Coldplay’s “butterfly package” went out today and it’s already viral

Coldplay are releasing their latest live album today, December 7th, and it comes with a concert film.

Following the release of A Head Full of Dreams, a documentary about the British band’s history by film director Mat Whitecross, today Coldplay are launching the “butterfly package”.

It includes material from two of Coldplay’s live shows in South America during their latest world tour in 2018, which was supporting A Head Full of Dreams, their 2015 album. There will be both a film and a record: the video is that of their performance in Saõ Paulo, Brazil, and the record is from Coldplay’s concert in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

What can you buy today?

The choice ranges from a set of two CDs and two DVDs, to three LPs and two DVDs, or you can get Live in Buenos Aires just as the two CDs alone. A “very limited edition” of audio cassettes is available too.


Back in October, the band released a clip from Live in Saõ Paulo, which hit more than three million views on YouTube. Will the whole movie live up to the standard of the clip? It sure looks like it. In the first few hours after the release, the album reached number one on iTunes in 14 countries.

As the fans are wondering whether the band is going to release a new album in 2019, and start guessing dates, no doubt that the “butterfly package” is a good way to keep them busy.
