Steve Lamacq tells the story of the UK's most successful export since The Beatles.

Coldplay tell us about their rise from impoverished London students and buskers in Covent Garden to darlings of the Glastonbury Pyramid and stadium-straddling uber-rock gods.

You'll hear the names the band rejected, gasp at Chris' fondness for Norwegian pop and revel in the true story of the creation of their new album.

Featuring an exclusive interview with all of the band - Chris Martin, Guy Berryman, Will Champion and Jonny Buckland - as well as comments from peers and colleagues including Michael & Emily Eavis, Danny MacNamara from Embrace, producer Danton Supple, A&R man Dan Keeling, record company supremo Miles Leonard, Dan Hipgrave, A&R scout Debs Wild and US DJ Nic Harcourt.

The show was made in 2005.
