With an alluring, melodic pop sound and multi-instrumental arrangements, English, alternative-rock band, Coldplay has enchanted audiences everywhere over the years. Coldplay’s second appearance on ACL’s stage is another milestone for the historic show and a one-of-a-kind episode with the band’s unique production. “We decided to go big with Coldplay – really big. So we came up with the idea of celebrating New Year’s Eve with a 90-minute special. All the hits plus their brand new songs,” said Executive Producer Terry Lickona. “It’ll be a great way to kick off 2012!”

The New Year’s Eve special comes on the heels of the release of the band’s new album, Mylo Xyloto, which has charted at No. 1 in 32 countries. It also hit the No. 1 spot in all 35 iTunes stores around the world, breaking the record for the highest number of download sales in one week – a milestone Coldplay first achieved in 2008 with the release of Viva La Vida. Mylo Xyloto is Coldplay’s third consecutive studio album to debut atop both The Billboard 200 and the U.K. album chart.
