Johnny Buckland, Chris Martin, Guy Berryman and Will Champion of Coldplay attend the MTV Europe Music Awards 2011 at the Odyssey Arena on November 6, 2011 in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Coldplay has returned from their post-"Mylo Xyloto" respite with "Atlas," the first single from the soundtrack to "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire." The song's lyric video launched online on Friday (Sept. 6) and captures the sweeping grandeur of the piano-driven track.

Chris Martin and co. wrote "Atlas" specifically for "Catching Fire," and the lyrics abstractly touch upon main characters Katniss and Peeta's mutual reliance. "Carry your world/I'll carry your world," Martin croons as the piano and guitars congeal for a weighty conclusion.

"Atlas," which was recorded in London produced by Coldplay with Daniel Green and Rik Simpson, is currently available on iTunes, and will be featured in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" film when it hits theaters on Nov. 22. The song is Coldplay's first new track in almost two years, as their previous full-length, "Mylo Xyloto," was released in October 2011.

The first "Hunger Games" soundtrack, which was released in March 2012, was led by Taylor Swift's single "Safe & Sound," which featured the Civil Wars. The single has sold 1.6 million downloads to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
