Video: Coldplay: Live on "The Daily Show"
Joining rare company as R.E.M on "The Colbert Report", and The White Stripes on "The Daily Show", Coldplay, whose Viva La Vida topped the charts pretty much everywhere it could (Frontman Chris Martin jokes about the band being popular in "The Axis of Evil"), performed not one, but two tracks from the aforementioned record on the Comedy Central poli-humor institution. Pleasantly, the songs performed are "42" and "Lost", which means that, between the free release of "Violet Hill", the ubiquitous ad campaigns for Apple, and these performances, fans have a good idea of what the album sounds like; if they didn't already, what with the leak, and buying the album in droves this past week.
The first video is pure performance, while the second video contains a brief interview, where Stewart asks the band that, since the band has played the show, "Are there any more mountains to climb"?
Viva La Vida is out now.
