The band – Who are Coldplay?
The name Chris Martin is a household name for many music fans. The inimitable voice of the frontman has characterized the melodic Coldplay songs since the beginning. The successful band is completed by three other musical greats: Johnny Buckland on guitar, Guy Berryman on bass and keyboard, and Will Champion behind the drums. All of them complement Chris Martin’s vocal performances with their background vocals. Today, Coldplay is a perfectly harmonized band that has remained faithful to each other personally and musically since its inception – not without an evolution in sound.
Biography – From Indie Band to International Phenomenon
The roots of the British band lead to the capital of the United Kingdom. The four members met in 1996 at University College London and first gave themselves the name Starfish. After three fan-favorite EPs, the debut album Parachutes followed in 2000, paving the way for early success. Parachutes alone has sold over 13 million copies to date. These figures were surpassed by the follow-up album A Rush of Blood to the Head, which has sold over 15 million copies to date. The band finally grew into a mainstream phenomenon thanks to the third release, X&Y, which not only achieved countless #1 ratings in the charts, but is also considered the best-selling album of the year with over 8 million copies sold in 2005 alone. Coldplay continued their road to success with Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends (2008) as well as Mylo Xyloto (2011) – there was an evolution of the sound, which changed more and more from indie rock to pop rock with diverse electronic facets. Also releases like Ghost Stories (2014), A Head Full of Dreams (2015), Everyday Live (2019) as well as Music of the Spheres (2021) ensured that the band could sell over 100 million records worldwide. The British group is now a real phenomenon on the international music scene.
