The four Coldplay members Chris Martin (vocals/piano), Jonny Buckland (guitar), Will Champion (drums) and Guy Berryman (bass) all met at the University College of London (UCL) in 1996. They started performing under the name Pectoralz and then Starfish, but soon changed their name to Coldplay, which stuck. In 1999, the foursome signed a UK deal with Parlophone Records and soon released an E.P, the five-track Blue Room. 2000 saw the release of their single "Yellow" and things would never be the same for the band. The single climbed the charts all around the world and was soon followed by the Coldplay debut album Parachutes. The album debuted at number 1 in the UK and won a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album in 2002. Since then, Coldplay have gone from strength to strength and have released a further six albums, all of which have topped charts worldwide. The six further Coldplay albums are A Rush of Blood to the Head (2002), X&Y (2005), Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends (2008), Mylo Xyloto (2011), Ghost Stories (2014) and 2015's A Head Full of Dreams.
