British bands Coldplay and Mumford & Sons have two of the UK’s biggest selling albums of 2012, according to figures released by the Official Charts Company.

Coldplay’s ‘Mylo Xyloto‘, released in October 2011, is the fifth biggest seller of the year so far, while Mumford & Sons’ second record ‘Babel‘ – a number one on both sides of the Atlantic – is at #6.

“With the busiest shopping weeks of the year upon us, there is still everything to play for for the rest of the contenders,” the Official Charts Company’s Dan Lane has said of the list, which at the moment is topped by Emeli Sande‘s debut LP ‘Our Version Of Events‘.

“Every year, the run up to Christmas sees a massive surge in CD sales and, increasingly over recent years, digital downloads on Christmas Day and Boxing Day – it is still possible for late comers such as Olly Murs’ ‘Right Place, Right Time’, Girls Aloud’s ‘Ten’, Jay-Z and Kanye West’s ‘The Throne 2′, Tulisa’s ‘The Female Boss’ and Bruno Mars’ ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’ to make a huge impact on the year end charts.”

Top 10:

1/ Emeli Sande – ‘Our Version Of Events’
2/ Adele – ’21’
3/ Lana Del Rey – ‘Born To Die’
4/ Ed Sheeran – ‘+’
5/ Coldplay – ‘Mylo Xyloto’
6/ Mumford & Sons – ‘Babel’
7/ Jessie J – ‘Who You Are’
8/ Rihanna – ‘Talk That Talk’
9/ Paloma Faith – ‘Fall To Grace’
10/ One Direction – ‘Up All Night’
