"Yellow" is a song by British rock band Coldplay. The band wrote the song and co-produced it with British record producer Ken Nelson for their debut album, Parachutes (2000). The song's lyrics are a reference to the band's lead singer Chris Martin's unrequited love.
The song was recorded in March 2000, and released in June that same year as the second single from Parachutes, following Shiver, and the lead single in the United States. "Yellow" reached number four in the UK Singles Chart, giving Coldplay their first top-five single in the United Kingdom. Helped by heavy rotation and usage in promotions, the song thrust the band into popularity. "Yellow" has since been covered by various recording artists worldwide, and remains one of the band's most popular songs.
