Hi!
You can't add column to all list templates or content types across the web, you add fields only to your own templates and content types (not system ones). So you can create your own list template and then users will use your template to create lists.
The other way is to create ListAdded event receiver (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.sharepoint.splisteventreceiver.listadded.aspx) and then you can write code that will add you field to the list.
