We all know the lyrics, the songs but there’re things you don’t know about this stunning band.

Check it out:
1. Before Coldplay were Coldplay, the band were known as Starfish.

2What music influences Chris Martin?
He’s a big fan of Echo & The Bunnymen, listen:

3. Coldplay released their first full-length album, “Parachutes,”  which featured the single “Yellow.” in 2002.  It sold over 2 million copies in the U.S. and it won “Best Alternative Music Album” at the 2002 Grammy Awards.

4. What is the tattoo on Chris Martin’s hand?
Actually, it’s not a tattoo, he writes on there prior to every show.  The “equals” sign represents Make Trade Fair, an organisation that works to find “lasting solutions to poverty and injustice.”
