Coldplay moves to the European Top 100 Albums summit with "Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends" (Parlophone/EMI), on which it debuted at No. 4 on part-week sales last week.

Meanwhile, Duffy's "Mercy" (A&M/Universal) leads Eurochart Hot 100 Singles for a third straight week, and fourth overall.

The Coldplay album debuted on early European chart positions from its June 12 release, but moves to the top on its first full-week sales. In the United Kingdom, it adds just under 198,000 sales to its opening 302,000, according to the Official U.K. Charts Company, for a second week at No. 1. "Viva" makes a clean sweep of all major European markets, entering at the top in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, Spain, Holland, Portugal, Sweden and Ireland, climbing 2-1 in Denmark and Finland and holding at No. 1 in Norway and the Belgian regions of Wallony and Flanders. Additionally, the single "Viva La Vida" opens on the Eurochart at No. 4, after becoming Coldplay's first U.K. No.1 single on sales of 23,000 downloads, according to the OCC.

Duffy's "Rockferry" is thus relegated to No. 2 on the Europe-wide album tally, after three consecutive and six aggregate weeks at the top. It does, however, post climbs of 3-2 in the United Kingdom and 5-4 in Norway. Amy Winehouse holds at No. 3 overall with "Back To Black" (Universal Island), resting at No. 2 in Greece and No. 4 in Germany, while the "Deluxe Edition" of the album climbs 30-25 in the United Kingdom.

Madonna's "Hard Candy" (Warner Bros.) sits outside of the top two on Top 100 Albums for the first time since its No. 14 debut in late April. It's up 5-4 in Hungary but down 5-8 in Italy and France, and 5-7 in Greece. "The Best of Radiohead" (Parlophone/EMI) stays at No. 5 overall, falling 1-2 in Ireland, where Parlophone has the top two titles thanks to Coldplay's debut.

Long-serving metal favorite Judas Priest, formed in 1970, returns to the pan-European chart at No. 6 with "Nostradamus" (Columbia/Sony BMG), after debuts of No. 3 in Finland, No. 5 in Germany and No. 30 in the United Kingdom. That compares to a No. 4 start on Top 100 Albums for its 2005 predecessor "Angel of Retribution" (Epic), which then fell to No. 15.

Neil Diamond's "Home Before Dark" (Columbia/Sony BMG), now in its sixth week on the composite chart, slips 6-7, despite another week in the U.K. top three, where it falls 2-3. "Dark" is up 7-5 in Ireland.

Another enduring rock name, and Columbia labelmates of Judas Priest, returns at No. 8 overall, as the Offspring's "Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace" takes a bow. That's fuelled by entries at No. 5 in Switzerland and No. 6 in France. The Californian band last visited the pan-European album listing in the summer of 2005, when a "Greatest Hits" set reached No. 13.

Ich + Ich's "Vom Selben Stern" (Polydor/Universal) gives the German duo another week in the composite top ten, falling 8-9, as it loses its German crown to Coldplay. Amy Macdonald's "This Is The Life" (Vertigo/Universal) moves back into the overall top ten, 12-10. The Scottish singer-songwriter's debut set falls from No. 1 in both Holland and Switzerland, but is up 8-4 in Flanders (where the title track single climbs 2-1) and 4-2 in Wallony.

The Duffy single maintains its Eurochart supremacy with the help of climbs of 6-5 in Wallony and 7-6 in Germany. It holds at No. 3 in France. Also enjoying a good Eurochart week is Kid Rock's "All Summer Long" (Topdog/Atlantic), up 15-5 after rising 4-1 in Germany, 4-2 in Switzerland and holding at No. 1 in Austria, where his "Rock 'n' Roll Jesus" album is up 12-4.
