Coldplay Apologize for Turning Down 'Glee' Offer

After previously refusing to allow 'Glee' to use their music, the Chris Martin-fronted band finally grant the TV series access to their catalogue following the success of Madonna tribute.

British rockers have issued an apology to the makers of hit U.S. show "" for turning down a request to use their music on the program - and they have backtracked by giving producers access to their full catalogue. Creator Ryan Murphy asked the "Yellow" hitmakers if he could showcase their songs for a special episode, but the band turned him down.

After the success of a tribute show in April, the rockers have now admitted to Murphy they "were wrong" to have snubbed the opportunity and have offered him full use of their entire music catalogue.

Murphy tells The Hollywood Reporter, "At the beginning a lot of people didn't know what we were and asked to see pages (in advance), but I refused because I didn't want to set precedent of them having any involvement. My favorite rejection was . Coldplay and Bryan Adams were really the only rejections. But Coldplay called a week ago and said, 'We're sorry, you can have our catalogue'."
