Coldplay is an English alternative rock band formed in 1996 by lead vocalist Chris Martin and lead guitarist Jonny Buckland at University College London. Guy Berryman joined the group as a bassist and they changed their name to Starfish. Will Champion joined as a drummer, backing vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist, completing the lineup. Manager Phil Harvey is often considered an unofficial fifth member. The band renamed themselves “Coldplay” in 1998, before recording and releasing three EPs, “Safety” in 1998, “Brothers & Sisters” as a single in 1999 and “The Blue Room” in the same year. The latter was their first release on a major label, after signing to Parlophone....
