These recordings are taken from the middle of the Parachutes campaign in a small theatre sized venue in Oslo, holding around 1,300 people. The tracklisting was as follows:
5. Everything’s Not Lost
This must actually be Coldplay’s first fully live release and in the current days of releasing a live film to accompany every tour, it often gets overlooked as a live document. Rather than being an “all singing – all dancing” Parachutes Tour Live! release, it is very understated. As a summing up of the simplicity and purity of the band at the time that seems to work all the better.
