Coldplay: Mylo Xyloto

"Pressed about the title, Mr. Martin described a kind of mythical character signifying the wonder of artistic inspiration. 'Music comes from a place we don’t know,' he said. 'It sort of comes through the fingers and toes. So we came up with the idea of, what if you had musical digits, like xylo toes.' He shook his head, irritated that he gave up the secret so easily. And what about 'Mylo'? 'It’s just a great name,' he said. 'For anything'" (Ben Sisario, "Chris Martin of Coldplay Asks: What Would Bruce Do?," New York Times, 10/13/11).
