Coldplay are wrapping up their ‘Mylo Xyloto’ album cycle with the Nov. 20 release of ‘Live 2012,’ a concert film and album that captures highlights from the band’s year-long world tour.

More than 3 million fans attended shows during the Mylo Xyloto Tour, which began in June 2011. In a trailer promoting the film, frontman Chris Martin says, “I would love it if in 20 years, I look back on this and think, ‘That’s when we started to become really good.'”

The film will premiere online on Nov. 17 at The DVD was directed by Paul Dugdale, who also worked on Adele‘s ‘Live at Royal Albert Hall.’ Dugdale says in a press release, “We wanted to make a film that was as intimate as it was epic, punctuating Coldplay’s color-drenched performance with candid portraits of the band.”

Since the tour began, the group earned hit singles with ‘Paradise’ and ‘Every Teardrop is a Waterfall,’ performed ‘Princess of China’ at the Grammy Awards with Rihanna, and earned headlining slots at Lollapalooza and Glastonbury. The film and CD are expected to feature some of their biggest hits from ‘Mylo Xyloto’ as well as older favorites like ‘Yellow,’ ‘Clocks’ and ‘Viva La Vida.’

Martin adds, “The Mylo Xyloto tour has been the most fun we’ve ever had as a band. It’s felt very uplifting right from the start; partly because we are proud of the music, the LED wristbands, the pyrotechnics, the lasers and all of that stuff, but mainly because of the amazing audiences that we’ve been playing for. Over the years, our crowd has become more and more a part of the concert itself. They’re loud, diverse, full of soul, and make the songs sound much better than we can on our own. We wanted to try to bottle the incredible feeling that they give us, and hence our concert film.”
