It's the British Invasion: Take Two!

Coldplay's Viva la Vida was the best-selling album on iTunes for 2008, the music downloading service has announced. The album featuring frontman Chris Martin (a.k.a. Mr. Gwyneth Paltrow) has sold more than 2 million copies since being released in June – and has sold more than 500,000 digitally, the Associated Press reports.

Another Brit, Leona Lewis, claimed the year's top-selling single with her addictively catchy hit "Bleeding Love."

According to iTunes, she edged out Coldplay's title track (which came in at No. 2), followed by Flo Rida's "Low," Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl" and Rihanna's "Disturbia."

As far as albums go, the top five is an eclectic bunch, with Coldplay joined by Jack Johnson's Through the Static, the Juno soundtrack, Lil Wayne's Tha Carter III and Sara Bareilles' Little Voice.
