Recently, while surfing on Facebook, I almost could not believe my eyes when I saw the new Coldplay album cover. It was so colorful and exceptionally beautiful, I couldn’t help but look at it. And the best thing is that in the middle of the image there was the flower of life, painted in colorful circles :-).
Absolute madness, these guys aren’t just some random people, and they spread this symbol over the entire planet and bring it to the masses. I have no idea what there is behind this story, but whatever, it is very positive for us all. So thumbs up!
I will definitely continue researching on the matter, because I genuinely want to know if the guys of Coldplay know more about the flower of life or if a designer had the idea of putting it on the cover.
The entire album cover is a mandala, it reflects all motifs, and shows a fantastic world. While looking at it, I have noticed many little things such as the boy on a cloud, for example, who seems to meditate, or the gate with the parrots, that looks like an entrance to another dimension. I was fascinated and still am.
Thanks to the maker.
As a small homage to Coldplay here comes a little advertising. Click on the picture to go to Amazon, where you can buy the album.
Update on the 07.04.2016: I did some research and found an article where the “Band Bring me the Horizon” accuses “Coldplay” of having stolen their cover.
It’s not that easy with the flower of life, there are many different beautiful patterns.

Unfortunately I still haven’t found out why the two bands have decided to use the flower of life in their covers. I’d really appreciate any suggestions :-).
