Do you think this could have to do anything with Coldplay's undying love for Apple/Steve Jobs?
First thing I thought of was Martin playing at an Apple event last(?) year and I heard that they performed at the celebration for Steve Jobs too at Apple HQ this past week.
Nah, I think it's them being greedy. They make more money from people buying the album - assume it's not worth it.
Doubt it has anything to do with Apple/Steve Jobs.
