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 www.maketradefair.com 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."

Possibly the lamest band in existence. Their entire catalogue is nearly a carbon copy of a short phase Radiohead went through before moving onto other things like people with actual artistic talent tend to do. Coldplay's lyrics are horridly generic, and their lead singer (Chris Martin) likes to wallow in his own sadness and deliver all his lines as if he's about to start crying at any second like a giant doucher.

Coldplay fans often claim to like the band on the grounds that their lyrics are really provocative and profound. It is best to avoid all interaction with these people, as their semi-retardation has been proven to be contagious. They can be identified by the shit stains around their eyes, nose, and mouth due to them habitually burying their heads in their own, and each other's, anuses
Coldplay fan: Dude WTF!? I passed off these Coldplay lyrics as my own work for this poetry assignment in English, didn't get caught, and STILL got a D!! Plus now the short bus shows up at my house every day before school to pick me up! FML!
Person with any musical knowledge whatsoever: Just stay at least 10 feet away from me dude.

12-year-old girl: Hey Chris Martin, thanks for coming over to have sex with me.
Chris Martin: Are you kidding? I like men. I just need your diary to write 12 new songs for the next Coldplay album.
