An Epic End To Saturday

Coldplay are one of the world's biggest bands, and there's no doubt that their back catalogue includes some of the biggest choruses ever written. The late night Balado crowd love a sing-along finish, and Coldplay have the songs to do the damage.

It’s eight years since Chris Martin's men last appeared in this slot. It was 2003 and they were right at the top of their game, their second album having topped the charts worldwide. 2005's "X and Y" added to their canon of epic emotional rock standards.

The first single from their much anticipated fifth album, “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall” went straight into the UK charts at number six, and fans look forward to hearing how master knob twiddler Brian Eno's influence has shaped the band's intriguing new directions for a second time.
