Sure. There are tons of bands that have covered [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Coldplay[/lastfm], but what we like best is when Coldplay covers other bands. The boys always lend their specific brand of expansive soft rock flair to just about every song.

Check out our list of the Top 10 Songs Coldplay Has Covered. Totally varied–just like Coldplay’s genre-transcending sound– it includes artists like [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Beatles[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Michael Jackson[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Smiths[/lastfm].

Want to see if they cover a song at their exclusive performance from the legendary stage of New York’s Ed Sullivan Theater for Live on Letterman?

Watch the entire concert live on Tuesday, September 20 at 8pm ET/ 5pm PT, right here. Presented by AT&T, rethink possible.

As if Coldplay wasn’t wistful (and color-oriented) enough, Chris Martin crooning lyrics like, “sometimes in a dream you appear/Outside under the purple sky/Diamonds in the snow sparkle/Our hearts were singing/It felt like Christmastime,” from The Pretenders’ ballad “2000 Miles” makes us feel all squishy inside.
