Coldplay has been selling albums left, right, and center, with over 100 million copies sold worldwide. And with their iconic tunes, like Yellow and Viva La Vida, it’s no surprise that the gang has made a huge success in their music career.

With all that success, it’s no wonder that Chris has made a hefty amount of money all over those years, so what exactly are his net worth numbers?

How Much Is Coldplay Worth All Together?

Coldplay, the famous British rock band, is worth a cool $475 million altogether. However, there’s no denying that Chris Martin, the lead singer, is the big cheese when it comes to Coldplay’s net worth.

Paparazzi are even selling Martin’s autographs online, making it abundantly clear that the other members of the band are often overshadowed by his popularity and stardom. Nonetheless, they’re all vital to the band and have impressive net worths of their own.

Take Johnny Buckland, the band’s guitarist, for instance. He’s worth a whopping $100 million and started playing guitar at the tender age of seven. But did you know that he initially had no intention of becoming a famous guitarist? That’s right!

Buckland went to college and majored in Mathematics and Astronomy, where he met the rest of the band. His musical influences are U2 and My Bloody Valentine, and he’s known for using a lot of slide guitars. But, interestingly enough, that has nothing to do with his contributions to Ian McCulloch’s album, Slideling, in 2003.

Moving on to the bassist, Guy Berryman, who’s worth anywhere between $75 and $100 million, depending on who you ask. Like Buckland, Berryman was studying at the University of London and pursuing a science-related degree, specifically in engineering. But instead of becoming the next great left-handed bassist after Paul McCartney, Berryman decided to play his bass right-handed.

He’s had a few side-gigs over the years, including being a guest artist on Magne Furuholmen’s (of the band a-ha) solo album Past Perfect Future Tense in 2004, where he played bass with Coldplay’s drummer Will Champion. Berryman also played bass on Furuholmen’s second solo album, A Dot of Black in the Blue of Your Bliss, in 2008.

In the same year, Berryman started a band called Apparatjik with Furuholmen, Jonas Bjerre (of Mew), and Martin Terefe. They even contributed the musical theme for the BBC2 series Amazon.

Apparatjik went on tour in 2010 and released their debut album, We Are Here, that same year. In 2011, they released their second album, Square Peg in a Round Hole. Berryman has even tried his hand at business by opening a clothing shop in London called Jezebell, but it shut down. More recently, he’s become the publisher of the automobile magazine, The Road Rat.

Last but certainly not least, the band’s drummer, Will Champion, is also worth $100 million. He’s a multi-instrumentalist who likes guitar almost as much as he likes drums. Champion first joined Coldplay in 1997 but was fired by Martin two years later, only to be rehired later on.

He had a cameo in the infamous Game of Thrones episode “The Rains of Castamere,” where he played a musician at the Red Wedding. While Berryman is known as the shy bandmate, Champion is known to be the most level-headed and helps make some of Coldplay’s biggest decisions.

Chris Martin’s Net Worth

We talked about the band members’ net worth and looking at the stat they certainly are very rich but still, but Chris Martin still steals the spotlight.

As per the report of 2023, Chris Martin has a total net worth of almost $140 million. Well, he did lose some during his recent split with Gwyneth Paltrow but don’t worry, Chris still swims in the pool of dollars.

It’s really ironic how Chris managed to form the iconic band ‘Coldplay.’ Instead of having a normal college life with friends and struggling with good marks, Martin was making friends and searching for an idea to make a heck of a profit.

He and his college buddies formed the band and Martin decided to pursue a career in music rather than a degree because it was more profitable than he could’ve imagined.

After his divorce, Martin wanted to spend quality time with his kids rather than only focusing on his career, so he decided to buy a house for that sole reason across the street from Paltrow’s – and let’s just say that’s not exactly cheap real estate. He shelled out a cool $6.75 million for the property.

Well taking a look at his real status, we can find that Chris really knows how to spend his money.

Chris and his ex-wife owned an estate in Malibu back in 2014 which cost about $14 million. That’s just the side piece because they also owned a Tribeca penthouse they snagged for $5.1 million in 2007. Not to mention their other homes in London, Brentwood, and the Hamptons.

As if that’s not enough, Chris sold his Mandeville Canyon home for $12 million, which he bought for $6.75 million, you know where the profit comes from now.


Those are just a glimpse of Chris’s real estate. If we talk about his properties then the list just gets higher and higher.
