Coldplay net worth is currently estimated at $475 million and although this is a huge sum, this should not surprise us. After all, we are talking about one of the most commercially successful bands in the world.
Coldplay ascended to stardom in 2000, with the album Parachutes and since then has released 6 studio albums more, 4 live albums, 6 compilation albums, a couple of video albums, 11 extended plays (EP‘s), 40 amazing singles and 36 music videos. Since its formation the band has sold more than 80 million albums in the world and each of them has considerably increased Coldplay net worth. And yet not so long ago Chris Martin, the band‘s leading singer, has mentioned that the album A Head Full of Dreams, which is scheduled to reach the shops this year, might mark an end of an era: “The way we look at it is like, the last Harry Potter book, or something (…) Not to say that there might not be another thing one day, but this is the completion of something” – said the artist to Zane Lowe. It might be a little harsh to interpret these worlds as an indication about the split of the band, but it sure means that something is about to change. Before it happens, let‘s discuss the sources of Coldplay net worth while this band is still the same music entity we came to know and love.
As we have already mentioned, the band gained worldwide recognition in 2000, as it released the album Parachutes. With singles we all know, like “Shiver” and „Yellow“, the album garnered a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album and distributed more than 8 million copies. The bands second album, titled A Rush of Blood to the Head , was even more successful commercially (it sold over 19 million copies worldwide) and received a widespread critical acclaim. For example, The Guardian wrote that “It sounds like an album ready to take on the world, and win“, while Rolling Stone commented: “where Parachutes was the clumsy diary of a high-strung kid, A Rush of Blood sounds more like a band with the confidence to test its own limits.“
Needless to say, A Rush of Blood to the Head and the following tour have significantly contributed to the growth of Coldplay net worth. In fact, it was the most commercially successful of all the albums the band has ever released. But this does not mean that the rest of Coldplay‘s records did not fare well. X&Y, which was released in 2005, sold 13 million copies, Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends- 10 million, Mylo Xyloto – 8 million and Ghost Stories – close to 4 million. I can‘t wait to see if their next album, A Head Full of Dreams, will be just as popular!
