Coldplay yesterday (December 16) surprised drinkers at a Somerset pub with a secret set.

The band performed at the Ring O' Bells pub in Compton Martin, where Conor Maynard, Becky Hill and Chas 'n' Dave also appeared, reports Western Daily Press.

Door staff at the local pub ensured that regulars had the chance to see the stadium-filling Coldplay in close quarters, and news of the show was kept under wraps.

A setlist posted on fansite Coldplaying reads as follows:

'The Scientist'
'God Put A Smile Upon Your Face'
'Fix You' (crossed out)
'Viva La Vida'
'Charlie Brown'
'Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall'
'Christmas Lights'

The pub is partly owned by Miles Leonard, the chairman of the band's record company, Parlophone, and in 2010 hosted a performance by Kylie Minogue. Gabrielle Aplin appeared at its launch party last year.

Coldplay appear at Kids Company And Coldplay Present: Under1roof at Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith, on Thursday (December 19), alongside performers including Rizzle Kicks, Dynamo, Lily Allen and David Brent & Foregone Conclusion.
