Joe Satriani is sueing them, says they copied several of his guitar licks from this song:

Listen to the guitar lick at :50. It's just like viva la vida.
They played them side to side and then played them on top of each other on a morning show earlier this week. Also mentioned there's another artist suing them for stealing his material for ANOTHER part of that song. (Which Jon just posted)
They're DEAD on when you overlay them.
Satriani is shooting for at least a portion of all the money Coldplay made off Viva La Vida. In context, that song was the #1 download on iTunes last year.
