Coldplay's just-wrapped Australian tour has broken a record at one venue and created a halo effect for half-a-dozen recordings.

With their fourth and final concert at Sydney's Acer Arena on Sunday, the group clocked-up nearly 59,000 ticket sales at the site, setting a new venue record for the most tickets shifted by an artist on a single tour.

On this occasion, the band shifted 58,943 tickets at Acer, outpacing Justin Timberlake's 57,788 ticket sales set back in November 2007. It means Coldplay reclaimed a record they had earlier owned with their 2006 "Twisted Logic" tour, in support of the album "X&Y" (Parlophone).

The popular British band's 11-date national headlining tour, which also visited arenas in Perth, Melbourne and Brisbane, was the catalyst for a sales push behind six Coldplay tracks. "Viva La Vida" is at No. 30 on the current ARIA singles chart, up from No.38 last week, while "Clocks" is now at No. 72, "Fix You" is at No. 79, "Life In Technicolour II" is at No. 81, "The Scientist" is at No. 90 and "Violet Hill" is at No. 95.

The group will no doubt have won new fans with a rousing performance to open the Sydney leg of the Sound Relief concert last Saturday, just hours before turning out for an Acer concert across town.

Coldplay's multiple Grammy-winning album "Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends" has reached quadruple platinum certification down under (280,000 units).
