Before their much-awaited performance in the Super Bowl 50 Halftime show, Coldplay’s Chris Martin engaged the audience of “The Late Late Show with James Corden” in singing some of their hit songs.
The episode started with Chris Martin hitching up a ride to get to San Francisco’s Super Bowl. Luckily, James Corden was driving around and let the singer hop in on the passenger seat. The two then sang along to the greatest hits of Coldplay, where Chris Martin eventually confesses to Corden that he’s “having a nice time.”
Martin and Corden started the vibe by singing Coldplay’s “Adventure of a Lifetime,” “Yellow,” “Viva La Vida,” and “Paradise.” Then after sharing his impressions of Bruce Springsteen and Mick Jagger, the two did a short stop to grab some snacks and talked about the artists Chris Martin looks up to. Martin’s answer was “Bruce Springsteen, I look up to U2. Bruno Mars.”
From his backpack, Martin produced a mini-keyboard and began playing David Bowie’s “Heroes.” TIME sees that the two had “plenty of fun singing it.” Well, who wouldn’t? No one gets bored singing Ziggy’s songs. After jamming on a Bowie hit, their conversation revealed that Chris Martin doesn’t know much about American football, let alone the details of what really happens at the Super Bowl. We really can’t blame him for that, with their busy schedule and all.
Upon having a dose of lemonade, the two finally called it the night by staying in a roadside inn to wake up with their car stolen in the morning. Still a little luck left on their part, they found a tandem bicycle they used to get to San Francisco.
After the show, James Corden shared a quick word with EW regarding Chris Martin, “I’m such a fan of his. I’m a fan of that band – they mean the world to me. It was fun.”
Coldplay is set to perform at the Super Bowl 50 Halftime show on Sunday, along with Beyonce and Bruno Mars at the Levi’s Stadium stage in San Francisco Bay Area before the band goes on with their “A Head Full of Dreams” tour later this year.
