7. 'Amsterdam'

One thing that separates Coldplay from most other arena-filling rock bands is Chris Martin's piano playing. It anchors some of their best-known songs in addition to deep cuts like "Amsterdam," the poignant ballad that closes out their second record, A Rush of Blood to the Head. In this video, you can watch the band close out their set at the V Festival in 2003 with a gorgeous, slow-burning rendition of the track.
