British band Coldplay's new album opens at No. 1

British rock band Coldplay clinched its first American chart topper on Wednesday as its latest album "X&Y" logged first-week U.S. sales of more than 737,000 copies and also shot to No. 1 in 21 other countries.

The strong debut for Coldplay's highly anticipated third studio release marked the biggest opening so far this year for a rock album and came as especially welcome news for the band's label, EMI Group Plc.
