About Coldplay

After surfacing in 2000 with the breakthrough single "Yellow," Coldplay quickly became one of the biggest bands of the early 21st century, honing a mix of introspective Brit-pop and anthemic rock that helped push the British quartet to the top of album charts worldwide. The group's emergence was perfectly timed: with Radiohead embracing cerebral electronic soundscapes and Oasis further exploring psychedelic experimentation, audiences were hungry for a fresh-faced rock band with big aspirations and an even bigger sound. After first full-length Parachutes went multi-platinum in several countries and earned the band its first Grammy, Coldplay continued to mature into the 2000s, topping their debut album's success with higher record sales, an ever-evolving sound that would absorb from multiple genres, and record-breaking global stadium tours.
