What constitutes a coordination sphere?

It's the central metal atom and the ligands attached to it.

A coordination sphere is also shown by the atoms bound by square brackets in the coordination complex formula. Ligands link to a central atom to form a complex.

The coordination sphere consists of the ligands attached to the central ion.

Ligands directly attacked to central ion make up the coordinate sphere.

The first coordination sphere is all molecules or ions directly attached the central metal atom shown below.

If you were looking at a molecular formula, you can determine what is inside the coordination sphere by looking at what is on the inside of the brackets.
