Most likely, they got too hot somewhere between Wyeast and your fridge and were DOA. They are living organisms and are not heat tolerant. When you said "they arrived" I am assuming that meant you got them via mail. Even with cold packs this occurs all too often. Many keep a couple of sachets of dry yeast to use when this happens.
If you bought them from a local shop, this should not have happened, but still can (and has). If this is the case, I'd go back to the store and request replacement. Not all shops will replace them, but you may have success.
I'd wait another day or so before declaring failure.
