One way to do it would be adding an adjustment curves layer - go to the blue channel and pull up on the "black" (dot at the bottom left corner of the curve line)

Also, If you are shooting in RAW, you can go the the area in ACR (adobe camera raw) dialog and at the camera calibration section you can move the Shadows "tint" slider to add green and magenta tints into the shadows......

These are some of the simpler ones, there is many different ways to get this effect....

the easiest way is just by using an adjustment layer called "selective color" and experimenting with the settings like making the blacks "blue-ish" make yellow pops and add more magenta

looks to me like someone went into curves and raised up the black point up about 25% and then bumped the blue curve just a tad.

They look they have had external file masks applied. Something like a fine halftone screen with the various elements added. In lighten mode maybe at about 8%.

Basically what you can tell from the replies here is that if the images were shot on digital, then the effects were surely done in post-production, and well, there are a million different ways to get this same look...

Exactly!
You should try yourself, who knows, you may end up with an effect that you like better than those on the shots!

I agree with Jack the Ripper. If this were a CMYK file, it looks like the black channel were turned off. You can get this effect using Selective Color, then go to the blacks, reduce black and pump up the blues and magentas.

If you load the images up and magnify them you will see that a black grain was added over the whole image. That is why I think a black mask much like a halftone screen was used. The colors have not been muted, it is just that there are so many fine black dots that it appears that way.
