I wanted to add the Walkman widget to the lockscreen, but I can't.
I read that people are putting it there, but how? I don't have it on the list when I click on the + button. I tried clearing the data, but nothing. I'm on 4.3 latest update.

I think the suggestion of having a Walkman Widget in lock screen is a good option for this problem.
Hope Sony Xperia People soon listen to this, as I too is having this problem in my Xperia Z.

Why can I not add the Walkman to my lock screen? (it appears when active ie. a track is played or paused AND THEN the screen is locked... but I want the option to activate the walkman from the lock screen (it doesn't appear to be an available 'lock screen widget' for some reason - email and calendar are there - even Track ID! but I want the option of Walkman from my lock screen)

Yup..! It's a bug with smartkey app, just uninstall the app to get the Walkman widget back on lockscreen & SleemLDJ a new "recently added" playlist has been added with the latest Walkman update.
I'm not having this same bug problem with my Z1 (the Walkman widget is working on my lock screen fine when I have activated Walkman player) - but I want the option of having Walkman as a lock screen widget permanently (ie. shouldn't have to unclock the phone to get to it .... just swipe and there it is...!) Will uninstalling this smartkey app enable me to achieve this desired result (ie. will Walkman appear in the list of available 'selectable' lock screen widgets?
Secondly, what does this 'smartkey' app do? as i may not wish to uninstall it at all!
Thanks in advance!

had this problem as well, Z1 compact. Had to uninstall smartkey app.
Uninstalling it will not give you a permanent widget, it only helps if you dont get it at all.
What SmartKey usually does, it helps controlling your music player when u have a headset with remotecontroller connected (in collaboration with SmartConnect app).
Thanks for the solutions given.
