I don’t even want to think about a world without Coldplay in it. They have been giving us great music since the release of their breakout hit, “Yellow” in 2000, and it’s only been a steady stream of good songs ever since then. “The Scientist”, “Viva La Vida”, “Paradise”, “Clocks”, and their collaboration with Electronic music DJ Avicii, “A Sky Full of Stars”. That is just to name a few, too. 


The most recognizable face of the band Coldplay is the lead singer and pianist, Chris Martin. He has collaborated with loads of other artists as well: Rihanna, Kanye West, Jay Z and Nelly Furtado. Chris Martin has a gift that is rare and natural: he says songs “just come to him, sometimes”, which basically shows he’s a musical genius. Coldplay as a whole will definitely go down as one of the best bands of the millennium. Their music is appealing because it’s just good and relatable to a mass population.


Their latest album, Ghost Stories, came out last year and many felt a lot of the music was inspired by the breakdown of Chris Martin’s marriage to Gwyneth Paltrow. Chris Martin had subtly confirmed this by saying in a past interview, “it was influenced by a recent hard time in his life”. The album is unique because it still has that traditional “Coldplay sound” but it’s also a departure from their own sound as well because of the incorporation of newer music trends (i.e.- Electronic Dance Music). 


What's even more exciting is that we may getting new Coldplay music very very soon. Chris Marting confirmed that we can expect their 7th album comes out December 4th  and the album is called "A Head Full of Dreams".  Their first single, Adventure of a Lifetime was already released. Chris Martin says this is more of a "colorful" album and you can really hear that in this new song. Seems like Chris Martin has finally gotten over Gwyneth!
