#13 COLDPLAY – 83,237,000
If we may doubt on Linkin Park hitting the 100-million club, Coldplay seem poised to do so. At 83 million and climbing fast, the British band started slower but their popularity never went down. While A Rush Of Blood To The Head remains their biggest album, the very recent smash of Hymn For The Weekend already enabled A Head Full Of Dreams to jump over Ghost Stories, putting that album in the band last position despite its more than 6 million overall sales.

Streaming Ranking- #5
Considering their debut came out in 2000, the #5 position in the streaming ranking of Coldplay is quite unbelievable. Their appeal among 15-25 years public never goes down in spite of their initial public getting older. This is due to their new songs consistently convincing new audiences, a real trademark of popularity. Coldplay are one more of those acts that already built a catalog with enough strength to gain several million equivalent album sales thanks to streaming of their past songs only. The fact that no greatest hits covers this catalog creates an even more favorable context for the band to keep on going strong with all their original albums.
