As Coldplay release their five-track Live From Spotify London collection, the streaming giant has revealed the band passed 5 billion streams on the service.

The accomplishment, recorded earlier this week, makes them officially the biggest band in the world on all-time streams. Adventure Of A Lifetime, the lead single from the band's seventh studio album A Head Full Of Dreams, leads the way with more than 322 million plays to date, ahead of Hymn For The Weekend on 289,860,180. More than a billion of the streams came from their latest LP. 

According to Official Charts Company data, the album has sold 951,540 copies in the UK - comprising 701,932 physical and 183,159 permanent downloads, with 66,449 via streams.

Coldplay are 12th in the world when it comes to Spotfiy monthly listeners, clocking up 25,495,719. Live From Spotify London is an exclusive, five-track collection of unique, stripped-back live recordings, performed in front of a small audience at Spotify’s London HQ (pictured) last month.
