A Head Full of Dreams was shot over 20 years and follows the band's rise from playing local pubs in Camden to selling out stadiums around the world.

The film is directed by Mat Whitecross, who has "been filming the band since their first rehearsal", according to the trailer's YouTube description.

Whitecross has since directed numerous band's most iconic videos (including Paradise, A Sky Full Of Stars and Adventure Of A Lifetime) and continued to document the band's musical and personal evolution.

A Head Full of Dreams will give an in-depth and intimate portrait of Coldplay's road to success.

Facebook Purges 800+ Accounts, Pages for Political Spamming
The Editor-in-chief of Reverb Press, Edward Lynn, said Facebook gave him no prior warning that it would be removing his page. The company says most of the pages and accounts banned this time were from the U.S.

A Head Full Of Dreams drops exclusively on Amazon Prime Video following a one-night-only theatrical release that will see the doc receive a special screening in more than 2,000 cinemas worldwide on Wednesday 14 November. The film will show in theaters during a special, one-night event November 14 before debuting November 16 on Amazon Prime Video. He has directed several of their iconic music videos, the likes of "Paradise", "A Sky Full Of Stars", and "Adventures Of A Lifetime". So although Chris Martin and company have backpedaled the notion that it's Coldplay's final album - they've already released another record, last year's Kaleidoscope EP - it makes sense that the band is releasing a career-spanning documentary at this point in time.

The film will be accompanied by three new live Coldplay recordings, available to stream on Amazon Music starting October 26.

Using extensive unseen archive, behind-the-scenes and live footage, A HEAD FULL OF DREAMS sees the band reflect upon their two decades together.
