This comes from an article at Yahoo! News titled "World Music Sales Spin Lower:"
"Global music sales spiraled 9.2 percent lower in the first half of 2002 but the battered music industry is holding out for a second-half revival led by Elvis, Coldplay and Shakira."

There's some interesting information about the new single, too. The following was taken from LAUNCH:
Coldplay's "The Scientist" is the follow-up to "In My Place" from the band's A Rush Of Blood To The Head. The track is slated to arrive at radio the week of November 4.
Guitarist Jonny Buckland told LAUNCH that the song was put together very quickly and he knew singer-songwriter Chris Martin had a hit from the start. "The most fun tracks to record are the ones that come quite quickly, you know, and come together quickly. 'The Scientist' was one of those. Chris wrote the melody and the piano part in an afternoon one Sunday and I heard it and I thought it was amazing. And the next day we went in and recorded it straight down, first take pretty much and then we arranged it and within two days it was recorded and done."
Coldplay's A Rush Of Blood To The Head has reached gold status for sales of 500,000 copies as certified by Recording Industry Association of America. The band is currently touring back home in the U.K.
