Biography

Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland met at the University College London during their study years. At first, they formed the duo called Pectoralz, but later renamed the collective in Starfish after their school friend Guy Berryman joined the group. The trio started giving concerts in local small clubs. In the beginning of 1998, Will Champion entered the collective. Initially he was going to be the drummer, but after he learned how to play the drums, he became the guitarist, bassist and keyboardist for the band. Soon after Champion joined the command, it was renamed in Coldplay - the artists got this title from the other band that refused from it, considering it "too depressive". The same year, Coldplay recorded its first EP Safety, which brought the band the contract with the independent label Fierce Panda. By that moment the artists were finishing the college - they switched to major studio Parlophone after they graduated.

The Bigger Stronger single from The Blue Room EP, which followed the band's appearance at the Glastonbury festival, focused the attention of the British audience on the young command. However, the members of Coldplay had so many conflicts during the recording sessions of this EP that the band was on the brink of collapse. Luckily, the quartet managed to eliminate all the disagreements and concentrated on the work over the debut album. The first full-length of this rock command titled Parachutes became the hit not only in England, but also in the USA - after their support tour for Parachutes. The brightest hit from the album was melodic pop track Yellow. Coldplay's forceful comeback to Glastonbury became the pure triumph. By 2001, the musicians became the big stars on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. In August 2002, Coldplay finished the second long-play A Rush Of Blood To The Head with the lead single The Scientist. The album was followed by a tour.

In 2004, the members of Coldplay were seldom seen on public due to the record of their third studio attempt, devoted to the theme of love find and relations stability. In May 2004, Chris Martin and his wife, actress Gwyneth Paltrow, became the parents of their daughter Apple. In June 2004, the X&Y was released - it became the best-selling album of 2005 in the world. The album produced three piercing rock hits: Speed Of Sound, Fix You and Talk. After the third release, Coldplay went on the Twisted Logic Tour. The rockers also have recommended themselves as the regular guests of various charity festivals and social activists for different organizations. In April 2006, Martin became the father for the second time - Gwyneth gave birth to their son Moses. After the tour along the South America, Coldplay got down to the new record, baring the title of Viva La Vida. It was released in June 2008. Chris Martin stated that this album would differ from the previous works in its style. He also added that on the new disc he changed his falsetto in the favor of the lower range.
