About Chris Martin
As for the day, Chris Martin net worth is estimated to be $90 million and I think he is worth every little bit of this fortune. I might be a little biased, though, because Martin is one of my favorite musicians. Hence, I like to think that he was absolutely right when he said: “Coldplay fans are the best in the world. If you like Coldplay then you’re obviously very intelligent and good looking and all-around brilliant.“ Throughout his lengthy career with the rock band Coldplay, Martin has released 7 studio albums, 4 live albums, 6 compilation albums, 11 extended plays (EPs), as much as 40 singles, 36 music videos and 2 video albums. Although their commercial success differed significantly, each of these products contributed to Chris Martin net worth. In the following paragraphs I will discuss his career and income in greater detail.
I guess it is safe to say that one of the most important persons in Martins life, who encouraged him not to let his talent for music go to waste was his mother Alison Martin, who worked as a music teacher. However, the future rock star did not choose to study music professionally. Instead he entered University College London, from which he graduated with first-class honors degree in Greek and Latin. I think academic choice, the choice of college, was particularly important and had a huge influence on his future career, but not in a direct fashion. The reason I‘m saying this – it was back at University College London that Chris met his close friends and now band mates, Guy Berryman, Will Champion and Jonny Buckland.
The band Coldplay ascended to stardom in the early 2000s, when its album Parachutes was released. It charted all over the world and topped the charts in a few English speaking countries, including United Kingdom, Ireland and New Zealand. Parachutes distributed 2.7 million copies in the United States and almost as much in the United Kingdom. Worldwide, it sold 8.5 million copies. Needless to say, the success of this album meant an increase in Chris Martin net worth. When speaking about the factors that turned Coldplay into one of the most popular bands in the world, it‘s leading singer and songwriter (Martin), said: „A band’s only unique thing is its chemistry, especially if none of you are prodigious players or particularly handsome. The one thing you have is your uniqueness, so we hold on to that“.
Parachutes was an unforgettable album, but it was released fifteen years ago. And what about the more recent sources of Chris Martin net worth? In 2014 Coldplay released its seventh and so far the latest studio album, Ghost Stories. Although it‘s sales weren‘t as high as those of Parachutes or Mylo Xyloto (band‘s next-to-last album), Ghost Stories sold 3.7 million copies worldwide, making the members of Coldplay once again richer.
