Coldplay head to LA this month as they kick off the Citi Sound Vault series at the Hollywood Palladium! Surfacing in 2000 with the breakthrough single "Yellow," Coldplay quickly became one of the biggest British bands of the new millennium, honing a mix of introspective Brit-pop and anthemic rock that landed the British quartet a near-permanent residence on record charts worldwide.
From Parachutes to everyday life
The group's emergence was perfectly timed; Radiohead had just released the overly cerebral "Kid A", while Oasis had ditched two founding members and embraced psychedelic experimentation on "Standing on the Shoulder of Giants". UK audiences were hungry for a fresh-faced rock band with big aspirations and an even bigger sound, and Coldplay were more than happy to take the reins. "Parachutes" went multi-platinum in several countries and earned the band its first Grammy, but Coldplay continued to grow into the 00s, topping their debut album's success with higher record sales and an increased public profile.
Coldplay have gone on to become one of the world's most enduringly popular bands, selling over 70 million records worldwide. The four-piece released their eighth studio album, "Everyday Life", in 2019 landing them another number one record!
