67.5 Percent Of Coldplay’s Sales Are Digital

    Coldplay topped Billboard earlier this week, selling 447,411 copies of their new album, Mylo Xyloto. There was a lot of talk earlier this year about how digital sales helped Lady Gaga sell a million copies in her first week, but it turns out digital sales are what helped Coldplay too: 67.5 percent of Coldplay’s sales, 302,311 copies, came through digital outlets and not in physical form. So know this: Not only do Coldplay fans exist in 2011, they buy their albums via digital means. [DMN]
