"Sparks" is the fourth song on Coldplay's debut album, Parachutes
. The 10-song collection scooped British Album of the Year at the BRIT Awards in 2001 and Best Alternative Music Album at the Grammy Awards in 2002.
The spinning globe on the album cover was shot on a disposable camera by Chris Martin. It can also be seen in the music videos for "Shiver
" and "Don't Panic" and was used as a prop on their world tour to support the album.
