EMI labels score a double victory on Billboard's new pan-European sales charts. Coldplay starts an eighth week at No. 1 on the Top 100 Albums chart with "Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends" (Parlophone), while Katy Perry's "I Kissed A Girl" (Virgin) races 8-1 on Eurochart Hot 100 Singles.

The Coldplay set's summer residency atop the European survey continues as it holds down the top spot again in Holland, France and the Belgian region of Wallony. It falls 1-2 in Ireland and 1-3 in Switzerland, but is back up 3-2 in Germany, Sweden and Norway and 5-4 in Austria. The band's extensive European tour begins Sept. 1 in Strasbourg, France.

"Viva" is trailed again by its predecessor at the pan-European summit, Duffy's "Rockferry" (A&M/Universal), which has been in runner-up spot ever since its three weeks at No. 1 in June. The Welsh star's debut set has sold 1,067,000 copies to last weekend in the United Kingdom, where it's back up 3-2, and spends a fifth week at No. 1 in Sweden. It's also up 4-2 in France, 3-2 in Finland and 6-5 in Wallony, while the single "Mercy" moves back up 13-11 on the Eurochart.

Polydor/Universal's "Mamma Mia!" soundtrack moves back 4-3 overall, trading places with Amy Winehouse's "Back To Black" (Universal Island). The soundtrack album is approaching 300,000 sales in the United Kingdom, and tops the chart again in Denmark, Norway, Finland and Hungary, rising 3-1 in Switzerland. "Black," meanwhile, is up 7-4 in Greece and 8-7 in Germany.

Abba songs claim two of the top five berths on the European chart, as the quartet's "Gold - Greatest Hits" (Polydor/Universal) rises 6-5. The venerable 1992 compilation moves up 5-1 in Ireland and holds at the U.K. summit, taking its 16-year sales tally to 4,229,000. "Mamma Mia," the early 1976 U.K. No. 1 that inspired the eponymous hit stage show and now the movie, nudges 71-68 there on download sales.

Amy Macdonald's "This Is The Life" (Mercury/Universal), which fell 6-9 on Top 100 Albums last week, reverses the move, holding at No. 2 in Switzerland, No. 3 in Holland and reaching a new peak in Germany with a 9-5 move. The title track single is up 9-7 there, and holds at No. 1 in the Belgian region of Flanders.

Kid Rock's "Rock 'n'Roll Jesus" (Atlantic/Warner Music) dips 5-7 overall, holding at No. 4 in the United Kingdom and No. 5 in Switzerland and falling 3-5 in Austria. The single "All Summer Long" is deposed by Perry after four weeks atop the Eurochart, but is still No. 1 in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Holland and Ireland.

Madonna slides 7-8 on the Europe-wide album list with "Hard Candy" (Warner Bros.), holding at No. 4 in Hungary, while Paul Potts is down 8-9 with "One Chance" (Syco Music/Sony BMG), despite a third week at No. 1 in Germany. Potts' labelmate Leona Lewis rebounds 13-10 with her debut album "Spirit," helped by a 4-3 move in Sweden.

Perry's race to the top of the Eurochart follows a 4-1 surge in the United Kingdom on just under 46,000 downloads; it gets a physical release on Sept. 1. The track makes several other impressive climbs around Europe, including 10-1 in Sweden, 16-2 in Ireland, 4-2 in Norway, 7-3 in Holland and 6-4 in Finland. "Girl" is also a new entry at No. 2 in Germany and No. 3 in Switzerland and Austria, and rests at No. 2 in Denmark.
