like 'Foreigner Suite?'"[100] Islam said that any legal action he might take "depends on how well Satriani does."[100] Coldplay drummer Will Champion denied the claim, stating, "We're confident we haven't done anything wrong."[101] In June 2009, Islam later said, "They did copy my song but I don't think they did it on purpose", adding, "I don't want them to think I am angry with them. I'd love to sit down and have a cup of tea with them and let them know it's okay."[102]

In a documentary for Sveriges Television (2011) American music professor Dr. Lawrence Ferrara showed that the melody structures of "Viva La Vida", "If I Could Fly" and "Foreigner Suite" were very similar to the composition "Se tu m'ami" by the Italian composer Giovanni Battista Pergolesi, who died in 1736. "Obviously this is a work that we would call in the 'public domain'", Dr. Ferrara said.[103]

Chris Martin once said that the plagiarism allegations were inspiring him and added: "If everyone's trying to take away our best song, then we'd better write 25 better ones!"[104] Will Champion has also talked about the accusation saying, "For some reason, God only knows why, the successful songs seem to be the ones that are accused of being stolen."[105]
