Coldplay are a British rock band formed in London in 1996. They consist of vocalist and pianist Chris Martin, guitarist Jonny Buckland, bassist Guy Berryman, drummer Will Champion and creative director Phil Harvey. They met at University College London and began playing music together from 1996 to 1998, first calling themselves Pectoralz and then Starfish, and this time, they Embark on their music career to release this whooping track titled “Viva La Vida” which is here for your pleasing audience and Free MP3 Download on our platform, Mixloaded.com.

Revered as an essential rock song of the 2000s, “Viva La Vida” tells the story of a monarch who’s lost his kingdom. In another aspect, the song is also seen as a narrative on the French Revolution given the historical and biblical references in the lyrics. The instrumental is based around a string and piano background, led by an orchestral drum beat.

The title derives from the Spanish phrase “Long Live Life,” and takes its name from Frida Kahlo’s last painting before her death. During a March 2008 interview with Rolling Stone, frontman Chris Martin explained the reason for naming the song and album in honour of Kahlo:

She went through a lot of shit, of course, and then she started a big painting in her house that said ‘Viva la Vida.’ I just loved the boldness of it.

This song debuted to massive success and acclaim, peaking at number one on both the Billboard 100 and UK Singles Chart. Coldplay received several awards for the track, including Song of the Year at the Grammy Awards in February 2009.

The chorus has musical similarities to Joe Satriani’s instrumental piece, “If I Could Fly.” Satriani sued Coldplay for plagiarism—they settled out of court. The band Creaky Boards also accused Coldplay of taking the song’s melody from their record, “The Songs I Didn’t Write,” however, Coldplay denied the allegations.

Coldplay released two music videos for this song. Hype Williams made the official video, which premiered in August 2008, depicting the band against a backdrop of Eugène Delacroix’s painting, Liberty Leading the People. The alternate music video dropped alongside the first one but was directed by Anton Corbijn and starred Chris Martin as a king.

Coldplay – Viva La Vida Lyrics

[Verse 1: Chris Martin]
I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning, I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own

[Interlude]

[Verse 2: Chris Martin]
I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemies’ eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing
“Now the old king is dead, long live the king”
One minute, I held the key
Next, the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

[Chorus: Chris Martin]
I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringin’
Roman cavalry choirs are singin’
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can’t explain
Once you’d gone, there was never
Never an honest word
And that was when I ruled the world

[Interlude]

[Verse 3: Chris Martin]
It was the wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People couldn’t believe what I’d become
And revolutionaries wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string (Mmm, mmm)
Aw, who would ever wanna be king?

[Chorus: Chris Martin]
I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringin’
Roman cavalry choirs are singin’
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can’t explain
I know Saint Peter won’t call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

[Bridge: Brian Eno, Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland & Will Champion]
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh

[Chorus: Chris Martin, Brian Eno, Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland & Will Champion]
(Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh)
Hear Jerusalem bells a-ringin’
(Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh)
Roman cavalry choirs are singin’
(Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh)
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
(Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh)
My missionaries in a foreign field
(Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh)
For some reason I can’t explain
(Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh)
I know Saint Peter won’t call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

[Outro]
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm
Mmm, mmm.
