Three-time Grammy winner Coldplay released its fourth album, Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends, in June, and it quickly became the most downloaded album in history. The album features frontman Chris Martin (above, left, with Jonny Buckland) singing in a lower register than his trademark falsetto, and a harder edge to the sounds typical of the band's earlier hits, including "Yellow," "Clocks" and "Speed of Sound." Coldplay comes to the Verizon Center, 601 F St. N.W., Washington, at 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $49.50-$97.50. Call 410-547-7328 or go to ticketmaster.com.
