Death Will Never Conquer is a song written during sessions for Coldplay's fourth studio album.

While the song was left off of the album, it was given away as a free download on July 14 on coldplay.com to mark the beginning of the Viva La Vida Tour and eventually featured as the B-side to the Viva La Vida CD single.

The song is also a regular part of the tour's setlist alongside other album songs, where drummer Will Champion takes a rare lead vocal. This is a live-only feature, as Chris Martin sings vocals as normal in the released studio version of the song.

It is a very short country song on acoustic piano.

The Oracle on Death Will Never Conquer

Q. Dear Oracle: In the LRLRL's song Death Will Never Conquer Will sings it. My question is: Who played the harmonica just after Will sings?
The Oracle replies:
Death Will Never Conquer was, as you say, sung live by Will (also on guitar as was Guy). Jonny was taking charge of a tambourine and it was Chris playing the harmonica.

Q. Tthe single "Death Will Never Conquer" is that really Will singing lead vocal? I know he is singing it live at the show, but the single given free on this site...sounds like Chris but I read in Rolling Stone Champion sings it...please Oracle help my ears figure this out!!
The Oracle replies:
It's not a single per se but the track that was given away on this site was indeed sung by Chris. Will sings it at the live shows but there's no recorded version of Death Will Never Conquer with Will's vocal on it.

Lyrics

If sweet death should ever conquer me
Let me know boys, let me know
If you hear him coming, won't you let me flee?
Let me go boys, let me go
One day death is going to conquer me
I’ll be down where the waters flow
I hope sweet heaven has a place for me
Let me know boys, let me know

If sweet death should ever conquer me
Take me down to some place below
If you hear him coming, won't you set me free?
Let me go boys, let me go
If you hear him coming, won't you say for me?
That I just don’t want to go...
