I use a Sony Xperia Neo.

I recently formatted my phone. Before, I was able to control my music while the screen was locked. Now, those controls have disappeared. Does anyone have any idea how to restore that option?

Just to clarify: do you mean you did a "factory reset" -- or did you really format your device? In the latter case, did you install a different ROM? – Izzy Mar 28 '13 at 11:50
Which android version do you have installed? Also which app are you using to play your music? – Papul Mar 31 '13 at 18:28
