Coldplay's new single Higher Power launches straight to the top of the latest Official Trending Chart. The single had its release last Friday following a link-up with the International Space Station, and premiered after the band chatted live to French European Space Agency astronaut Thomas Pesquet.
They 'beamed' a specially recorded performance of the track (featuring dancing alien holograms) up to the ISS for Thomas to premiere.
Higher Power is the band's first new music since 2019, and is on course to become their first Top 10 single for four years - and 19th overall - as it sits at Number 8 midweek.
Coldplay have eight UK Number 1 albums and 24 Top 40 singles to date, including two Number 1s. Check out their full Official Chart historyRead more on officialcharts.com
