Mince Spies EP
To round off what had been a quite spectacular year, the band decided to give away a present to their most loyal fans. A thousand copies of this CD were made and distributed to members of the fan club which had been running since before the release of Parachutes. (And which has long since finished, giving way to the online fan community.)
The EP has a version of Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas along with a remix of Yellow.
It would be some years before Coldplay attempted their own Christmas song, but this was certainly very good training…
