The Early Years of Coldplay Band

Before we talk about the new Coldplay tour that will soon to come, let’s talk some more about the band first here.

What do you think of its early years? This band’s history started from the meeting between Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland as new students at University College London in 1996.

Both of them than planned to form a band by the name Pectoralz. Soon, their classmate named Guy Berryman joined the band.

In 1997, the band name was changed to Starfish, and they performed gigs at small clubs. Phil Harvey was then recruited as the band’s manager.

With Will Champion joining them, this band was completed. Then, they decided to settle on the name “Coldplay” for the band after being suggested, Tim Crompton.

  • In 1997, Tim Rice-Oxley was asked to join the band, but he refused because his band was already active.
  • In 1998, Coldplay released 500 copies of the Safety EP. In December, it signed to Fierce Panda and released Brothers and Sisters EP.
  • In 1999, it signed the five-album contract with Parlophone. Coldplay then made its appearance at Glastonbury and soon record the third EP entitled The Blue Room right after that.
