2005 – Coldplay went straight to No.1 on US album chart with their third album ‘X&Y’, having already entered at number one in the UK. The last time a British artist had a simultaneous US and UK number one was in November 2000 with ‘1’, a compilation of hits by The Beatles. The last studio album to reach number one on both sides of the Atlantic was Radiohead’s ‘Kid A’ in October 2000. ‘X&Y’ went on to top over 30 global charts.
