Paris is a lot closer to London than Madrid, so how was it left off the list? Its urban area has well over 3 million people (8 million or so?). The city proper does not, but for some cities you are evidently using urban area figures - I'n from Montreal, where the city proper has only about 2 million people, yet it still makes the list.

These are ALL the cities with at least 3,000,000 people from the source I used, which I am sure has many mistakes as you pointed out. Sorry but I don't know actually know where to get a reliable list
