I have Prospekt's March, and I really enjoyed Viva quite alot... haven't given Prospekt's March a good listen yet I liked the alternate / full version of "Life in Technicolor" - liked it as an instrumental on the album but it works even better as a song. Still need to hear the rest of the EP now though...
I'm not sure I'd call myself a Coldplay completist or anything, I loved their first two albums for what they were - just solid earnest ballady type things - then X and was just kinda a bit faceless and boring... But they actually really impressed me by thinking out of their own box for Viva La Vida. It's a really solid recording and I hope they continue in the direction they are headed in.
Sure they aren't the beatles second coming, but they aren't the terrible band everyone seems to rag on them about...
