Editorial Reviews

Coldplay's Live 2012, is the band's first concert film / live album in nine years. It documents the group's acclaimed Mylo Xyloto world tour, which has been seen by more than three million people since it began in June 2011. Coldplay's 2012 outing came in at No. 1 on Billboard's latest ranking of the year's top-grossing tours. Featuring footage captured in Madrid, Paris, Los Angeles, Montreal and at the Glastonbury Festival, the film is a document of the band's
incredible and innovative shows that have thrilled fans in sold-out arenas and stadiums around the world. The film was directed by Paul Dugdale, who helmed Adele's Live at the Royal Albert Hall and The Prodigy's Worlds On Fire concert films.

2.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Concert - not captured well on film November 19, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Out of 500+ concerts, this year's tour by Coldplay blew me away and jumped into my top 5 immediately. I flew to Dallas to see the show and then to Tampa, it was just so amazing and I am not the world's biggest Coldplay fan. I cannot explain the euphoric feeling that was at these shows, especially with the lit up wristbands.

The Blu Ray is a complete let down. I do not understand why people make concert films now that don't focus on one frame more than 2 seconds. This Blu Ray could cause a seizure, as it basically snapshots of 2 seconds of different angles, audience shots and fireworks chained together for the length of the film. I wanted to see the band play and I do like seeing the audience reaction, along with the stage show. There were some amazing effects on this tour, and sadly you get to see tiny little clips here and there. There's just no sense of cohesion to this "film". I cannot get engaged with the band on stage because of the fast edits, nor can I get into the vibe of the audience for the same reason.

It's a shame, because this is probably one of the best ours that will ever grace a stadium. It could have been spectacular. I was wondering why this wasn't a 3D film as well because of the Stage Show and the Xylobands, but now I know. It would cause people to vomit if it was in 3D.

The CD that comes with it is very good which is why I even gave it two stars. Hopefully someday an actual cut of the concert that hasn't been butchered will appear somewhere.

Format:Blu-ray
Coldplay's first new live release since the Sidney, Australia, 2003 DVD is a welcome one, albeit a completely different type of live release. Where "Live 2003" was the entire night of an Australian show on the Rush of Blood to the Head tour, "Coldplay Live 2012" was shot at several venues and incorporates elements of a film/documentary instead, with five insightful interviews with the band members dotted throughout the "set list" as "intermissions".

High marks for the Blu-ray, which was released in scope format and will have black bars at the top and bottom of your screen even if you're watching on a 16:9 widescreen HDTV. This IS normal, no need to try and adjust your set. Coldplay released this in the cinemas for a short engagement and that is likely the reason behind the aspect ratio choice, although I would have welcomed it being released re-cut to 16:9 for home video release given that it is a concert film and no real loss would have occurred unlike what can happen with movies or TV shows. The cover incorrectly lists the aspect ratio as 16:9, but it is actually 2.39:1. Picture quality was stable throughout and it wasn't until the credits that I noticed a strange anomaly with some blurring. Luckily it's redundant as you don't really care about this part of the Blu-ray. The entire program looks good outside of this. Some Alexa cameras were used in the Stade footage which looks particularly clean, there is obviously a mix of different cameras used which means you'll see some grain here and there from the ones being shot on film. Thankfully EMI chose not to scrub this out with over-zealous digital noise reduction which would have further reduced the high frequency detail Blu-ray is capable of resolving.

The 5.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed November 22, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
I was there (in Paris, Stade de France with my Mimine (french fancy name given to my girlfriend)).

Nothing in this Blu-ray falls short of the amazing concert we attended to. I wonder what a guy like Steven Spielberg would have done with the filmed material. The image just doesn't capture the emotion of that early night of September. The editing is so jerky it must have been done by a teenager and the sound is muffled.

This is un insult to this amazingly creative band!

2.0 out of 5 stars Wow, what are you thinking December 14, 2012
By Dan55
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
First off, congrats to Jim Parsons the producer and Paul Dugdale the director for making one of the best bands in the world look and sound awful! This a master piece of how not to make a music video. Looks to me like Coldplay tried to make their version of U2's Rattle and Hum but forgot that picture and sound were important. The video is awful (there's that word again) and the sound washes out Chris Martin's vocals.... I could hardly wait for it to end it was so bad. And the endless 2 second video cuts are enough to make anyone want to turn off the DVD.

Coldplay, you owe me my money back on this one. U2 would never put out such a product.... even 20 years ago.

2.0 out of 5 stars Grainy Day November 21, 2012
By JAM
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Reading the other reviews, I keep seeing the word "Grainy". Only if I checked the reviews before blaming the media player software.

I've been spending the past hour downloading different blu ray media players. I thought it was all these players and it's a real shame that I won't be able to complain about the bad shots, cinematography and etc because I will not watch a blu-ray in what appears to be even less than the DVD standards of today.

I will keep this for the live CD, but this is the biggest disappointment as a Coldplay fan right next to the awful performance at this years Grammys, and the soon to be released MX comic series(looks plain stupid).

I do not recommend getting the blu-ray version(nor the DVD) and just get the live CD version. Though if grain is not a problem and you don't usually notice the mediocrity in capturing and encoding in what is supposed to be high-quality video then go for it.
