|Net Worth:||$650 Million|
Safety was Coldplay’s debut extended play, and it was published independently by the band in 1998. After the band got a contract with Parlophone in 1999, they changed their name to The Blue Room. In the same year, “Brothers & Sisters” made its first appearance on the UK Singles Chart at position number 92.
The first single from Parachutes, titled “Shiver” was released to the public in March of the year 2000. It was the band’s first entry into the Top 40, and it was followed by “Yellow” which reached its highest position at number four and is generally regarded as the band’s breakout smash.
Coldplay is a rock band hailing from the United Kingdom and was established in London in 1997. Chris Martin, who sings and plays the piano, is a member of the band, along with Jonny Buckland on guitar, Guy Berryman on bass, Will Champion on drums, and Phil Harvey, who is the creative director. They got to know each other at University College London and started making music together between the years 1996 and 1998.
At first, they went under the name Starfish. Today, Coldplay are one of the most successful musical groups of all time, as evidenced by the fact that they have sold a total of one hundred million CDs around the world.
According to Fuse, they are the sixth-most honored group in the history of music, including holding the record for the most nominations and wins for a band at the Brit Awards. Other noteworthy accomplishments include having the seventh-highest grossing tour of all time, having three of the United Kingdom’s top 50 best-selling albums, having the most number-one albums in the country without ever falling out of the top spot, and being the first British group to make their debut at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The band’s second studio album, titled A Rush of Blood to the Head, was released on August 26, 2002. In comparison to the sales of the band’s first studio album, A Rush of Blood to the Head saw far better success, topping the charts in 11 countries throughout the globe. In order to promote the album, Coldplay released the singles “In My Place” “The Scientist” and “Clocks” all of which have made it into the top ten of the UK Singles Chart.
Coldplay are known for being extremely defensive of how their content is portrayed in the media, despite the fact that they have achieved global success. The band gives permission for their songs to be used in movies and television shows on a regular basis, but they only do so extremely infrequently for ads. It was alleged in 2002 that they passed up business opportunities worth more than $85 million from firms such as Gatorade, Diet Coke, and Gap.
Mylo Xyloto, the band’s fifth studio album, was then made available to the public on October 24, 2011, and it followed in the success of its predecessors by going to number one in 34 countries. Additionally, “Paradise” became the most successful rock song of the year and their second chart-topper in the United Kingdom.
It was the group album that had the most sales in 2011, as reported by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI). On November 21, 2012, following a performance in Brisbane, Australia as a part of the group’s Mylo Xyloto Tour, Coldplay dropped hints that they were going to take a three-year sabbatical from touring after the show.
The Mylo Xyloto Tour came to a close with two gigs that Coldplay co-headlined with Jay-Z at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on the 30th of December and New Year’s Eve. More than 171.3 million dollars were made from the sale of tickets during the Mylo Xyloto Tour in 2012, making it the fourth-highest profitable tour in the world that year.
Later, with their album Ghost Stories, which was released on May 19, 2014, Coldplay achieved the same level of success. The band’s seventh studio album, titled A Head Full of Dreams, was released on December 4, 2015, making it the record holder for the band’s shortest gap between two of their records. It saw a comeback in sales following their performance at the Super Bowl 50 halftime show, eventually selling over six million copies, despite the fact that Adele‘s 25 was primarily responsible for keeping it from reaching number one around the world.
They concluded the A Head Full of Dreams Tour in November of 2017, which is presently the seventh-highest grossing tour of all time. In November of 2017, the A Head Full of Dreams Tour came to a successful conclusion. After bringing in more than $523 million, it was ranked as the third highest-grossing concert tour of all time when it was completed in 2017. On December 7, 2018, the live CD that was promised, which is named Live in Buenos Aires, was finally released.
Next, in 2021, Coldplay set a new record by performing as the festival’s headlining act for a record-extending fifth time. During the same year, “My Universe” made history by becoming the first song ever released by a British group to enter the Billboard Hot 100 chart at number one. They became the fifth band in history to accomplish this accomplishment in 2022, following in the footsteps of Bon Jovi, Eagles, The Rolling Stones, and U2. Their touring gross topped $1 billion, which was achieved with the sale of 12 million tickets at 456 reported gigs.
