I'll have a bet that I'm one of the youngest on this site, well the youngest active account anyways...
I was born in 2001 so I'm 14. Although I'm more of a recent fan, just discovered Coldplay several months ago. I dabble in songs from all albums, so I know what their old and new stuff sound like. I always try digging into as much stuff as I can when I join a fandom late.

What does fandom digging mean ?
Like going into the deep dark depths of tumblr, learn every reference, the opinions, the songs that matter and the songs that don't. Watching like every single interview. The preparation it takes to be a proper member of a well established group is insane haha. I feel like I got a head start though because my opinions were pretty set in stone from my childhood and I had listened to most of Coldplay before I was actually aware of what forums were.

LOL, I did that (well not every single thing of course) before I joined Coldplaying. And not for the purpose of "preparing" myself for anything, but just because I was interested :D

Well no I don't think anybody does it consciously but it happens and when it does the process is pretty tedious... It sucks up a whole lot of your life.

There is a fine line between superfandom and obsession, but there is that line. I'm sure we're all doing fine :)

To be honest if you really like an artist (even before it's an 'obsession') you still go through the process... It's just THE process!

I know what you're talking about. What caught my attention about the band was their music. Later, I started listening to some interviews just to try to improve my level of English but I discovered so many interesting facts about the band that I started to look for interviews to learn more about them!

19 July. And yes, fandom digging can be tedious, but there's always the pleasure of learning new stuff. :D
Aw no! You almost took it... I'm born on the 26th of September!

And yeah it's fun and kinda sucks up you social life at the same time.

Why Coldplay?
After listening to the songs played on the radio, TV or at school I felt tired of them and decided to find my own music. I found a band full of color wearing elephant outfits that had a catchy sound. I kept watching their videos and found a graffiti one where the line "I'd rather be a comma than a full stop" resonanted on me instantly. I started to follow them just three days after I "discovered" them, something that hadn't happened to me because around me there were music that either was hopeless or meaningless and I didn't want that in my life.
I kept listening to their songs. As English isn't my mother tongue the first thing that caught my attention was the melody. In that time I thought pop was the genre I liked but Politik and God Put A Smile Upon Your Face had a powerful sound and I couldn't help but start enjoying their rock sound. Even I felt the desire to go to one of their concerts when I wasn't a massive fan.
But what made me say I was a Coldplayer was the way they see life. I prefer to see the positive side of everything. Sometimes I see the dark side of things but I don't pay attention to them because it's a waste of time to get angry at things or moments that doesn't deserve my time. I prefer to learn from my mistakes. That's what have helped me succeed in what I've achieved. I won't give up because I'm not lost. There are many different ways to get what I want. I prefer to forgive. It doesn't mean I forget. I just want inner peace to see how wonderful life is. Coldplay was the proof that what I believe is true that I wasn't the only one who prefers love over hate. They are also the ones who remind me everything isn't lost whenever I feel low. They are the ones who make me dance, jump, cry and laugh at the same time.
Through their music, interviews and performances I see a group of friends who shows the most important thing in life is happiness and love. Of course we'll face difficult times but the way we look at them will make the difference. I don't care if they write the simplest lyrics because even in those lyrics there's a powerful message and I will always love and follow them for that.

I realized why Coldplay is perfect for the Superbowl. Unlike other shows where stars are basically showing off their bodies or where theres the risk of like a nipslip or something, Coldplay makes music for everyone. This year the show wont be for only people who like hip hop or r&b, everyone will be able to enjoy it. I expect more people to actually watch it then usual.

I'm honestly convinced most of the US believes their last album was X&Y. So the halftime show should be an eye opener for most.

Viva exists as a single to most people. Coldplay is very much still "that clocks band" to a LOT of people I've overheard or talked to.
