Simply visit the website and download a free MP3 of the belting Thin White Duke remix of Viva La Vida (it’s available until January 5, 2009).

You can also watch a film of the band performing Jingle Bells with Spaced and Shaun of the Dead star Simon Pegg at one of December’s hugely successful, sold-out London O2 shows. The footage comes complete with silly Christmas headgear ahoy (apparently)!

By visiting the website, fans have the chance to win a fully signed copy by the band. If you’d like to win it, simply email your details to before January 5.

Coldplay will play a series of summer shows in the UK in 2009, with Jay-Z and Girls Aloud in support. Read more
