Coldplay have scored their first ever U.S. number one single just two days after the release of their much-anticipated new album VIVA LA VIDA.
The British rockers have ended Lil Wayne's five-week reign at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 with their new song Violet Hill.
But it's not all doom and gloom for the rapper - his Tha Carter III stormed to the top of the album charts on Wednesday (18Jun08) with over one million sales.
Coldplay's Viva La Vida is expected to topple Lil Wayne on the album charts next week (25Jun08).
Hot newcomer Katy Perry's summer anthem I Kissed a Girl also moves up the singles chart in America, claiming the new number two spot.
