The British band fronted by Chris Martin are celebrating as they have reportedly locked this year's fastest-selling album with their latest hit studio installment.

AceShowbiz - Coldplay's new LP, "Music of the Spheres", has become the fastest-selling album of 2021.

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.

The unbroken run of number one studio albums for the British hitmakers has now tied the record of The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers, whose solo albums also shot to number one.

The "Yellow" hitmakers are also now neck and neck with ABBA and Bob Dylan, who each have nine consecutive number one records.

Meanwhile, former Oasis star Noel Gallagher still holds the record with 10 consecutive chart-toppers, according to NME.

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."
