Forbes: The World's Highest-Paid Musicians 2013

7 of 12

5. Coldplay ($64 Million)

The pop-rockers have long been compared to Irish supergroup U2, and this year Coldplay out-earned its predecessors on the strength of a world tour that pulled in more than $3 million per city. The band has ascended the ranks of our list with a little help from some superstar friends: frontman Chris Martin and his wife Gwyneth Paltrow are often spotted with Beyoncé (No. 10) and Jay Z (No. 18), who's been known to join Coldplay onstage.
