Coldplay has won numerous music awards throughout their history, including six Brit Awards—winning Best British Group three times, four MTV Video Music Awards, and seven Grammy Awards from twenty nominations. 2009 was their most successful year having received seven Grammy Award nominations at the 51st Grammy Awards, and won three. As one of the world's best-selling music artists, Coldplay have sold over 50 million records worldwide.
Frontman Chris Martin once proclaimed the band's music as "limestone rock" in comparison to "hard rock." The band's music has been called "meditative" and "blue romantic"; it "reflects on their emotions" and Martin "endlessly examines his feelings".
Coldplay's live performances during their 2002 / 2003 tour were noted for its heavy use of strobe lighting. They visited five continents, including co-headlining festival dates at Glastonbury Festival and Werchter.
The DVD was recorded live in Paris during this tour and shows the band at their very best!
