Coldplay have unveiled their first new material since 2011's Mylo Xyloto.

'Atlas' is a poignant, intimate piano ballad, and marks the first time that the band has ever recorded specifically for a film's soundtrack: "we are so honoured that Coldplay, one of the iconic rock bands of our generation, will perform the first song out on the new soundtrack," said Lionsgate Head of Film Music Tracy McKnight.

Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits the theatres on November; Arcade Fire and Taylor Swift were among the artists featured on the first movie's soundtrack.
