The Top Ten

1 For their Mylo Xyloto tour, the band spent a reported 4.22 million to give out wristbands which changed colour in time with the music.

I didn't know this! But this is such a cool thing that they did!

2 Chris Martin had to learn to sing 'The Scientist' backwards for the video. He learned the phonetic movements to create the illusion he was singing the words correctly.
3 Coldplay wanted to create an animated film with the main character being Mylo Xyloto, but they realized this would take too long.
4 Chris Martin once travelled to Coldplay's show at the O2 by tube. He was surrounded by a lot of Coldplay fans, and nobody recognized him.

Aw, I like this. Just shows how down-to-Earth and modest he is. Could also be the fact that he looks just like hundreds of other British Men. - Britgirl

5 Coldplay bought a bakery in North London. It then became the Coldplay HQ.
6 Chris Martin claims he can speak ‘Devonian’, which he says is “farm language”.
7 Coldplay haven’t always been called ‘Coldplay’. Their original name was Starfish.

They were right to change it. - Britgirl

8 In 2009, Coldplay auctioned some memorabilia, and raised £251,482 for a children’s charity.

So kind of them

9 Chris Martin spent £400,000 on a piece of Bansky artwork at Sean Penn’s charity event, raising money for Haiti earthquake victims.

What a sweetheart

See? Chris is such a lovely fella! :). - Britgirl

10 They refer to their manager as their “secret fifth member no one sees”.
