    Right...so, the end of the decade meant house cleaning for Coldplay, and for a few lucky (and wealthy? ) Coldplayers, it meant taking home pieces of that memorabilia. Also, by month's end, we watched the boys become immortalized in yellow animation in the much anticipated appearance on The Simpsons. All the while, sending a message of hope to a quake-ridden Haiti.
    Soldiering on...


    JANUARY 1
    Coldplayers spend over on £70,000 ($120,000) on End-of-Decade Clearout Sale



    If you recall, last December Coldplay held an auction to sell 10 years worth of their most treasured nostalgia and instruments, with all proceeds going to the charity Kids Company.

    Dedicated Coldplayers ponied up some serious cash, with the TOP TWELVE (hey, i had to incorporate the number 12 somehow, right? ) highest bidding auction winners taking home the following:

    1-Jonny's Viva Guitar - Jason-DeBord - £15,000 ($23,578.50)

    2-Parachutes Globe - NumbersGirl - £8,100 ($12,732.40)

    3-Strawberry Swing Outfit - lo&loud - £6,100 ($9,588.60)

    4- Takamine Guitar - lo&loud - £5,800 ($9,117.00)

    5-Chris' Gibson J200 "A Message" - bonedaddy - £5,650 ($8,881.20)

    6- Guy's Viva Jacket - Afeather - £4,800 ($7,545.12)

    7-Chris' Yamaha CP70 - christopher Martin - £4,000 ($6,287.60)

    8-Autoharp - silver.lining42 - £3,600 ($5,658.84)

    10-Fender Rhodes piano - lo&loud - £2,505 ($3,937.60)

    11-Will's Drum from "Talk" video - lo&loud - £1,850 ($2,908.00)

    12-Yellow Lith #1 - DriftedFar^ - £1,021.83 ($1,606.20)

    The full list of winning Colplayers can be found here with a grand total of £70,000 ($120,000).
    Congrats, guys. You are now the proud owners of history. Cherish it!

    The episode, entitled 'Million Dollar Maybe,' sees Coldplay performing for Homer and Bart in their own private stadium, after Homer hires the band to play for them after winning the lottery.

    Great Review!
    A Message 2010 on the Hope For Haiti telethon was the highlight of the month for me. I loved that performance; it was very touching.

    I remember watching A Message on Hope For Haiti Now in the kitchen. I was jumping everywhere and squeeing and my dad stared at me like

    It was certainly the most memorable and touching thing that happened for me in January.
