Coldplay achieved worldwide fame with the release of their single "Yellow", followed by their debut album, Parachutes (2000), which was nominated for the Mercury Prize.

History

Formation and first years (1996–1999)

The members of the band met at the University College London (UCL) in September 1996. Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland were the first members of the band, having met one another during their orientation week. They spent the rest of the college year planning a band, with their efforts culminating in a band called Pectoralz.[9] Later, Guy Berryman, a classmate of the two, joined the band without considering what musical direction it was taking. By 1997, the group performed gigs for local Camden promoters at small clubs. By that time, the band had renamed themselves Starfish.[10] Martin also had recruited his longtime school friend Phil Harvey, who was studying classics at Oxford, to be the band's manager.[11] Affiliations: University of London Russell Group LERU EUA ACU Golden Triangle G5 Website: http://www. ...

The band's lineup was complete when Will Champion joined the band to take up percussion duties. Champion had grown up playing piano, guitar, bass, and tin whistle; he quickly learned the drums, despite having no previous experience.[9] Eventually Tim Rice-Oxley, a mutual friend, permitted the band to use the name "Coldplay," which he had used for his band but then thought the name was "too depressing".[10] Rice-Oxley was also offered the position as Coldplay's keyboard player, but he refused since he was already committed to the band Keane.[10] Will The Chump Champion (born William Champion, 31 July 1978) is the drummer of the band Coldplay. ...

In 1998, the band released 500 copies of the Safety EP.[12] Most of the discs were given to record companies and friends; only 50 copies remained for sale to the public. In December, Coldplay signed to the independent label Fierce Panda.[12] Their first release was the three-track Brothers and Sisters EP, which they had quickly recorded over four days in February 1999.[12] The Safety EP is the first release by British band Coldplay. ...

After completing their final examinations, Coldplay signed to Parlophone for a five-album contract in the spring of 1999.[13] After making their first appearance at Glastonbury, the band went into studio to record a third EP titled The Blue Room.[14] 5,000 copies were made available to the public in October,[15] and the single "Bigger Stronger", which received airplay on Radio 1, was establishing Coldplay. However, the recording sessions for The Blue Room were tumultuous. Martin kicked Champion out of the band but later pleaded with him to return, and because of his guilt, went on a drinking binge. Eventually, the band worked out their differences and put in place a new set of rules to keep the group intact. First, the band declared an all-for-one approach: Coldplay was a democracy, and profits were to be shared equally, taking a page from bands like U2 and R.E.M. Second, the band would fire anyone who used hard drugs.[16] Parlophone is a record label, founded in Germany in 1896 by the Carl Lindström Company. ...

Parachutes (1999–2001)

In March 1999, Coldplay focused efforts on their debut album, recorded at Rockfield Studios with producer Ken Nelson. They also played on the Carling Tour, which showcased up-and-coming acts. After releasing three EPs without a hit song, Coldplay scored their first Top 40 single, "Shiver". Released in March 2000, it reached a modest #35 on the UK Singles Chart[17] and earned the band their first airplay on MTV. June 2000 was a pivotal moment in Coldplay's history: the band embarked on their first headlining tour, which included a triumphant return to Glastonbury. More notably, the group released the breakthrough single, "Yellow".[18] The song shot to #4 on the UK Singles Chart and placed Coldplay in public consciousness.[18] Rockfield Studios, near Monmouth in South Wales and just outside the village of Rockfield, are where many of British rock music’s most successful recordings have been made. ...

Coldplay released their first full-length album, Parachutes, in July 2000, which debuted at #1 on the UK Albums Chart.[19] Along with critical acclaim, Parachutes was sometimes criticised for bearing a strong resemblance to the music of alternative rock band Radiohead in their The BendsOK Computer era. "Yellow" and "Trouble" earned regular radio airplay on both sides of the Atlantic. Parlophone originally predicted sales of 400,000 units of Parachutes; by Christmas, 1.6 million copies had been sold in the United Kingdom alone. Parachutes was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in September 2000.

Having found success in Europe, the band set their sights on North America,[20] and Parachutes was released there in November 2000. The band embarked on a US club tour in early 2001, beginning with a show in Vancouver, Canada, which was coupled with appearances on Saturday Night Live, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and The Late Show with David Letterman. Whilst Parachutes was a slow-burning success in the US, it eventually reached double-platinum status.

At that time Coldplay covered The Pretenders' 1983 hit "2000 Miles", which was made available for download on their official site. It was the top selling UK download that year, with proceeds from the sales donated to Future Forests and Stop Handgun Violence campaigns.

X&Y (2004–2006)

Coldplay spent most of 2004 out of the spotlight, resting from touring, and recording their third album. In terms of particular musical influences for it, bassist Guy Berryman said, "We were listening to lots of different stuff during the early stages [of X&Y] from Bowie, Eno and Pink Floyd to Depeche Mode, Kate Bush and Kraftwerk. And U2 as we usually do."[25] In May, Chris Martin and his wife, actress Gwyneth Paltrow, celebrated the birth of a daughter, named Apple.[26] Gwyneth Kate Paltrow (born September 27, 1972)[1] is an Academy Award-, Golden Globe- and two-time Screen Actors Guild Award-winning American actress. ...


X&Y was released in June 2005 in UK and Europe.[27] This new, delayed release date had put the album back into the next fiscal year, actually causing EMI's stock to drop.[28][29] It became the best-selling album of 2005 with worldwide sales of 8.3 million. The lead single, "Speed of Sound",[30] made its radio and online music store debut on 18 April and was released as a CD on 23 May 2005.[31] The album debuted at #1 in 22 countries worldwide and was the third-fastest selling album in UK chart history. Two other singles were released that year: "Fix You" in September and "Talk" in December. The latter is set to the melody of "Computer Love", which was released in 1981 by the German synthpop band Kraftwerk and had in the previous year been revived by Norwegian guitarist Erik Wollo. Despite the commercial success, the critical reaction to X&Y was less enthusiastic than that of its predecessor, with New York Times critic Jon Pareles describing Coldplay as "the most insufferable band of the decade",[32] while others compared them to U2.[33] Chris Martin later revealed that the negative remarks made him feel "liberated".[34]-1...

Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends (2006–present)

The band began to work on their fourth studio album, Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends, as early as December 2006, with Brian Eno and Markus Dravs as their producers. In addition, music producer Timbaland was rumoured to be collaborating.[38] Coldplay took a break from recording and toured Latin America in early 2007, including shows in Chile, Argentina, Brazil, and Mexico.[39] The band revealed that the album seemed to be shaping up with Hispanic influences, after having recorded in churches and other areas in Latin America and Spain during their tour.

Chris Martin described Viva la Vida as a new direction for Coldplay: a change from their past three albums, which they have referred to as a 'trilogy'.[40] Martin has also revealed that this album features much less of his falsetto, and he has allowed his voice's lower register to take precedence.[40] Some songs, such as "Violet Hill", contain distorted guitar riffs and bluesy undertones.[40] "Violet Hill" was confirmed as the first single, with a radio release date of 29 April 2008.[41] After the first play, it was freely obtainable from Coldplay's website from 12:15 pm (GMT +0) for one week (achieving two million downloads),[42] until it became commercially available to download on May 6.[43][44] "Violet Hill" entered the UK Top 10, US Top 40 (entering the Top 10 in the Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart) and charted well in the rest of the world. The title track, "Viva la Vida", was also released exclusively on iTunes; it has since become the band's first #1 on the Hot 100[45] and also their first UK #1, based on download sales alone.[46] On 16 June, Coldplay began their Viva la Vida Tour with a free concert at Brixton Academy in London.[47] This was followed two days later by a 45-minute performance that was broadcast live from outside BBC Television Centre.[48] Falsetto (Italian diminutive of falso, false) is a singing technique that produces sounds that are pitched higher than the singers normal range, in the treble range. ... is the 119th day of the year (120th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... 2008 (MMVIII) is the current year, a leap year that started on Tuesday of the Common Era (or Anno Domini), in accordance with the Gregorian calendar. ... is the 126th day of the year (127th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Musical style

Coldplay's musical style has been defined as alternative rock, being compared to Jeff Buckley and Oasis,[53][54] while on their MySpace profile, Coldplay describes their musical style as "very heavy soft rock".[55] The band's music has been called "meditative"; it "[reflects] on their emotions" and lead singer/songwriter Martin "endlessly examine[s] his feelings".[56] Martin's lyrical wordplay has been called feminist, similar to Andrew Montgomery of Geneva.[54] Alternative music redirects here. ...

The tone of the band's first studio album, Parachutes, was defined as melodic pop with "distorted guitar riffs and switching percussion".[who?] It was also described as being "exquisitely dark and artistically abrasive".[54] In a review for A Rush of Blood to the Head, the songs were considered to contain "lush melodies and a heartbreak" and that they had a "newfound confidence."[57] The music on X&Y has been considered to be "ruminations on Martin's doubts, fears, hopes, and loves."[56] Parachutes (2000) was the first album released by the band Coldplay. ...

Despite Coldplay's worldwide popularity, the band has remained protective of how their music is used in the media, refusing its use for product endorsements. In the past, Coldplay turned down multi-million dollar contracts from Gatorade, Diet Coke, and Gap, who wanted to use the songs "Yellow", "Trouble", and "Don't Panic" respectively.[58] According to vocalist/pianist Martin, "We wouldn't be able to live with ourselves if we sold the songs' meanings like that."[58] The song "Viva la Vida" was featured in a commercial for the iTunes Store, advertising its exclusive availability of the single as a digital download on iTunes. Coldplay is a supporter of Amnesty International.[59] Chris Martin is also noted as one of the most visible celebrity advocates for fair trade, supporting Oxfam's ongoing Make Trade Fair campaign.[60] Martin has been on trips with Oxfam to assess conditions, has appeared in its advertising campaign, and is known for wearing a "Make Trade Fair" wristband during public appearances, including at Coldplay concerts.[61] The band were also filmed for Make Poverty History, clicking their fingers.

In the band's early years, Coldplay was also widely noted in the media for their claim to give 10% of the band's profits to charity.[62] Bassist Guy Berryman said, "You can make people aware of issues. It isn't very much effort for us at all, but if it can help people, then we want to do it."[59]
