The story behind Coldplay's album, Mylo Xyloto..!

When SCP first heard the album title of Coldplay's Mylo Xyloto we had to say to ourselves, WTF..! We have always know Chris Martin and the gang have been slightly obcessed with there vego diets and fondness for yoga, yet the title left us saying have the gone slightly banana's and not good in a Gwen Stefani way..! However the band have revealed there was method in the madess with  Mylo Xyloto being the first of a six-part comic series at this week's San Diego Comic-Con International.

We kid you not..!

The story of Mylo Xyloto was conceived and written by Coldplay alongside Academy Award-nominated writer and director Mark Osborne (Kung Fu Panda, MORE, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie), and the comics will be published by Matt Groening's celebrated Bongo Comics Group.

The band spoke of the reason of the name by saying  "Three years ago we had an idea with our friend Mark Osborne about a character called Mylo Xyloto - "xylo" as in xylophone, "to" as in toe. Gradually Mylo's story and universe came together and this ended up providing the backdrop for the album and tour. Now we're proud to announce that early next year the story is going to come out as a six-part comic. We hope you like it. It was fun making it."

The first issue of Mylo Xyloto was available, with an exclusive variant cover, at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con International (12-15 July) at the San Diego Convention Center. The six-part comic will then be released monthly from February 2013. The series will be available to pre-order via the Shop soon.
