Coldplay make history

Coldplay have become the first British band since the Beatles to have a new entry in the US Top 10. Coldplay's single Speed of Sound entered the chart at No.8 reports BBC online.
The Beatles single Hey Jude entered the US charts Top 10 in in 1968.
The group had a run of US number one hits in the 1960s - but Hey Jude, which made its debut at number 10, was their first single to go straight into the Top 10.
Speed of Sound is the highest new entry since American Idol winner Fantasia went in at number one last July.
Speed of Sound is released in the UK on Monday. Coldplay's previous biggest US hit was Clocks, which reached number 29 in 2003.
Coldplay's album, X&Y, is released in the UK on June 6.
