Coldplay is one of few English rock bands in recent years to receive monumental acclaim both in England and the US simultaneously. Having played sold-out stadium tour dates around the world and sold over 50 million albums worldwide, Coldplay has reached a level of fame that's likely to last for decades to come. Fans have been waiting years for the release of Coldplay's upcoming, as yet untitled album that's set to release this fall. Before the album releases and a promotional concert schedule is announced, fans can catch Coldplay at a handful of international festival tour dates in 2011.
After forming in 1996, releasing three EPs, and going through quite a few name changes, Coldplay broke into the mainstream with their debut album, Parachutes, in 2000. The album went platinum seven times, won a Grammy in 2002, and was largely supported by the single "Yellow." The acclaim was succeeded by numerous high profile, headlining tour dates . Coldplay's following albums, including A Rush of Blood to the Head and Viva la Vida experienced similar success: winning Grammys, going multi-platinum, and placing at the top of the charts.
After three years of recording, Coldplay will soon be ready to release their next smash record. Fans are excited about the album's release, as well as upcoming summer and fall tour dates in 2011. Festival highlights from the concert schedule include Splendour in the Grass, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and Rock In Rio. Coldplay's final tour dates in 2011 will be supporting the Parlotones in South Africa in early October, but more dates might be added to the concert schedule.

An .ics file can have a single event or a list of events. You can download the .ics file and import it into your calendar for a snapshot of the data or you can subscribe and let your calendar program update the event data in your calendar automatically.
CSV (short for "comma-separated values") is a simple data format that many programs, such as Microsoft Excel, use for importing and exporting data.
You can import a list of events into Microsoft Outlook, Yahoo! Calendar, and other tools by using this CSV file.
