Coldplay to release new song 'Christmas Lights' next week (December 1) Get Tickets

The song will be available from iTunes at 8pm (GMT)

Coldplay's name was donated by them by a fellow student at UCL, who had been using it for his group but didn't want it anymore because he found it too depressing. Had he not given up the name, Coldplay might have been called Starfish or Stepney Green. Interesting fact: Keane's Tim Rice-Oxley also studied at UCL - in fact, he was invited to join the fledgling Coldplay, but turned the offer down. Pic: Tom Oxley
