Video released ahead of Remembrance Sunday

Coldplay have unveiled a new video for the track 'All Your Friends' featuring various footage recorded during World War I.

The song is taken from their most recent album ‘Ghost Stories’ and the video arrives ahead of Remembrance Sunday, which takes place tomorrow (November 9) to commemorate British and Commonwealth military servicemen and women. The lyrics also reference the poppy, a familiar emblem of Remembrance Sunday.

The band are currently preparing to release a live DVD and Blu-ray described as a "visual representation" of 'Ghost Stories'. Filmed by director Paul Dugdale, Ghost Stories Live 2014 was recorded in March 2014 in a custom-built amphitheatre at Sony Studios, Los Angeles.

"The 'Ghost Stories' show at Sony Studios was a very special moment for our band," said frontman Chris Martin, speaking last month. "The magic theatre built by our incredible crew with the 360 [degree] screens was literally a dream come true. And it was the first time anyone outside of our studio had heard the new songs. This film is basically our original vision for the 'Ghost Stories' album."
