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.

    A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
