This is one of my favorite songs by Coldplay. Viva la Vida was actually jointly written by all of the group members. For those wondering, Viva la Vida literally translates to "long live life" and its lyrics contain many religious references.
My favorite part of this song is the chorus – the haunting melody combined with the excellent violin playing make it extremely memorable. The lead singer also has a very understated voice which fits this song perfectly – it doesn't get in the way of the melody which is a very good thing. I don't normally listen to this kind of music, but the melody is just so amazing that I made an exception.
