    We've known for a while that Coldplay has been tailoring a follow-up to Viva la Vida. Their new single, "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall", listens like an extension of their last album, while possibly borrowing part of its chord progression from Peter Allen's "I Go to Rio". The tune is catchy, invariably imbued with pop, and it has a cool guitar riff embedded in the chorus. The overall feel is quite a ways off from the days of "The Scientist" or "Don't Panic". We can't help but begin to think that if Viva la Vida was a changing wind, that this new single could be the weather vain confirming its permanence.
