A Google search led me to this program:
It's free and online, let us know how you get on.
Download both sitemaps to your desktop, right click on them and select 'open with' then select Excel
Select 'As an XML Table' from the next prompt, then click yes on the next prompt about not all schema being visible.
For large sitemaps: files containing: ~ 7,000,000+ URLs, you can use this script (doesn't require to install anything).
