Jon Hopkins - Light Through The Veins

At first listen, you might think you're listening to Coldplay's latest album.  That's because this song is actually part of Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends' opening track, "Life In Technicolor".  Just a warning, if you don't like atmospheric electronic music, then this song isn't for you.  It's quite a long track, clocking in at over nine minutes.  Even though it's a lengthy song, it doesn't seem to drag on, at least not for me.  The song doesn't differ much until the end, where it strips down to a basic synth with arpeggios.  I feel that this is the best part of the song.  Because it's an instrumental, "Light Through The Veins" is a great song to have on in the background while doing other tasks.  It's very upbeat and happy sounding, just overall cheerful.  I would check it out if you like electronic music, especially Imogen Heap, or if you want a long, ambient, relaxing song.  If you decide to get the entire album, Insides, you'll notice that it doesn't consist only of electronic instruments, that's a pleasant surprise.
