MTV prize for Coldplay
Their track Paradise – a previous number one in the UK – won a prize for its video at the recent MTV Video Music Awards, according to the MTV website. The award in question was in the Best Rock Video category.
Other award recipients included Katy Perry, whose recent ballad Wide Awake was deemed to have inspired the video with Best Art Direction and one-time X Factor contestants One Direction, whose What Makes You Beautiful video picked up several prizes.
Coldplay's competition came in the form of the likes of Jack White, The Black Keys and Linkin Park, whose clips were also nominated for the prize they eventually won.
The Paradise clip features a performer in an elephant costume doing things such as riding a bike and a London underground train.
Paradise featured on Coldplay's most recent LP, Mylo Xyloto. Their previous albums include Parachutes and X & Y.
