See the Chris Martin fronted back perform 'Viva La Vida' during their colourful opening set at the Capital FM Summertime Ball 2012.

Coldplay performed 'Viva La Vida' during their appearance at the Summertime Ball in London.

The song, which you can watch below, is taken from the band's 2008 album 'Viva La Vida And Death And All His Friends'.

The track's lyrics include a number of historical and Christian references, and its sing-along chorus has made it a favourite during Coldplay's ongoing 'Mylo Xyloto' world tour, which called to the UK this summer.

Despite marking a change of sound for the band, 'Viva La Vida' was praised by critics after its released in 2008.
