Coldplay have enjoyed huge success in the US
Coldplay have won seven nominations for 2009's Grammy awards, leading a strong British showing at US music's most prestigious awards ceremony.
The record of the year award will fall into British hands, with Leona Lewis, Adele, Robert Plant and M.I.A. joining Coldplay on the shortlist.
Adele and Duffy will compete for best new artist and Radiohead join Plant and Coldplay in the album of the year list.
US rapper Lil' Wayne leads the overall nominations with eight.
Plant and Radiohead have five nominations each, Adele has four.
The winners will be announced at a ceremony on 8 February.
Coldplay won best alternative album Grammys for their first two releases, and their fourth album, Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends - released in June - has been a global success.
Their nominations include best rock album, best rock song, and pop and rock performance accolades.
Led Zeppelin frontman Plant has been critically acclaimed for his album with US star Alison Krauss, Raising Sand.
The pair are nominated together for their work on the album, with their track Please Read The Letter up for record of the year.
Radiohead took the music industry by surprise last year by releasing their album In Rainbows via their website, inviting customers to pay what they thought the album was worth.
It later got a more conventional release and it is up for album of the year and best alternative album.
In addition to the five nominations for the band, producer Nigel Godrich is also up for an award for his work on the album.
Adele, who topped the BBC News Sound of 2008 poll in January, has four nominations after an incredible first year on the music scene.
The 20-year-old Londoner is up for song of the year and female pop vocal performance for Chasing Pavements.
Welsh star Duffy, who also performed strongly in Sound of 2008, has a trio of nominations, including pop vocal album for Rockferry, and pop vocal performance for Mercy.
X Factor winner Leona Lewis also has three mentions on the shortlist, with Spirit up for pop vocal album.
Christina Aguilera, Ne-Yo and the Jonas Brothers at the Grammy show
London-born singer M.I.A. has had limited mainstream success in her home country, but scored a US top five single with Paper Planes in the summer.
That song has given the 31-year-old her sole nomination, in the record of the year category.
Other British acts in the running include Sir Paul McCartney, who has received two nominations for tracks from his live EP, Amoeba's Secret.
It was recorded in a Hollywood record shop in summer 2007 and was only released in the US.
R&B star Estelle is shortlisted for best rap/sung collaboration for American Boy, which she recorded with Kanye West. It is also up for song of the year.
Heavy rock veterans Judas Priest are up for two Grammys for tracks from their album Nostradamus, while electro-pop band Hot Chip have a nod for best dance recording for Ready For The Floor.
