A Fresh Start for the City

A Fresh Start to the City is the second story mission of the Metro Kingdom in Super Mario Odyssey. The mission's objectives are to find all four members of The Super Mario Players for Pauline and restore the power plant located underground.
The mission begins at the Odyssey, and Mario must talk to Pauline who requests that four musicians be found: a drummer a little to the right (who says he heard Mario and Pauline talking and would be a pleasure to join Pauline on stage), a bassist on Mayor Pauline Commemorative Park (who says that he is down for all Pauline has done for the city), a guitarist (who states that because Pauline pays for the gig rates, he is definitely in), and a trumpeter, who is on top of a building that Mario must get to the top of by going up a spark pylon, ground pounding a switch and going across black and white metal blocks with limited time or by jumping from the top of New Donk City Hall; the trumpeter says anytime, anyplace, he would not want to miss the festival. All four musicians reward Power Moons, and each will play the Power Moon jingle with their instrument upon Mario collecting it.
After finding the four musicians, Pauline asks Mario to bring the Underground Power Plant back to commission by going down the sewer that Cappy can remove the drain from. After capturing a Manhole, moving it out of the way and falling down the hole, Mario will see the powerless power plant. In the next room, there is poison water, Poison Piranha Plants and platforms that Cappy can rotate around. The power plant is in the room after that with two Big Poison Piranha Plants surrounded by poison which if defeated will spawn another Power Moon, which unlocks the switch to restore the city's power.
The mission's name (on the brochure screen and in the introductory cutscene if Mario leaves then returns to the kingdom) changes to the following objectives at certain points during the mission:
