The release, which dropped last week (15Oct21), has also earned the band its ninth consecutive U.K. number one album.
According to NME, the band is also the first to rack up more than 100,000 chart sales in one week since Ed Sheeran's "No. 6 Collaborations" in 2019.
"Music of the Spheres" has also topped the vinyl albums chart.
Coldplay are scheduled to hit the road in 2022 to promote "Music of the Spheres" and the band vow to be eco-friendly for their upcoming jaunt by planning to cut emissions by 50 per cent compared to their previous live shows.
"Music of the Spheres" is the group's ninth studio album. Frontman Chris Martin recently said they would quit music for good after making their 12th LP.
"I think that in a few albums time we will finish making albums," he said. "This is not a joke, this is true, I think after 12 that will be the end of our catalogue."
