Coldplay Tops The Billboard Charts

Billboard reports that, as expected, Coldplay topped The Billboard 200 chart this week with their new release “Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends.”  The release sold an impressive 721,000 copies in the U.S in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan.  

Coldplay is the first rock band to have a 700,000-plus week since The Eagles’ “Long Road Out of Eden” sold 711,000 copies in its first week of release last November.
