Coldplay recently took home three awards at the 2009 Grammy's for Song of The Year "Viva La Vida", Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals "Viva La Vida" as well as Best Rock Album.
The members of Coldplay-singer Chris Martin, bassist Guy Berryman, guitarist Jon Buckland and drummer, Will Champion-began playing music together while attending the University College of London. Today, the band's emotionally resonant, catchy rock songs have gained them a massive, worldwide following. Coldplay's first full-length album, Parachutes, was released in 2000 and brought the band great critical acclaim in both the U.K. and the U.S. In 2002, the band released their second album, A Rush of Blood to the Head, which surpassed the success of Parachutes and established the British group as internationally recognized rock stars. After a three-year wait, the band released X&Y in 2005. "Yellow," "Clocks" and "Speed of Sound" are just a few of the hit songs from Coldplay's highly acclaimed career.
Viva La Vida, Coldplay's most recent album, was released last year by Capitol Music Group. Produced by Brian Eno and Markus Dravs, the record is the follow-up to 2005's X&Y, which debuted at #1 in 32 countries and has sold 10 million copies worldwide to date.
"[Lead singer Chris] Martin broods over a lost lover with a snarling acidity that makes him sound more human than ever - miles away from the dreamy romantic he was on soaring ballads like 'Speed of Sound,'" said Rolling Stone, naming "Violet Hill" a must-have in a recent "Downloads" column. "Jonny Buckland rips jagged, bluesy riffs that match Martin's mood while drummer Will Champion and bassist Guy Berryman maintain a stalking beat.primal rock & roll." The Los Angeles Times pronounced the single a "promising return," also marveling at its harder edge.
