A Riveting Portrait of the Band Whose Award-Winning Debut Album Sold Nearly Five Million Units.

Author Biography

Martin Roach traces Coldplay's history from their self-financed early records through the hit albums-including Viva La Vida's collaboration with Brain Eno-to the present day. On the way he explores the band's professional insecurities, their chosen political causes and their unswerving commitment to retaining artistic control of the music.
