Coldplay's recent Glastonbury set was broadcast live on VH1 and Palladia, marking the first time in the music festival's 41-year history that an artist's full concert was televised in the U.S. "Their gig was one of the best I've seen in the last ten years," said The Sun. "The new songs fitted in seamlessly, while the big hits sent Worthy Farm into orbit." "Coldplay understands how to make a shared moment from a song...their respect for their fans is obvious," noted The Times of London while The Observer called the band's set "faultless."

"Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall" is now available as a digital EP on the iTunes Store. In addition to the title track, it includes two brand new songs - "Major Minus" and "Moving To Mars."
