Guitarist Jonny Buckland says that Coldplay ’s latest album, Mylo Xyloto , was inspired by a single image: a rose bursting through concrete. “That was the kind of starting point of the whole thing, this splash of life and color and passion in a sort of bleak, gray place,” says Buckland in a video interview . “Everything else kind of grew out of that one image.”

In other Coldplay news, the band will be releasing a new live CD/DVD package, Live 2012 , on November 20. The set will feature performances from their recent Mylo Xyloto tour, including footage from their concerts at Paris's Stade de France, Montreal's Bell Centre, and last year's headlining performance at the Glastonbury Festival. In addition, the Live 2012 concert film will premiere on EPIX and online at EpixHD.com on November 17. You can sign up for a free trial of EPIX to watch the show.
