An Amazing Band, originally called 'Starfish' (thank god they changed it!!)
Have 3 albums: 'Parachutes' (2000) 'A Rush of Blood to the Head' (2002) and there newest 'X&Y' (2005)
The band members are Chris Martin (vocals, piano, guitar) Jonny Buckland (guitar, harmonics) Guy Berryman (Bass) and Will Champion (drums)

A lot of people debate over which band is better, Radiohead or Coldplay...and the answer is Radiohead, in my opinion, because they started it all. If Radiohead hadn't existed would Coldplay sound the way they do? Plus Thom Yorke has a better voice and piano skills than Chris Martin. Also if you listen to 'Just' by Radiohead you could never see coldplay writing/playing or singing anything like that... because they are like the mellow, caffeine-free Radiohead. Not that, that is a bad thing because they still rock. Some people also think they are overrated but they have amazing talent and a unique sound so don't knock it until you've listened to them.
4 Grammies, 4 Brit awards and almost 17 million album sales says something about the band.

Chris Martin is also huge charity work. Go check out and see all the great stuff he's done.
Their hit songs and my favorites: Yellow, Trouble, Shiver, Clocks, The Scientist, In my Place, Don't Panic, God put a Smile Upon Your Face, Spies, Politik, Green Eyes, For You, Warning Sign, Moses, Daylight, Everythings Not Lost, Amsterdam, Beautiful World, Only Superstition, Speed of Sound & lots more.

1) To rip off someone else's intellectual property and claim it as your own, as the pop band Coldplay has done repeatedly.

also common -
2) get/be coldplayed: to be the object or victim of someone else's ripoff scheme.
1) "Dude, that Viva La Vida song is epic"
"Yeah? It'd be a lot more epic if they hadn't coldplayed the entire melody line and chord progression straight from Joe Satriani's 'If I Could Fly'. "
2) "Damn, I love that remake of Kraftwerk's 'Computer Love' don't you?"
"Well, sadly it's actually not Kraftwerk, they just got coldplayed."

The band that produces thirty second songs on repeat for four and a half minutes.
Dude 1: Dude is your ipod on repeat?

Dude 2: No its just coldplay

Noise that people call music and every song sounds the same.

Just a way for people to be cool
The sound of styrofoam rubbing together is Coldplay.


Eww, you like Coldplay? You must hate life!
