The full album (track list below) will stream exclusively through the MySpace music player on the band’s profile until it is released on June 17th (Capitol Records).

With more than 415,000 friends, Coldplay is one of the most popular bands on MySpace today, with a long history of exclusive content on the site. Coldplay never intended to become England's favorite rock & roll sons when their signature rock melodies ruled the charts throughout 2000. The Brit rock quartet -- composed of Chris Martin (vocals/piano), Jon Buckland (guitar), Will Champion (drums), and Guy Berryman (bass) -- yearned to mess around a bit, plucking their own acoustics for fun while attending the University College of London. All had been playing instruments since their early teens and had been influenced by the likes of Bob Dylan, the Stone Roses, Neil Young, and My Bloody Valentine.
