The band was founded in 1996 by Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Will Champion and Guy Berryman under the name "Starfish". They took the name Coldplay from the band of Martins room neighbors, because they wanted to rename themselves.

Coldpaly only succeeded in doing this in Germany with their second album, "A Rush Of Blood To The Head", which was also top in Switzerland, reaching number five in the US Billboard charts. The album also received two Grammys in the categories "Best Song" and "Best Alternative Album".
In 2005 the band made an appearance at the Live 8 concert. Coldplay also received an MTV Europe Music Award for the best song that year, thanks to the title "Speed Of Sound".

With the single "Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall" the band gave their fans a foretaste of their fifth studio album "Mylo Xyloto", which was released on October 24th, 2011. Two and a half years later, on May 16, 2014, the album "Ghost Stories" was released.
