30 May 2012, 10:55

The Chris Martin fronted-band played for a sold-out crowd at Coventry's Ricoh Arena.

Coldplay have described the crowd on the opening night of their UK tour in Coventry as "incredible".

The band's sold-out gig at the Ricoh Arena marked the first time their 'Mylo Xyloto' world tour had arrived on home soil since beginning earlier this year.

In a message on Twitter after the gig, Coldplay wrote: "What an incredible crowd we just played for in Coventry. Thank you so much for making it one of our favourites."

Coldplay's performance featured tracks spanning their career, including hits 'In My Place', 'Yellow', 'Viva La Vida', and recent single 'Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall' and 'Paradise'.

The gig has been praised by critics, with the Daily Telegraph saying Coldplay had "earned their status as biggest band on the planet".

Their reviewer added: "The explosion of light and music on Charlie Brown is just amazing, maybe the most spectacular musical moment I have ever witnessed."

Coldplay are among the acts set to perform at Capital FM's Summertime Ball at London's Wembley Stadium on 9th June.

They join the likes of The Wanted, Katy Perry, Usher, Justin Bieber and Jessie J on the line-up for the event.

Coldplay's UK tour continues on Friday (1st June) in London.
