If the colour appears due to TeX commands (\textcolor{blue}{some blue 
text} for example), you could patch those commands to write out the 
page number to an external file whenever they're used. (Before I try 
this myself I'll see if it's actually useful to you.)

Otherwise (if your included figures may or may not include colour) then 
Chris Goedde's suggestion sounds the most promising. Of course, if ALL 
of your figures contained colour, then you could obtain their page 
number from the .lof file.

Best of luck!
