That's like asking "If the movie ends was there a purpose in watching it?"

Of course it matters. You are a conscious being with an understanding of what something is that matters. Having any glimpse of emotion attaches you to this world, or your own life, hence it matters to you now. You don't need to live forever to have your life matter.

Does it matter in what sense?

If there was no meaning to life, then why do you think we'd be here?

Of course it'd matter if we all died. Without purpose or intent to life we would live in a lawless society, an anarchist/mobocracy society. Without a point in living, we might as well all commit ritual suicide to avoid the pains we go through in life. Since neither of these conditions exist, it's obvious that life has some purpose or intent, to violate that purpose would be unjust.

We won't be alive to cry about it. Death ensure releif from the pain and monotony this Darwinistic world dishes toward us.

It doesn't matter if we all live either.

Just because we exist doesn't mean we have a purpose.

Also, there can be a point to an action without meaning. Why do I urinate? I do so to remove waste from my body. Is there some deep meaning behind it? I don't think so.

Yes we need a purpose, but meaning is just something that makes us feel better. I'm happy just being.
