A new documentary will track the history of Coldplay, as the band celebrates two decades of work.

A Head Full of Dreams, directed by a longtime friend of the group, Mat Whitecross, has been released in select cinemas, before heading exclusively to Amazon Prime Video on Friday, 16 November.

The film is named after the band's 2015 album, interweaving clips of live performances, from the group's A Head Full of Dreams Tour, and behind-the-scenes segments of the band.

There is also running commentary provided by the band themselves: Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman, and Will Champion.

A Head Full of Dreams sold over six million copies worldwide, although received mixed reviews from critics. It was supported by five singles: "Adventure of a Lifetime", "Hymn for the Weekend", "Up & Up", "A Head Full of Dreams", and "Everglow".

There have persistent rumours since that this will be the last Coldplay album ever produced, although the band have yet to confirm their future.
