MYLO XYLOTO,

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 12, 2011

MYLO XYLOTO,

THE NEW STUDIO ALBUM FROM COLDPLAY,

SET FOR OCTOBER 25th U.S. RELEASE

Coldplay’s fifth studio album, Mylo Xyloto (pronounced my-lo zy-letoe), will be released in the U.S. on October 25th by Capitol Records. Produced by Markus Dravs, Daniel Green and Rik Simpson, with enoxification and additional composition by Brian Eno, Mylo Xyloto follows 2008’s Viva La Vida, which charted at No. 1 in 36 countries, including the United States and the United Kingdom.

Mylo Xyloto will be released in digital, CD and vinyl formats. The 180-gram vinyl edition will include a 12” x 36” poster. A special limited edition Pop-Up Album version will also be available, which will include a 12″ x 12″ hardback book containing graffiti pop-up art designed by David A. Carter, vinyl, CD and exclusive content including photographs, excerpts from the studio diary and the band’s personal notebooks. The “reversible” cover art was just revealed at HYPERLINK “http://coldplay.com” http://coldplay.com. Half of the CDs will be packaged with the full color artwork as the cover while the other 50% will have the CD booklet flipped, showing the silver initials “M X” via a die-cut sheet placed over the color image.

“Paradise,” the follow-up to Coldplay’s current single, “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall,” will be released as a commercial single on September 12th. It will ship to radio the same day.

Coldplay – comprising Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland, Will Champion and Chris Martin – is featured on the cover of the latest issue of Billboard, which is out today. The band has sold more than 50 million records worldwide and won numerous awards, including seven GRAMMY® Awards, six Brit Awards and four MTV Video Music Awards.
