Coldplay facts:

Who are the people behind the band Coldplay?

The four band members Chris Martin (vocals, piano, guitar), Jonny Buckland (guitar), Will Champion (drums) and Guy Berryman (bass, keyboard) met at University in London and founded their first band Starfish in 1996. As Starfish the friends even played smaller shows in London.

Why is Coldplay so successful?

That Coldplay can be pretty uncool at times is not only the opinion of many music snobs - the band members have even admitted that themselves. Right from the start, the four musicians laid down strict rules for the band, including an absolute ban on drugs. Despite everything, the British band fills stadiums all over the world and writes songs with choruses that are remembered by literally everyone. That's probably their secret recipe: Writing songs for the masses, which everyone can sing along to, putting in a lot of feelings and giving absolutely everything on their live shows. Despite their success, Coldplay has remained modest and that's not only appreciated by the fans. Famous musicians like Jay Z, Kanye West or Chance the Rapper have already covered Coldplay or worked with Coldplay.

How many Coldplay albums are there?

Already the band's very first album "Parachutes" was a great success and was critically acclaimed all over the world. The album won a Grammy Award in the category "Best Alternative Music Album" in 2001 and stayed in the British Top Ten for 33 weeks. This success was the launch of Coldplay's further career.
Coldplay's second album "A Rush of Blood to the Head" was released in 2002 and outperformed its debut with two Grammy Awards and over 13 million copies sold. "X&Y", the band's third album, seamlessly continued this success. For "Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends" the band hired co-producer Brian Eno. The style of the album differs considerably from its predecessors, but was nevertheless extremely successful. Coldplay released a total of seven studio albums, the last one being "A Head Full of Dreams" in 2015. All albums reached number one on the UK album charts.

Will Coldplay ever go on tour again?

Some time ago front man Chris Martin announced that the past A Head Full of Dreams tour would be the band's last. In an interview in 2018, Dave Holmes, the band's manager, however confirmed that Coldplay is taking a break until 2021 to write new songs and prepare something special for the fans. This means that you will most likely be able to experience Coldplay live again in 2021.

How much do Coldplay tickets cost?

Since Coldplay is one of the most successful and popular bands in the world, tickets for their concerts are accordingly demanded and sold out extremely quickly. If you want to experience Coldplay live, you have to be prepared to dig deep into your pocket. It could happen that tickets cost around 200€ - 300€. But if you are early and get a ticket from the first sales wave, you can expect a price around 70€ - 90€.
