Death Will Never Conquer
Band: Coldplay
Song: Death Will Never Conquer

////////////////
// The "talk" //
////////////////

This is a simple song by Coldplay, released on 14th July as a free download.
It was first played live during the Brixton Acadamy show, with Will on vocals
and the guitar in the background. However, on the studio recording, Chris is
singing, followed by a piano tune.

The song can be played with a capo on the 1st fret, or by using barré chords.
I will write both versions.

/////////////////
// Chords used //
/////////////////

Standard tuning - EADGBe

D# - x68886
G# - 466544
A# - 688766
Cm - x35543

D - xx0232
G - 320033
A - x02220
Bm - x24432

///////////
// Notes //
///////////

These are just the core chords (not necessarily correct) used in the song -
it might sound better if, at times, you play the D chords the same way you do
in "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" by Queen.

For those who don't know what I am talking about:

E|-2-3-2-|
B|-3-3-3-|
G|-2-2-2-|
D|-0-0-0-|
A|-x-x-x-|
E|-x-x-x-|

The same goes for the barré chord, except you do it on the second (B) string.

21.07.2008. (the second number is obviously the month :])
  Changed the D chord in the last two lines to Bm

About the artist behind Death Will Never Conquer:

Coldplay are an English alternative rock band formed in London in 1997. The group comprises vocalist/pianist/guitarist Chris Martin, lead guitarist Jonny Buckland, bassist Guy Berryman, and drummer/multi-instrumentalist Will Champion. Coldplay has been one of the most commercially successful bands of the new millennium, selling over 30 million albums. The band is also known for its hit singles, such as "Yellow", "Speed of Sound", the Grammy Award-winning "Clocks" and their latest single, "Viva La Vida".

Coldplay achieved worldwide fame with the release of their single "Yellow", followed by the success of their debut album, Parachutes (2000), which was nominated for the Mercury Prize. Both Parachutes and its follow-up, A Rush of Blood to the Head (2002), were released to commercial success; the latter was named NME's Album of the Year. X&Y (2005) received a generally positive reception. From December 2006, the band worked with producer Brian Eno on their fourth studio album, Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends, which was released on 12 June 2008.

Coldplay's early material was compared to acts such as Jeff Buckley,[1] U2, and Travis.[2] Since the release of Parachutes, Coldplay have drawn influence from other sources, including Echo and the Bunnymen[1] and George Harrison[3] on A Rush of Blood to the Head and Johnny Cash and Kraftwerk for X&Y.[4] Coldplay have been an active supporter of various social and political causes, such as Oxfam's Make Trade Fair campaign and Amnesty International. The group has also performed at various charity projects such as Band Aid 20, Live 8, and the Teenage Cancer Trust.[5]
