Are these 2 different types of plants/weeds

I suspect the one on the right of the picture is a codlins-and-cream but on the left a weed?

    Had to look up codlins and cream, another name for willowherb .You learn something new every day! 
    They look like the same plant to me  :)

    Codlins and cream is the Greater Willowherb and looks like the plant on the right. 

    The others are also willow herbs ... there are several varieties. 

    I’d weed them all out quick march!  😉

    Willowherb - bane of my gardening life. There are various types but the one I have has extremely long roots and sprouts again if it breaks. I find that they are best removed at an early stage when it's easier to get the whole thing out.
