This visual masterpiece, originating in the year 2000, represents Coldplay's sixth music video to achieve this remarkable feat, joining the ranks of their other chart-topping hits like 'Paradise,' 'Adventure of a Lifetime,' and 'Hymn for the Weekend.'
A View Count Triumph

The breakthrough hit, which marked their 2016 Super Bowl Halftime Show performance, showcases Coldplay's enduring appeal and the timeless magnetism of their music.
Timeless Hit, Timeless Views
'Yellow' not only served as the Stateside lead single for the Grammy-winning debut album 'Parachutes' but has now etched its name in the annals of YouTube history. Climbing to No. 48 on the Billboard Hot 100, it laid the foundation for Coldplay's meteoric rise from humble beginnings. The band has evolved tremendously, boasting chart-toppers like 'Viva La Vida' and 'My Universe.'
The authenticity of 'Yellow,' featuring a one-shot music video in stark contrast to later CGI-laden productions, emphasizes the timeless charm that resonates with fans. Coldplay's journey from this visual simplicity to the grandeur of their current hits showcases their evolution over the years.
Parachuting to Stardom
