Chris waxed lyrical about performing with Queen B, who collaborated with them on new song Hymn For The Weekend. "She's one of our all-time favorites, and she's one of the greatest performers I've ever witnessed", Martin said.
The 34-year-old songbird, who served as a Super Bowl headliner in 2013, will join Coldplay at the Super Bowl 50 this Sunday night, February 7 in Santa Clara, California.
Martin and his bandmates will headline the half-time show at the big football game, and during a press conference on Thursday (04Feb16), the singer revealed their set will invoke a sense of home, with inspiration coming from the long-running British music festival.
Remember a year ago, when that goofy dancing "Left Shark" who was part of Katy Perry's Super Bowl halftime show became a viral sensation? "She said, 'How are you feeling about the Super Bowl?' I said, 'Of course we're a little bit nervous.' She said, 'Dad, the worst that could happen is that you'll get turned into a meme.'" This kid kills us!
"We are firmly split down the middle", drummer Will Champion said in a press conference on Thursday.
The Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos will face off this Sunday at Super Bowl 50.
"We spoke to each other about what we would like to communicate in the halftime show and we decided we wanted to make it about togetherness and acceptance, the things we really believe in, and then we called the right guests". Coldplay and Beyonce should be able to tackle the need for a wide-ranging audience.
But they reiterated they are big Beyonce fans.
"We have to try and do what comes naturally to us", said Jonny Buckland.
"I hope they'll watch".
