8. Sky Full of Stars

Year: 2014

Album: Ghost Stories

Chris Martin about Sky Full of Stars said on Fuse: “What that song represents on Ghost Stories is the release after you’ve climbed the mountain – after you’ve done anything challenging. That’s why that song is so unashamedly happy and danceable: because that’s what it needed to be. I love singing it. I know we didn’t break the mold, but it’s just so fun to play.”

This song was co-written and co-produced by Avicii, and was Coldplay’s first dance track with EDM and House influences. Perfect for anyone in a party mood!

Hymn for the Weekend was the talk of the town and an instant hit.

4. Viva La Vida

Year: 2008

Album: Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends

This song has the distinction of being not only the band’s only Number One hit on Billboard’s Hot 100 sales chart, but also the first Number One single by a British group since 1996. It was written by all 4 members of the band, and both the song and the artwork follows a theme of revolutionaries and guerrillas. It was the title track and single from their fourth studio album, 2008’s Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends — named after a Spanish phrase meaning “Live the life” and featuring an album cover of a painting of a battle from the French Revolution

 

3. The Scientist

Year: A Rush of Blood to the Head

Album: 2002

One of the most beautiful songs about love and regret, this song still manages to give us goosebumps each time we hear it. Did you know that the video was shot normal direction and then played backwards, while Chris sang the lyrics to the song backwards. It is one of those songs you just want to sob to when loves gets too hard.

 

2. Yellow

Year: 2000

Album: Parachutes

This is where where it all began, with their very first Top 10. Coldplay’s breakthrough hit went straight in at Number 4 and was taken from their debut album Parachutes, which has sold over 2.6 million copies. Yellow is one of the most romantic songs of all time, and the soulful lyrics will make the strongest disbeliever of love believe in it.

 

1. Fix You

Year: 2005

Album: X&Y

Probably Coldplay’s most famous songs, Fix You was released in 2005, and has shifted over 679,000 copies. It was supposedly written by Chris Martin for Gwyneth Paltrow on her father’s passing. The death inspired this song – it is about grief and coming into terms with a loss of a loved one. The lyrics are still relatable for anyone going through a hard time in any phase of life, and our go to song on a bad day.
