On December 7, Coldplay will celebrate their record-breaking A Head Full Of Dreams Tourwith the release of Live In Buenos Aires / Live In São Paulo / A Head Full Of Dreams (Film), on CD, DVD, vinyl and digital.
The Live In Buenos Aires album was recorded on 15 November 2017 – the final night of the A Head Full Of Dreams Tour. The 24 track audio set marks the first time that a Coldplay concert has been released in its entirety.
The accompanying two hour concert film Live In São Paulo was filmed a week earlier on 8 November 2017.
The A Head Full Of Dreams Tour has been confirmed as the third biggest of all time, having played to more than 5.5 million fans across the world.
The combined live album / live concert film release – also known as the Butterfly package – is completed by the new A Head Full Of Dreams documentary film, which charts Coldplay’s colourful 20 year history.
In addition, Viva La Vida from Live In Buenos Aires is available to stream/download worldwide from today here,
Live In Buenos Aires and Live In São Paulo feature hits and fan favourites from all seven of the band’s Number 1 studio albums.
The full Butterfly package is available to pre-order now as a 2 x DVD / 2 x CD set and a 2 x DVD / 3 x gold vinyl collection. A standalone 2 x CD edition of the Live In Buenos Airesalbum is also available.

The film is helmed by Mat Whitecross – director of Supersonic, the acclaimed 2016 Oasis documentary – who met the four friends at college in London, before they’d even formed the band. From Coldplay’s very first rehearsal in a cramped student bedroom, Whitecross has been there to capture the music and the relationships on tape.
The artwork for the Butterfly package was created by Icelandic-born artist Kristjana S Williams. The collage features dozens of visual motifs drawn from the band’s artwork, videos and history. Fans are currently able to explore the artwork via a magnifying tool at Coldplay.com.
