Coldplay singer Chris Martin has something to smile about following news of his marriage break-up – his band has tied U2 for the most No. 1 hits on America’s Billboard Adult Alternative Songs chart.

New single “Magic” is the British group’s 11th chart-topper and brings them level with U2, who edged ahead last month when their tune Invisible hit number one.

Both bands have extended their lead on the Dave Matthews Band and Jack Johnson, who each have nine number ones.

Coldplay first hit the top of the Adult Alternative Songs countdown with “In My Place” in 2002.

The news comes just two weeks after Martin and his wife Gwyneth Paltrow announced they had separated.
