All right, looks like the "single" for Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall is actually a three-track EP...
Coldplay Line Up 'Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall' EP • News • exclaim.ca
1. Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall
2. Major Minus
3. Moving To Mars
Still no word on what this has to do with an album, if anything.

My understanding was that Moving to Mars was going to be iTunes only.

I guess they will be posting Major Minus in about half an hour? Cool.

Listening to the online radio stream of Major Minus now, and it sounds even better than it did live. This needs to be on the album.
EDIT: Here's a YouTube link.

Damn, that was an incredible song. That should have been the first single for the new album. A thousand times better than Teardrop.

Yeah, very promising song. It's got some attitude to it, much like Violet Hill, which I really liked as well.

Digging Major Minue enough... sort of a thrashier version of "Cemeteries of London", if that makes any sense.

I know the song has its detractors, but I don't really get this complaint about "Every Teardrop..."

It doesn't sound "dreary" or dirgey at all. To me it actually sounds pretty happy, bright, dancey, upbeat. It's totally cool if you don't like the song, it's just that your use of words to describe it don't seem to fit.

Anyway, I'll listen to the newer track here in a little bit.

Major Minus is definitely one of the best songs they've ever released. Love the energy and I do think it would've made an infinitely better single.

It's an infinitely better song, but that's like saying One Step Closer would have been a better first single than Vertigo. Does Major Minus have a hook?

The producers of the tracks most likely, or probably Chris Martin's quasi-vegetarian chef.

And for your information, Chris isn't really a vegetarian.

It'd sound good on the radio and does, I daresay, stick in my head more so that Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall. But I can't say I'm an expert, it just sounds like it would be.

Well, I mean, that's a bit like saying bread sticks to the roof of your mouth more often than arsenic: why would arsenic be in your mouth in the first place?
