Prospekt's March

On Novemer 24th, Coldplay will grace the world with yet another release in 2008, as they release a new EP entitled Prospekt's March. It includes never-released material from the recording sessions of Viva la Vida and a bit of other stuff like remixes and such. It's eight tracks long and solid.

I myself have actually had the opportunity to listen to this little gem of a release. While it's not quite the brilliance of Viva la Vida, personally, I'd say it comes awfully close. Personal favorites include Life in Technicolor ii (a lyrics-added version of the instrumental Life in Technicolor), Glass of Water (a dramatic, powerful ballad), and Prospekt's March/Poppyfields (you'll just have to listen for yourself.)

That being said, if you'd like a listen before the actual release, head on over to this link where you can hear a full stream of the album.
