By 1997, the group, who had renamed themselves Starfish, performed gigs for local Camden promoters at small clubs.[11] Martin also had recruited his longtime school friend Phil Harvey, who was studying classics at Oxford, to be the band's manager.[12] .Coldplay have since accepted Harvey as the fifth member of the group.^ Also, why the hell was he dressed a cross between a sassy chef and the fifth member of Coldplay ?

[13] The band's lineup was completed when Will Champion joined to take up percussion duties. Champion had grown up playing piano, guitar, bass, and tin whistle; he quickly learned the drums, despite having no previous experience.[10] The band finally settled on the name "Coldplay" which was suggested by Tim Crompton, a local student who had been using the name for his group.[13] By 1997, Martin had also met then Classics student Tim Rice-Oxley. During a weekend on Virginia Water, they asked each other to play off their own songs on the piano. .Martin, finding Rice-Oxley to be talented, asked him to be Coldplay's keyboard player but Rice-Oxley refused as his own band (Keane) was already operational.^ CHRIS MARTIN: Coldplay is for people with great taste, intelligence, incredible good lookingness, talent, ability, success, grabbing of life.

In 1998, the band released 500 copies of the Safety EP.[15] Most of the discs were given to record companies and friends; only 50 copies remained for sale to the public. In December of that year, Coldplay signed to the independent label Fierce Panda.[15] Their first release was the three-track Brothers and Sisters EP, which they had quickly recorded over four days in February 1999.[15]
After completing their final examinations, Coldplay signed to Parlophone for a five-album contract in the spring of 1999.[16] After making their first appearance at Glastonbury, the band went into studio to record a third EP titled The Blue Room.[17] Five thousand copies were made available to the public in October,[18] and the single "Bigger Stronger", received BBC Radio 1 airplay. The recording sessions for The Blue Room were tumultuous. .Martin kicked Champion out of the band but later pleaded with him to return, and because of his guilt, went on a drinking binge.^ Also, Martin attacked that paparazzo outside the hospital because his wife just had a miscarriage and the guy said “congratulations” to him!

Following the Viva la Vida Tour, Coldplay announced another "Latin America Tour" to take place in February and March of 2010, in which they will visit countries such as Mexico, Argentina, Brazil and Colombia.[77] In October 2009, Coldplay won Song of the Year for "Viva la Vida" at The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) Awards in London.[78]

Musical style

Coldplay's musical style has been defined as alternative rock, being compared to Radiohead and Oasis.[81][82] .Lead singer/songwriter Chris Martin once labelled the band's music as "limestone rock".[83] The band's music has been called "meditative" and "blue romantic"; it "[reflects] on their emotions" and Martin "endlessly examine[s] his feelings".[84] Martin's lyrical wordplay has been called feminist, similar to Andrew Montgomery of Geneva.^ CHRIS MARTIN: Now I feel kind of...

[82]
The tone of the band's first studio album, Parachutes, was described as melodic pop with "distorted guitar riffs and swishing percussion".[82] It was also described as being "exquisitely dark and artistically abrasive".[82] In a review for A Rush of Blood to the Head, the songs were considered to contain "lush melodies and a heartbreak" and that they had a "newfound confidence."[85] The music on X&Y has been considered to be "ruminations on Martin's doubts, fears, hopes, and loves."[84] Coldplay acknowledge the Scottish alternative rock band, Travis, as a major influence on their earlier material.[86]

Activism and commercial endorsements

Despite Coldplay's worldwide popularity, the band has remained protective of how their music is used in the media, refusing its use for product endorsements. .In the past, Coldplay turned down multi-million dollar contracts from Gatorade, Diet Coke, and Gap, who wanted to use the songs "Yellow", "Trouble", and "Don't Panic" respectively.^ When we're playing music I don't think there's anybody, you know, I don't want to be anywhere else in the world and I'm proud of it to the nth degree because that's who I am, you know?

Lyrics

Parachutes (2000)

her i am and i take my time here i am and i wait in line always.. always..
Bones, sinking like stones
All that we fought for
Homes, places we've grown
All of us are done for
And we live in a beautiful world
Yeah we do, yeah we do
We live in a beautiful world
But on and on, from the moment I wake
'Till the moment I sleep
I'll be there by your side
Just you try and stop me
I'll be waiting in line
Just to see if you care, if you care
Oh, did you want me to change?
Well I changed for good
And I want you to know
That you'll always get your way
I wanted to say
Don't you shiver
Don't you shiver
I sing it loud and clear
I'll always be waiting for you
  • Spies
I awake to see that no one is free
We're all fugitives
Look at the way we live
Down here, I cannot sleep from fear, no
I said, which way do I turn
Oh, I forget everything I learn
That the spies came out of the water
But you're feeling so bad cause you know
Though spies hide out in every corner
But you can't touch them, no
'Cause they're all spies
  • Sparks
.Did I drive you away?^ Did you know right away.

.I know what you’ll say
You say, “Oh, sing one we know,”
But I promise you this
I’ll always look out for you
That’s what I’ll do.
^ One of the things prices means you're out on -- you're not even finished with -- Stewart here already working on her next album.

Your skin
Oh yeah your skin and bones
Turn into something beautiful
You know, you know I love you so
You know I love you so
I swam across
I jumped across for you
Oh what a thing to do
Cause you were all yellow
Oh no, I see
A spider web is tangled up with me
And I lost my head
The thought of all the stupid things I said
Oh no what's this?
A spider web, and I'm caught in the middle,
So I turned to run
The thought of all the stupid things I've done
I never meant to cause you trouble
And I never meant to do you wrong
And I, well if I ever caused you trouble
Oh no, I never meant to do you harm

A Rush of Blood to the Head (2002)

oh im gonna buy this place and see it burn took back the things it did to you in return oh.oh.oh he said im gonna buy a gun and start a war..♪♫
  • Politik
Give me one, 'cause one is best
In confusion, confidence
Give me peace of mind and trust
Don't forget the rest of us
Give me strength, reserve control
Give me heart and give me soul
Wounds that heal and cracks that fix
Tell me your own politik
Sing it please, please, please
Come back and sing to me
To me, me
Come on and sing it out, now, now
Come on and sing it out
To me, me
Come back and sing
In my place, in my place
Were lines that I couldn't change
I was lost, oh yeah
Oh yeah
Where do we go, nobody knows
I've got to say I'm on my way down
God give me style and give me grace
God put a smile upon my face
Where do we go to draw the line
I've got to say I wasted all your time
Oh honey honey
Where do I go to fall from grace
God put a smile upon your face yeah
I had to find you
Tell you I need you
Tell you I set you apart
Tell me your secrets
And ask me your questions
Oh let's go back to the start
Running in circles
Coming up tails
Heads on a silence apart
Nobody said it was easy
It's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Oh take me back to the start
The lights go out and I can't be saved
Tides that I tried to swim against
Have brought me down upon my knees
Oh, I beg, I beg and plead
  • Green Eyes
Honey you are a rock
Upon which I stand
And I come here to talk
I hope you understand
  • Warning Sign
A warning sign
You came back to haunt me and I realised
That you were an island and I passed you by
When you were an island to discover
Come on in
I've got to tell you what a state I'm in
I've got to tell you in my loudest tones
That I started looking for a warning sign
  • A Whisper
I hear the sound of the ticking of clocks
Who remembers your face
Who remember you when you are gone
I hear the sound of the ticking of clocks
Come back and look for me, look for me
When I am lost
  • A Rush of Blood to the Head
He said I'm gonna buy a gun and start a war
If you can tell me something worth fighting for
Oh and I'm gonna buy this place that's what I said
Blame it upon a rush of blood to the head
Honey, all the movements you're starting to make
See me crumble and fall on my face
And I know the mistakes that I made
See it all disappear without a trace
And they call as they beckon you on
They said start as you mean to go on
Start as you mean to go on
  • Amsterdam
Come on, oh my star is fading
And I swerve out of control
If I, if I'd only waited
I'd not be stuck here in this hole
Come here, oh my star is fading
And I swerve out of control
And I swear I waited and waited
I've got to get out of this hole

Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends (2006–present)

  • Cemeteries of London
God is in the houses
And God is in my head
And all the cemeteries of London
I see God come in my garden
But I don’t know what he said
For my heart it wasn’t open
Not open
Just because I'm losing
Doesn't mean I'm lost
Doesn't mean I'll stop
Doesn't mean I'm across
Those who are dead are not dead
They're just living in my head
And since I fell for that spell
I am living there as well
Time is so short and I’m sure
There must be something more
  • Lovers in Japan
Lovers, keep on the road you're on
Runners until the race is run
Soldiers, you've got to soldier on
Sometimes even the right is wrong
I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own
I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy’s eyes
Listened as the crowd would sing
Now the old king is dead, long live the king
One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand
I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing
Roman cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
Missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
Once you'd gone there was never
Never an honest word
And that was when I ruled the world
Was a long and dark December
From the rooftops I remember
There was snow, white snow
Clearly I remember
From the windows they were watching
While we froze down below
When the future's architectured
By a carnival of idiots on show
You better lie low
.If you love me
Won't you let me know?
^ Let us know what you think.

When it's such, it's such a perfect day
It's such a perfect day
Now the sky could be blue, I don't mind
Without you it's a waste of time
Could be blue, I don't mind
Without you, it's a waste of sky
Could be blue, could be grey
Without you I'm just miles away
Could be blue, I don't mind
Without you it's a waste of time
  • Death And All His Friends
No I don’t want to battle from beginning to end

We lie awake
And we dream
We'll make an escape
