El lunes próximo vs. el lunes que viene, are they synonymous and interchangeable?

Hola Emanuel

El lunes que viene and el próximo lunes are synonymous and interchangeable, for "next Monday", but notice that I am saying "el próximo lunes" not "el lunes próximo". If I used "el lunes próximo" this would normally mean that I am referring to the Monday that comes after some date that has been mentioned. See this mini dialogue:

¿Entonces tienes tu examen de inglés el mismo día que tu examen de alemán?

- No. El examen de alemán lo tengo el lunes próximo. 

The second person is saying that the German exam is the Monday "after he has the English exam". 

I hope this helps,

Inma
