Ghost Stories Live 2014 is the fourth live album and a concert film by the British alternative rock band Coldplay. The album, a live recorded version of the band's sixth studio album Ghost Stories, was released by Parlophone in the United Kingdom on 24 November 2014. A DVD from one of the "Ghost Stories" concerts that was filmed at Sony Studios, Los Angeles in March 2014, is included with the Live CD. The performance was previously shown on NBC, however it differs from the TV special as it only includes the performances of the songs from Ghost Stories and the NBC special only featured 6 songs from Ghost Stories and the previous hits, "Clocks", "Viva la Vida", and "Paradise". According to the band's official website, it was filmed by Grammy Award-nominated director Paul Dugdale, in a custom-built amphitheatre at Sony Studios, Los Angeles, the ground-breaking production sets the band's performance against stunning 360-degree and overhead imagery.
It has been nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Music Film category.

Coldplay retain the expansive sound palette of 2008’s Viva La Vida, bring in some dance-rock elements and up the energy level considerably on a futuristic concept album that finds them offering solace in an often scary and uncaring world (or, as Chris Martin elegantly states in “Up With the Birds,” this is music that provides “a spark in a sea of gray”). As usual with concept LPs from Ziggy Stardust and The Wall to American Idiot, it’s best to forget about any concrete narrative and just follow the emotional arc of the songs; ever the optimist, Chris Martin’s bleak post-Blade Runner dystopia seems to have a happy ending. Leadoff single “Every Tear is a Waterfall” – which includes a cutting Edge-style rhythm guitar assault – may just be the most glorious of many U2-ish arena anthems on the album. Likewise, while even the most mainstream Coldplay fans may see the appearance of leggy pop temptress Rihanna on “Princess of China” as an unsubtle grab at the rock-free global pop market, the constant presence of sonic guru Brian Eno helps keep alive their itchy rock links to the increasingly hermetic Radiohead. Coldplay did not approach this album casually; they know they’re now the world’s biggest rock band and made sure Mylo Xyloto cements their position at the top. To the band’s credit, it probably didn’t have to be this good to be just as successful. Mylo Xyloto is like a Christopher Nolan movie; it’s a creatively executed blockbuster that deserves its box office success.
