Common Sense Media says

Live version of 2002 song is solid but adds one curse word.

god put a smile upon your face cd single

making you feel like you could have been in the arena yourself. Families can talk about this version of the song. How does it compare to the original version? What are some of the cool and not-so-cool things about listening to a live recording and an album that was captured in the studio? Which of Coldplay's recordings do you like more -- live, or in the studio? Why?

Definitely a major highlight on the main album itself

As a Coldplay fanboy, this review may be slightly biased, but I do know how well it stacks up against some of Coldplay's other songs. And from what I know, this song is brilliant. The original studio version is amazing enough, with its incredibly slick tone. This version turns the original, much quieter song into some loud arena rock. The lead singer, Chris Martin, does use the word "fuck" twice, but in context its used to excite the audience and get them to interact with the performance. Overall, I think there's nothing wrong with this song and it really isn't that bad despite the slightly explicit language.
