Mylo Xyloto is the fifth studio album by British alt-rock group Coldplay. Though the album was a commercial hit, both fans and critics were divided about the new, electronic-heavy direction taken by the band (most likely due to the influence of producer Brian Eno, who also produced Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends).

Such politeness can verge on the dull - criminally so when they bring Rihanna in for Princess of China, a duet so toothless she may as well have stayed home - but Mylo Xyloto has a leg up on other Coldplay records for this simple reason: they’re no longer attempting to mimic U2's portentous piety.

Though their collaboration with Rihanna on "Princess of China" makes it all the more explicit, when you're at Coldplay's level, pop acts are your competition and Mylo places itself in a lineage of ultra-mainstream rock records spanning from Born in the . to Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix- swaddled in synths and gilded by state-of-the-art. It's a remarkably aerodynamic piece of all-purpose inspirational rock that never gets too pushy even with Martin's ss proclamations ("You use your heart as a weapon/ And it hurts like heaven"), tweaking its classicist template with a slight Auto-Tune on the falsetto harmonies

Mylo Xyloto is a comic book series created by the music group Coldplay and filmmaker Mark Osborne. It ties into (and tells the story of) the Coldplay album Mylo Xyloto. Published by Bongo Comics, the story followed the tale of Mylo, a 'Silencer', who, in the words of co-writer Mark Osborne (filmmaker), is a part of a "war against sound and colour".

Coldplay announced today that the band's fifth studio album, "Mylo Xyloto" (pronounced my-lo zy-letoe), will be released in the . Produced by Markus Dravs, Daniel Green and Rik Simpson, with "enoxification" and additional composition by Brian Eno, "Mylo Xyloto" is Coldplay's first release since 2008's "Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends," which debuted at No. 1 in Billboard and has sold . million units in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Among those are the relentlessly effervescent first track, "Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall"; the shimmering, syncopated "Charlie Brown"; and "Major Minus," an ominous, thundering beast of a song with rattling guitars, potent (and rare) Buckland solos, and restless, shifting musical patterns. Coldplay Perform "Charlie Brown" at Lollapalooza.

Internationally, Mylo Xyloto charted at number one in 34 countries. In the United Kingdom, Mylo Xyloto became Coldplay's fifth album to debut at number one, selling 208,000 units in its first week, and setting a one-week digital sales record with 83,000 copies sold. The album became the group's third to debut at number one on the US Billboard 200, selling 447,000 units in the first week.
