Coldplay are an English alternative rock band, formed in
London in 1998. Coldplay comprises Chris Martin (lead
vocals, keyboards, guitar), Jonny Buckland (lead guitar),
Guy Berryman (bass guitar), and Will Champion (drums,
backing vocals, other instruments).
Coldplay’s early material was compared to acts such as
Radiohead, Jeff Buckley, U2, and Travis. Coldplay achieved
worldwide fame with the release of the single “Yellow”,
followed by their debut album, Parachutes (2000), which was
nominated for the Mercury Prize. Coldplays second album, A
Rush of Blood to the Head (2002), won multiple awards,
including NME’s Album of the Year. Coldplays next release,
X&Y (2005), received a slightly less enthusiastic yet still
generally positive reception. Coldplays fourth studio album,
Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends (2008), was
produced by Brian Eno and released again to largely
favourable reviews, earning several Grammy nominations and
wins. Coldplay have sold over 50 million records worldwide.
Since the release of Parachutes, Coldplay have drawn
influence from other sources, including Echo & the Bunnymen,
Kate Bush, George Harrison and Muse on A Rush of Blood to
the Head, Johnny Cash and Kraftwerk for X&Y and Blur,
Arcade Fire and My Bloody Valentine on Viva la Vida.
Coldplay have been an active supporter of various social and
political causes, such as Oxfam’s Make Trade Fair campaign
and Amnesty International. The group have also performed at
various charity projects such as Band Aid 20, Live 8, Sound
Relief, and the Teenage Cancer Trust.
