Coldplay, a supportive band.

Coldplay are an English alternative rock band from London, formed in 1998. The group comprises Chris Martin (lead vocals, keyboards, guitar), Jonny Buckland (lead guitar), Guy Berryman (bass guitar), and Will Champion (drums, backing vocals, other instruments). Despite Coldplay's worldwide popularity, the band has remained protective of how their music is used in the media, refusing its use for product endorsements. In the past, Coldplay turned down multi-million dollar contracts from different famous companies, who wanted to use the songs "Yellow", "Trouble", and "Don't panic" respectively.
Coldplay supports Amnesty International.Chris Martin is regarded as one of the most visible celebrity advocates for fair trade,During the early years, Coldplay became widely known in the media for claims they gave 10% of the band's profits to donations, which they continue to do.
