Today's feature album is by Chris Martin's Coldplay - it's their very successful 2008 album 'Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends'. Often referred to simply as 'Viva la Vida', it is Coldplay's fourth studio album. The album was named after a Spanish phrase that translates in English as "Live the life", although it can also be taken as "Long live life". Lyrically, the album contains references to love, life, death, and war.
