Probably the greatest band in the world. Their music provides an escape from the crap "music" that we unfortunately have nowadays.
They are from the UK and they have made 4 studio albums so far, and they're releasing the 5th one this fall.

Their songs make you FEEL something. Their songs aren't about partying, hooking up, drugs, money, alcohol or any of the trash modern "artists" create nowadays. Their songs can be about anything, but they conceal their meanings behind the lyrics. It's your job to figure out what the meanings of the songs are.
The lead singer, Chris Martin, has a very soothing voice and he sounds just as amazing live as he does in the studio. That's REAL talent for you. Each band member is important and everyone contributes.

Give them a listen and you'll understand what I mean. They've been my favorite band for pretty much my entire life.
Me: I dive in at the deep end, you become my best friend. I wanna love you but I don't know if I can...

Guy: Wow, that sounds pretty good. Who is that?

Me: This is X&Y by Coldplay. You should give them a listen.

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."
