Following a very special first night in Seoul, there are high expectations for night 2.

If anything, I’d have to say the second night may have topped it. The band are clearly feeling enthused, as the setlist throws up a good few surprises. The B-stage gets Princess of China added at the last minute, while out on the C-stage, Warning Sign gets a rare outing.

It’s tricky to talk about crowds being special without it sounding like a line. The proof in this instance though, comes when sitting in the production office after the show. One by one, every crew-member that walks in makes comment on how incredible the crowd was this evening. I sit and chat with production co-ordinator Nicole and we come to the same conclusion – it’s almost as though tonight’s audience were specially designed for Coldplay.

They are such a perfect fit in so many ways. From their slightly understated and reserved entry into the arena, they blossom into a vibrant display of pure infectious joy. You could say there’s a parallel with the band’s development from early days to now – but perhaps that’s trying a little too hard.

Whatever, Seoul has been a completely unexpected high point of not just this Asia leg, but the whole tour – and that’s what’s important.

I would be absolutely staggered if the band never returned.

Welcome to the Coldplay Timeline

The Coldplay Timeline is a living history of the band, from their first rehearsal in 1998 to the present day. It allows you to relive their story via exclusive videos, audio, photos, blogs, interviews and handwritten notes.

There are two ways to use the site. You’ll begin at the chronological Timeline view, where you can scroll down through the years. Or, switch to Map view and see all the items with locations mapped out.

On both views, you can filter by Category and/or by Era – allowing you to search for, say, all of the video content from the X&Y era.

You can add to the Timeline too, by uploading your pictures from shows you’ve attended. We’ll also add more content over the coming days, weeks and months.

We really hope you enjoy exploring the Timeline. But if you spot any issues – or just want to give us some feedback – then drop us a line via the Contact form.
