English rock band Coldplay has steadily climbed the album charts since its 2000 debut single “Yellow,” becoming both a critical and commercial success. The group’s fourth studio album “Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends” won a total of three Grammy Awards, two specifically for the single “Viva la Vida.”

Coldplay’s popularity has made the band a staple on the world touring circuit over the past decade. The band’s most recent tours have been hot tickets, especially for the most recent tour supporting “Viva la Vida.” The popularity of its live performances has led the band to add multiple new legs to the tour to accommodate demand.
