      Incidentally, their album X&Y seems to use a non-standard Metro-ish ampersand, which I think looks much nicer than the rather fussy Albertus one. A quick search on MyFonts doesn’t show an obvious candidate for a source.

      This looks to come from the alternative ampersand available in the metal Albertus. Not a match – the bar in the Coldplay amp is a bocky rectangle – but certainly inspired. I don’t think the alt is available in any digital version.

      The ampersand looks a lot like the one in ITC Serif Gothic.
