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.

The best band ever. Radiohead came first, but Ed O'Brien couldn't tune Jon Buckland's guitar.
Haters can drink their haterade but no one can deny that even if they don't like the music, Coldplay's talent on a scale from 1 to 10, they're about a 57.

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.

Wicked awesome band from some other country.
"Once, I listened to a song by Coldplay, and I liked it so much I went out and told my friend's mom that Coldplay is really good and she should probably buy their newest album because it's really good."

A good band with fresh music back in 2000-2002, but their music style hasnt changed and they havnt grown musically. Over-rated now by lots of clingy fans. They have plenty of talent and work well as a group. But Chris Martin (lead singer) has cocky tendancies and the new album is all the same songs, same tempos, same rhythems. Many bands will explore different genres and cultures of music. Coldplay are just stuck in a cycle these days. Talented, but Milky- White music these days
"Coldplay had some great hits, but now they need to freshen up their style"

1) A band, which I must say, has become overrated, nonetheless a good band. I personally greatly enjoy their music.

It's argued greatly on this site whether Coldplay or Radiohead is a better band. I prefer Coldplay, but Radiohead is also a good band. You can like either, no one gives a shit. Quit arguing about it.

2) Apparently some form of sexual act that has to do with cold objects. Ex. Ice Cubes
1) Coldplay fan: How's it going chum? I like Coldplay, very great in my opinion.
Radiohead fan: Oh that's understandable, I personally enjoy Radiohead more.
Coldplay fan: Well that's cool.

Coldplay/Radiohead FANATIC: OH FUCK HELL YES, Coldplay/Radiohead FUCKING ROCKS! I MASTURBATE DAILY TO THEIR AWESONE VOICES! Coldplay/Radiohead COMPLETELY FUCKING SUCKS COMPARED TO THEM. I'M GONNA GO SMOKE MY MARIJUANA NOWS KTHXBAI

Coldplay&Radiohead fans: STFU HITLER-TITTY-SUCKING NEO-NAZI GO TAKE A HAMMER TO YOUR DICK! GTFO, GO BACK TO YOUR Gurochan.net FUCKING FAG

2) I shove Icecubes up my urethra. Daily. It hurts to piss.

A fairly good band filled with a pretentious lead singer who named his daughter after a fruit.
"You know how I know you're gay... because you like Coldplay." - that guy from that movie about that other guy who didn't get any until he was 40.
