Coldplay Most Recent Album 'X & Y'

X&Y is the third album by British rock band Coldplay, released in the United Kingdom on 6 June 2005 and in North America on June 7. Preceded by the successful single "Speed of Sound", which was at #2 in the UK and #8 in the U.S., the album debuted at the top of the UK album chart, moving 464,471 units in its first week, a success which put X&Y second in overall first week sales. The album became Coldplay's first U.S. chart-topper, selling 737,000 units in its first week of release, as well as spending three weeks at number one. X&Y was the #1 best-selling album worldwide in 2005; it shifted 8.3 million units during the year.
According to lead singer Chris Martin, the title X&Y is based on the ups and downs of his everyday life. Martin says "My whole day is a mixture of optimism and pessimism in its most extreme forms. And that’s what X&Y is to me. It’s two sides. I like the fact they’re very strong letters, very clear"
The albums's review was overall very good but as we know that every album has some critics. Coldplay has also received a minor amount of criticism for the similarities between the lead single, "Speed of Sound", and the Grammy-winning "Clocks". Others have noted the striking U2 similarities heard throughout the album.
