Is my cilantro dead? (pic inside)

I planted this cilantro last year and it grew really well. Then I neglected it and it came back surprisingly. I neglected it again and this is what is left. In the pic you see the brown stems, that is what is left over after I cut the top portion off and harvested the coriander. I am unsure what the new green sprouts are though, is this new cilantro life? Or a weed?

Thanks Steve, I was hoping it was! I guess maybe one of the seeds fell and started to sprout? I'm glad I haven't lost it yet. These little cilantro plants sure are strong.

I turned the soil a little bit today, and gave her some water. I hope it flourishes.

+1 looks like cilantro, grab a leaf and taste it if you're daring :D

If it is, clean up the old brown growth, add some near balanced (more towards N) fert's and water in well. Is there enough soil/media? I would use at least a 2 gallon volume minimum for good flavor/harvest.
