Coldplay Love Songs List

My Universe

(with BTS)

Released in 2021 on the album Music Of The Spheres

A great song to play as a background song during cocktail hour or dinner. It is a song about a guy who thinks his girl is his whole world and brightens his days.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

And I (I) just want (just want) to put you first
And you (you), you are (you are) my universe
And you make my world light up inside

A Sky Full Of Stars

Released in 2014 on the album Ghost Stories

The song starts as a piano ballad but then turns into Coldplay’s first EDM hit. Makes a perfect dance song or recessional song. It is a song about giving yourself to the one you love.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

You’re a sky full of stars
Such a heavenly view
You’re such a heavenly view

A Message

Released in 2005 on the album X&Y

A Message is a song for lovers who don’t have a fairytale love relationship. If you have gone through tough times and are better together, then this is a song to tell your story. It is a song letting the listener know that you can accept love into your life and be with someone who loves you back.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

My song is love
My song is love I know
I’m on fire for you
Clearly, you don’t have to be alone

Us Against The World

Released in 2011 on the album Mylo Xyloto

A good song to show the oneness of the wedding couple. The song is about the struggles in life outside of the relationship and how it’s Us Against The World.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Through chaos as it swirls
It’s us against the world

The Scientist

Released in 2002 on the album A Rush of Blood to the Head

The song is about a man who gets too caught up in his work and neglects his lover and he wants to get back to giving her the love she deserves.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

I had to find you
Tell you I need you
Tell you I set you apart

Always In My Head

Released in 2014 on the album Ghost Stories

A song about a guy who cannot stop thinking about a girl and how she must be the one because of it.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

This, I guess
Is to tell you you’re chosen out from the rest

Reign Of Love

Released in 2014 on the album This Is Where I Leave You (Soundtrack)

A great song for the processional – the song playing as the bride walks down the aisle. The song is about love taking you over in every way and using it to get through life’s journey.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Reign of love
By the church, we’re waiting
Reign of love
My knees go praying

Parachutes

Released in 2000 on the album Parachutes

A short song if you want to accentuate a quick wedding micro-moment with a song. It is a song about telling someone that you love them and as a metaphor, you will weather any storm to be with them.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

I’ll be round
I’ll be loving you always
Always

Viva La Vida

Released in 2008 on the album Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends

Viva La Vida is Spanish for “Love Live Life”. Viva La Vida is Coldplay’s only song to reach the Billboard Hot 100. Probably the most recognized Coldplay song for those who are not Coldplay followers.

The song is an interpretation of King Louis’s last speech before his death and how he ruled but did not have his people following him at the end.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Once you’d gone, there was never
Never an honest word
And that was when I ruled the world

Magic

Released in 2014 on the album Ghost Stories

The song is about a couple who come together and fall apart. Not the perfect love song for weddings but it takes magic to bring them together.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Call it magic
Call it true
Call it magic
When I’m with you

Yellow

Released in 2000 on the album Parachutes

Yellow makes for a great processional, recessional, or ceremony accent song. It is a song about how everything in the world he loves is the color yellow which includes his lover.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

I came along
I wrote a song for you
And all the things you do
And it was called yellow

Fix You

Released in 2005 on the album X&Y

A song about a broken soul in a relationship and let them know to please come home so that you can mend them.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

High up above or down below
When you’re too in love to let it go
If you never try you’ll never know
Just what you’re worth

Sparks

Released in 2000 on the album Parachutes

A song to play for walking down the aisle. The song sings about dedicating yourself to the one you love.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

My heart is yours
It’s you that I hold on to
That’s what I do

Something Just Like This

(The Chainsmokers & Coldplay)

Released in 2017 on the album Memories…Do Not Open

A great mid-tempo song to play as a background song while guests are eating or during cocktail hour. The song is about not wanting a superhero or a fairytale romance, just someone that she can love and kiss every day.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

I’m not looking for somebody
With some superhuman gifts
Some superhero
Some fairytale bliss
Just something I can turn to
Somebody I can kiss
