Resident City: Los Angeles, CA
Affiliation: Manager, Coldplay

Phil Harvey is the manager and fifth member of the multi-award winning UK rock band Coldplay, one of the world’s most successful and recognizable bands. Coldplay are long-term patrons and benefactors of ClientEarth. Phil’s relationship with the band began in the late 90s, when he ended his studies at Trinity College, Oxford to manage the group, helping them establish a foothold on the north London gig circuit. From modest beginnings – 1998’s post-gig sales of self-funded EPs – Phil managed the band’s rocketing popularity. Three years later, they won Brit Awards for both Best British Band and Best Album. Much industry and popular recognition has followed since, alongside great critical acclaim. Coldplay credits Phil as “the wise, handsome, frightening one who tells us what to do.”
