Coldplay's 'Viva La Vida', the title track of their new LP, has gone to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart stateside, the first time a UK group has reached the top spot in 11 years.
The album Viva La Vida... is the fastest-selling album of 2008 so far, currently at number one in the UK and nearing sales of half a million.
Viva La Vida, reviewed here, is released in the US this week. Will they lap it up like the UK has? Probs. Another notch: the album holds the record for the biggest number of iTunes pre-sales. Something to do with this advert?
