I have caught Life Wasted as an obvious example, sounds atrocious tuned down to my ears. I can tell Getaway is tuned down too and it sucks all of the life from it.

What else?

From memory:

After the 2006 tour:
Life Wasted
Worldwide Suicide

Since first live performance:
Got Some (except live on Conan O'Brien TV show)
The Fixer
Getaway
Infallible

I guess there are others I miss right now.
I think State of Love and Trust and Do the Evolution were played in a lower key on some nights (like Oceans in Barcelona 2018).

Not regular played downtunned, but already happened:

Satans Bed (Belo Horizonte 2015)
Tremor Christ (not sure)
Evacuation (the latest ones)
Save You (in a concert from 2010 maybe Belfast)
Habit (since 2011)
Comatose (since 2013? I heard at Lollapalooza Brazil)
Marker in the Sand (since 2009? Sounds Awful)
Force of Nature (i think)

All of the were played in their original key on the 2006 tour but I believe have been consistently tuned down a half-step since 2007:

Life Wasted
World Wide Suicide
Comatose
Marker in the Sand
Unemployable

The only exception is Unemployable, which was performed back in its original key the last time they played it in 2013.

As already noted above, all of the following have never been played live in their original key, being tuned down from their first performance onwards:

Gonna See My Friend
Got Some
The Fixer
Supersonic
Force of Nature
Getaway
My Father's Son
Infallible

Sirens was performed in its original key during 2013 and 2014 but has been played in a lower key since 2015 onwards.

I hope the band has considered the limits of Ed's voice and has recorded the Gigaton songs in a key that he can sing on live.

The downtuned live versions of the Backspacer and Lightning Bolt songs have impacted my appreciation of these albums in the long run, I can't listen to the versions from the Green Habit live compilation...
