Live 2003

This chronicle of Coldplay's 2003 Sydney, Australia, dates is as smooth and serious as the band itself. Employing nine cameras and switching between black and white and lush, extra-sharp color, this is a visually arresting document, though it does little to animate the band members themselves: However much you may like Chris Martin and Co., this is just not a group that you need to watch on DVD. When the band tries to supercharge "Yellow," the result is an awkward spectacle that suggests U2 without the charisma.
