Coldplay’s fifth studio album, Mylo Xyloto (pronounced my-lo zy-letoe), was released on October 24 on Parlophone Records. Produced by Markus Dravs, Daniel Green, Rik Simpson with enoxification and additional composition by Brian Eno, Mylo Xyloto follows 2008’s Viva La Vida, which charted at No. 1 in 36 countries, including the UK and USA. Mylo Xyloto will be released in digital, CD and vinyl formats. The 180-gram vinyl edition will include a 12” x 36” poster.
A special limited edition Pop-Up Album version is also be available, which includes a 12" x 12" hardback book containing graffiti pop-up art designed by David A. Carter, vinyl, CD and exclusive content including photographs, excerpts from the studio diary and the band's personal notebooks.
Half of the CDs are packaged with the full color artwork as the cover while the other 50% have the CD booklet flipped, showing the silver initials “M X” via a die-cut sheet placed over the color image.
