Singles section?[edit]

Here's a proposal for the addition of a singles section into the template. It's a bit long, so I don't know if it will work, but the Gorillaz template has one and it works. If there is a majority of agreement, feel free to make the addition.

I'm only concerned that it would go out of control like the Kylie infobox. That thing is like 2 paragraphs long. --Madchester 02:56, 27 September 2005 (UTC)

Style change[edit]

As I'm doing with all band-related infoboxes, I've modified this template to conform to a uniform style (see Template:Rush for an example). If you see any other band infoboxes that would benefit from the change, let me know. Flag of Australia.svg plattopustalk 14:36, 24 December 2005 (UTC)

Remove White Shadows?[edit]

Should White Shadows be removed from the Singles section of this template? It was never released. The song's linked from the X&Y album page, so I'm not sure we need a link here. --Typobox43 19:06, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

I agree. According to me too, it doesnt belong to this template.Frédérick Lacasse 17:26, 17 December 2006 (UTC)

Death Will Never Conquer?[edit]

Is this true about it being a single? --  ThinkBlue  (Hit BLUE) 02:28, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

One editor made the addition that it was a new single, claiming that it was being given away as a free download on the official site. However, artists regularly giveaway music on their website/Myspace; there's no supporting third-party sources suggesting that the cover is actually a new single. --Madchester (talk) 17:35, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Featured singles[edit]

Most of these feature Chris Martin on his own working with other artists and they are never credited as band efforts. They do not belong in a Coldplay section. (talk) 05:53, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

I've noticed that problem for a long while. I'm going to borrow the Radiohead template's approach, where there's a separate section for Thom Yorke and Johnny Greenwood's solo work. --Madchester (talk) 17:36, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Related Artists[edit]

How are bands like Arcade Fire and U2 related to Coldplay? I understand that they had collaborated with Johnny Cash, and Chris Martin with Jay-Z, but the rest simply seem to be influences. I don't really think that those reasons alone merits them a place in the template. Sylar07 (talk) 15:21, 12 December 2008 (UTC)


Solo by Chris Martin should be splitted into new template/table or removed. Silvergoat (talkcontrib) 10:55, 4 December 2010 (UTC)
