Prospekt's March is the sixth EP by British rock band Coldplay, initially released on 21 November 2008 in Europe and Japan, and worldwide the following week. It features several tracks left over from the studio sessions for Coldplay's fourth studio album, Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends. It is also available in the deluxe edition of Viva la Vida. This is their first EP since Remixes.
The cover features Eugène Delacroix's original painting Battle of Poitiers, similar to the cover art featured on Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends. On 5 November, Coldplay offered an exclusive preview of the EP via their Facebook application and through their website.
There were two singles that anchored the EP. The song "Glass of Water" entered the iTunes Top 100 songs and went on to be performed live by the band on 4Music. "Life in Technicolor II" began its existence in the charts at No. 90 in the UK Singles Chart despite not being released as an official single. It was later confirmed to be the EP's first single. It later peaked at No. 28 upon its physical release on 8 February 2009.

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.
