    In the late 1990s, Chris Martin started writing songs for his art-rock college band. After a few years of playing in clubs and sending demos to record labels in the UK, he met Jonny Buckland at University College London. Coldplay’s music is typically uplifting, but beneath the surface their lyrics explore vulnerability. They sing about love and loss. 

    They started playing gigs, first supporting Keane and then allowing their manager, Phil Harvey, to book them in larger venues, such as the Camden Falcon. They were spotted by a few record labels and eventually signed with the independent label Fierce Panda Records, which released their first EP ‘Safety‘ (1998). In 2000, Coldplay won the Phil Collins Award for the best-unsigned band. This prompted the British branch of Parlophone Records to sign them.

    Some of the best songs of the band include the following : 

    • Paradise
    • We never change 
    • Hurts like heaven 
    • Speed of Sound 
    • In my Place 
    • The Scientist 
    • A sky full of Stars 
    • Viva La Vida 
    • Sparks 
    • Green eyes 
    • Clocks

The band is one of only eleven British artists to have sold more than 20 million albums worldwide. They headlined at Glastonbury Festival in 2011 and 2013, having performed at every Glastonbury since 2005.
