The band will trek through cities like Vancouver, Portland, Los Angeles, Dallas and Washington, D.C. in support of "Mylo Xyloto."

Coldplay is back on tour after nearly three years, and has set dates for a 2012 jaunt through North America. 

The tour will kick off in April 2012 at the Rexall Place in Edmonton, Canada, then come to the U.S. after a few dates. They'll play a two-night stint at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on May 1 and 2.
