The Global No. 1 Album Mylo Xyloto

Tops The Charts In 32 Countries

Coldplay Is The Musical Guest On This Week’s “Saturday Night Live”

This Saturday, November 12, Coldplay will make its fourth appearance as the musical guest on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” Emma Stone will be the host. The performance comes on the heels of the release of the band’s new album, Mylo Xyloto, which has charted at No. 1 in 32 countries to date. It also hit the No. 1 spot in all 35 iTunes stores around the world, breaking the record for the highest number of download sales in one week – a milestone Coldplay first achieved in 2008 with the release of Viva La Vida.

Mylo Xyloto (Capitol Records) is Coldplay’s third consecutive studio album to debut atop both The Billboard 200 and the U.K. album chart. The band’s previous studio albums ranked in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Catalog Albums chart – Viva La Vida (2008) at No. 3*, Parachutes (2000) at No. 4*, X&Y (2005) at No. 5* and A Rush of Blood to the Head (2002) at No. 6*,

Chris Martin appeared on “The Howard Stern Show” yesterday and Coldplay will perform on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” on Wednesday, December 7,

A special limited edition pop-up version of Mylo Xyloto is available now to order on www.coldplay.com. It will contain a 12″ x 12″ hardback book with 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. Fans who purchase the limited edition pop-up album at www.coldplay.com will be able to download an MP3 version of Mylo Xyloto as soon as their order is complete.

“Music this uplifting, this inspirational belongs among the stars,” said Q Magazine, awarding the album five stars. “Mylo Xyloto works because the band once again manages to sound like Coldplay without sounding like any of their previous LPs, maintaining their stadium-spanning grandeur while subtly challenging preconceptions,” said Pitchfork.com. “Like 2008′s horizon-broadening Viva La Vida, Mylo Xyloto draws from an expansive palette,” said SPIN while Rolling Stone praised it as “[Coldplay’s] most ambitious yet.”

Coldplay – comprising Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland, Will Champion and Chris Martin – 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. The band’s last album, Viva La Vida was the No. 1 selling album worldwide of 2008, according to IFPI.
