Coldplay tracks for Guitar Hero 3

"Violet Hill" and "Yellow" among them.

Activision has plans to add a trio of Coldplay songs to Guitar Hero 3 this Thursday, including a track from the recently released "Viva la Vida" album.

That song is "Violet Hill", the one where they go for a walk in the country and end up singing outside that house with a strong drum part beating throughout.

Not as good as the one on that Apple advert if you ask us. The album is out now in the UK, incidentally.

The other two tracks are "Yellow" and "God Put a Smile Upon Your Face".

Activision says both PS3 and 360 will be given the songs at the same time, but we expect the European PlayStation Store to have its usual week-long delay.

Guitar Hero 3 packs usually cost 500 Points (GBP 4.25 / EUR 6.00) on Live Marketplace, and GBP 3.99 on the PlayStation Store.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
