Chris Martin is the talented lead singer of Coldplay. Coldplay came together as a band in late 1997 when Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland, Will Champion and Chris Martin met at University College, London.
Since then the band have become one of the most popular music acts on the planet, selling more than 60 million copies of their six Number One albums. They’ve also filled their trophy cabinet with almost every major music award there is (including seven Grammys and eight BRITs).
With a reputation for spectacular live shows, Coldplay have circled the planet many times over, playing their life-affirming songs to an ever-increasing army of fans in every corner of the planet.
The band’s most recent world tour, the 2011/12 Mylo Xyloto tour, was seen by more than three million people in five continents. In May 2014, Coldplay released their sixth studio album, the lovelorn Ghost Stories, which was heralded by SPIN as containing “some of their finest, most understated work in over a decade.”
