The official music video for the single Yellow by Coldplay. The single is taken from their debut album Parachutes. They achieved worldwide fame with the release of the single "Yellow" in 2000. The album was later nominated for a Mercury Award. The video is minimalistic, featuring only Martin singing the song as he walks along the beach.

The whole video concept was conceived by Chris Martin and the rest of the band. Coldplay are a British alternative rock band formed in 1996 by lead vocalist Chris Martin and lead guitarist Jonny Buckland at University College London. After they formed Pectoralz, Guy Berryman joined the group as a bassist and they changed their name to Starfish. Will Champion joined as a drummer, backing vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist, completing the line-up. Manager Phil Harvey is often considered an unofficial fifth member. The band renamed themselves "Coldplay" in 1998, before recording and releasing three EPs; Safety in 1998, Brothers & Sisters as a single in 1999 and The Blue Room in the same year. The latter was their first release on a major label, after signing to Parlophone.
