A Rush of Blood to the Head is the second studio album by British rock band Coldplay. It was released on 26 August 2002 by Parlophone in the United Kingdom, and a day later by Capitol Records in the United States. Recording started after the band became popular worldwide with the release of their debut album Parachutes (2000), and one of its singles in particular, “Yellow“. The album was produced by the band and Ken Nelson, and makes greater use of the electric guitar and piano than its predecessor.

The album topped the UK Albums Chart upon its first week of release in the United Kingdom, and became the eighth biggest-selling album of the 21st century in the UK.The British Phonographic Industry has since certified the album 10× Platinum for its accumulated sales of over 3 million units in the UK, while over 17 million copies were sold worldwide.[9] The album spawned the hit singles “In My Place“, “The Scientist“, and “Clocks“. “God Put a Smile upon Your Face” was also released, but was significantly less successful.

A Rush of Blood to the Head has been critically acclaimed, and the band received three Grammy Awards for the album; the 2003 Grammy for Best Alternative Album, which was the band’s second win in a row, the 2003 Grammy for Best Rock Performance with the song “In My Place”, and the 2004 Grammy for Record of the Year with the song “Clocks”. In 2020, it was ranked number 324 on Rolling Stones “500 Greatest Albums of All Time“. It was also among ten albums nominated for the best British album of the previous 30 years by the Brit Awards in 2010, ultimately losing to (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? by Oasis.The same year, it was one of ten classic album covers from British artists commemorated on a UK postage stamp issued by the Royal Mail.

Authors and reviewers have praised A Rush of Blood to the Head as one of the best albums of the 21st century. “In My Place“, “The Scientist” and “Clocks” became the band’s signature songs, by their commercial performance
