Alternative rock groups like Radiohead, R.E.M., U2, and later on Arcade Fire have all influenced Coldplay’s sound. Coldplay has adapted orchestral arrangements into their music to create the floating feeling which defines singles like “Viva La Vida” and “Fix You”. “Viva La Vida” the second single to be released from the world’s best selling album of 2008, Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends, was the first Coldplay song to top the Billboard Hot 100 and has over 500 million views on YouTube.
Coldplay has now become such a commercial success that they have had no choice but to adapt their live music to stadium size venues. This has meant incorporating spectacular laser effects, glowballs, and interactive LED bracelets that illuminate fans in attendance. Martin carries the band on stage with his boundless enthusiasm. In a recorded performance from São Paulo (viewed over six million times on YouTube) Martin is able to lose himself during a rendition of “Fix You”. He begins the performance lying with his head at the bottom of a ramp looking out at the dark sea of fans with their glowing wrists. As the song reaches a crescendo he sprints up the ramp and jumps for joy.
