Coldplay: Viva La Vida

Coldplay was inspired by a painting by Frida Kahlo, the 20th century Mexican artist. The literal translation of the painting's title is "Long Live Life." The album's artwork features the painting Liberty Leading the People (La Liberté guidant le peuple) by French painter Eugène Delacroix, commemorating the July Revolution of 1830.
Here is the Coldplay commercial for iTunes:
