Coldplay stealing from Kraftwerk?

Some of you, over the years, have made fun of my affection for the German band Kraftwerk. The critiques didn't "werk," though-- I'm still into the music of Florian and the boys from Dusseldorf.

Intriguingly, it appears that Coldplay is ripping off Kraftwerk-- with permission (according to the liner notes. Check it out:

I will concede that Chris Martin is a far better singer than anyone in Kraftwerk (sorry, Wolfgang!). They even borrowed the whole "Robot" thing....

They talked about that band in the last episode of Portlandia... hilarious..
You need a punk rock intervention.
