A terribly overrated and mediocre band. Basically they sound like Radiohead if they had gotten stuck on "The Bends" and never evolved their sound. Highly accessible and digestible, usually adored by people who think Radiohead is "too weird" or girls who think they like "deep" music. Lead vocalist Chris Martin is a pretentious d-bag whose lyrics consist of nothing but stale cliches passed off as life-changing revelations.
Coldplay can be identified by their trite, universal lyrics like: "Every step that you take / could be your biggest mistake / It could bend or it could break / But that's the risk that you take"

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 most overrated band in the history of modern popular music, next to the beatles. Their music is nice to listen to, but not very musically dynamic and gets tiresome quickly. All their songs are "engineered" to sound perfect and evoke some kind of emotional response. These guys wouldn't know improvisation if it hit them in the face. And they play short concerts now that they're superstars. A fad that will surely fade soon.
"Hey man I'm so glad we're all back together, listening to coldplay, senior year is gonna be great! These are good days we're living bro. Man this song makes me think." *looks up at sky*
