    "Life in Technicolor" was released in 2008 on Coldplay's
breakthrough album "Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends".
It was the first track of the album and included no lyrics,
just a small amount of vocalizations. However, several months
later the band released the "leftover" songs from the
"Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends" songwriting sessions
on the "Prospekt's March" EP. The first track on this amazing EP
 was entitled "Life in Technicolor II" and was a redo of "Life in
Technicolor" but omitting the intro released on VLVoDaAHF ("Light
Through The Veins" by Jon Hopkins), and adding lyrics and in effect
several minutes of playing time.
    This tab can be used for LiT II, but truthfully I didn't feel
like repeating the same lick over and over, just with lyrics. You
 can figure that out for yourself. The intro for LiT is "Light
Through the Veins" by Jon Hopkins, entirely electronic, so I
apologize if it's flawed. I give you the notes, but you can
rearrange them all you like. Have fun with it. I would advise
finger picking with this, if you want the bass notes. I've also
included the chords. This sounds best on an acoustic, in my opinion,
but interpret how you please. This tab is good if you are solo. Have
fun, and Happy music making!

^That's Hopkins' Intro.^ Here's the riff for most of the song,
repeat it a bunch of times, you know what to do. This is the verse(s)
in LiT II.You may want to omit the bass (bottom) notes in the beginning,
 or if someone else is playing the chords. Let the bottom notes ring.
(Squiggles~ are "let it ring" symbols). Notes in Parentheses are optional,
 I like them.

Then repeat this next riff a couple times. This is where the
vocalizations come in for LiT, and This is the Chorus in LiT II.
