Capturing the world s attention with their soulful songs, Coldplay burst onto the music scene in 2000. Their debut album, Parachutes, and its 2002 successor, A Rush of Blood to the Head, stunned fans with their haunting beauty and cathartic emotion. In Coldplay: Look at the Stars, Phil O Brien charts the ascension of one of the greatest rock bands in the world today. This fascinatingly introspective account tells how a band led by an introverted, self-confessed geek struck an emotional chord with their audience. The book also focuses on the effect fame and media intrusion has had on the band as they reach for the stars. With the success of recent albums X&Y and Viva La Vida, Coldplay continue to prove that they will never stop shining.
