* BackToFront: The music video for "The Scientist" has a reverse narrative, starting at the end of the story and concluding at the beginning with every scene shown backwards.



** Apparently their new album ''Ghost Stories'' is one as well. Taking partial inspiration from Chris' rocky relationship with his wife Gwyneth Paltrow (at least at the time of the album recording), the album revolves around a man going through dramatic and sudden breakup, with the tracks representing the man's state of mind leading up to his eventual acceptance of the situation.

* DarkerAndEdgier: The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gf0njGOJ1o original European music video for "Trouble"]], which has Chris singing while tied to a chair in a dark warehouse juxtaposed with footage of the rest of the band members; to specify, Buckland and Champion forcing Berryman into being tied to a chair of his own.
* DreamTeam:
** Them and Rihanna on "Princess Of China".
** Them and Beyonce on "Hymn For The Weekend".

** And of course, "Viva la Vida" (the song, not the album). The lyrics are ''not'' as happy as the melody suggests.

* SurrealMusicVideo: The video for "Paradise", which has Chris in an elephant suit escaping a zoo in London, trying to hitchhike his way to another country, stowing away inside a suitcase to South Africa, getting enough money to buy a unicycle, and finding the rest of Coldplay off the side of the road who are also wearing elephant suits. And then they all play together in elephant suits. After that, it cuts to footage of the band in an ''actual'' live concert playing while wearing the elephant heads and hands. [[FlatWhat What.]]
** Taken UpToEleven with the video for Up&Up, where they take the whole surreal factor to a whole another level, which includes Chris Martin and the band being absolute giants and lying on mountains and islands, a football match being played on a sponge, a volcano spewing popcorn, a boat travelling over New York, a plane dropping the solar system via parachute, horses galloping on water, a butterfly lying on a oil rig, dolphins swimming while a city is upside down above them, a man sunbathing on the moon, a turtle swimming in a New York subway station, two skaters skating on the second stage of a Saturn V rocket, a diver diving 30,000 feet in the bloody air, skiers skiing on a bed pillow, two planes flying either up or down with mountains above them and water below them, a man ironing on top of clouds, cars racing on the rings of Saturn, seals flying over New York, divers diving sideways off a building while walking sidways and a kid on a swing that is being suspended from ''the International Space Station''! [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs Were they high when they made this, or something?]]

** The video for "The Scientist" has a very unorthodox storytelling style: ''[[BackToFront it's entirely in reverse]]'', and tells a story in backwards order. Throughout the video, Chris is shown singing the lyrics properly in the reversed footage; it reportedly took him a month to learn the song backwards.
** The video for "Midnight" was filmed entirely (save for the ending) using a thermal infrared camera with negative imagery with a whole slew of visual effects on top of that.

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: They are around a 2, sometimes dropping down to 1 and going up to 3. They very rarely go beyond a 3. However, songs like "1.36" and "Chinese Football Slant" arguably reaches a 5.

'''Coldplay''' is an acclaimed [[UsefulNotes/{{Britain}} British]] alternative rock group who, after several low-key releases, hit the big time in 2000 with the single "Yellow". The following album, ''Music/{{Parachutes}}'' (2000), debuted at number 1 in the UK, won a Grammy and has since gone multi-platinum worldwide. The follow-ups, ''Music/ARushOfBloodToTheHead'' (2002), and ''X&Y'' (2005), continued the commercial and critical success -- though they also gave the band a reputation for their songs sounding too similar (the singles "Speed of Sound" and "Clocks" being frequently singled out for comparison).
