Viva la Vida" is a song by British rock band Coldplay. It was written by all members of the band for their fourth album, Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends (2008), and was released as the second single from the album. On the album, this song segues directly into the next track, "Violet Hill".
Viva! Roxy Music was the first live Roxy Music album. It was released in August 1976 and was recorded at three venues in the United Kingdom between 1973 and 1975. The recordings were from the band's shows at the Glasgow Apollo in November 1973, Newcastle City Hall in October 1974 and the Wembley Empire Pool in October 1975. All songs written by Bryan Ferry except "Out of the Blue" by Ferry and Phil Manzanera. Bryan Ferry - vocals, keyboards.
In 2005, Coldplay released their third album, X&Y. In many ways, it was one of those collections where a band starts to sound exactly like everyone’s most basic idea of them. The subtle hints of something weirder that lingered at the edges of Parachutes and A Rush Of Blood To The Head, the element that allowed Coldplay to straddle the worlds of murky post-Britpop atmospheric rock and more straight-up mainstream pop, were mostly brushed away for their polished and often sappy third effort.

Viva La Vida definitely makes some departures from the bands usual formula, which happens to be one of the most commercially successful rock-pop blueprints of recent years. This album is totally different from what I heard before! The sound of "Viva La Vida" sounds to me like new wave and Radiohead's music blended together in perfect harmony along with ColdPlay's music and Chris Martin's vocals.
I used to rule the world Seas would rise when I gave the word Now in the morning I sleep alone Sweep the streets I used to own I used to roll the dice Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes Listen as the crowd would sing Now the old King is dead, long live the King One minute I. held the key Next the walls were closed on me And I discovered that my castles stand Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand . The name Viva La Vida derives from the Spanish phrase meaning Live the life. It takes its name from the painting by Mexican artist Frida Kahlo
