Martin was filmed playing the 2014 hit at family pub The Stag Inn in Hinton Charterhouse, Bath, after a friendly chat with some patrons who seemed to be planning a wedding. While enjoying a pint at the pub, Martin appeared to have taken patrons’ request to play the song, smiling as he launched into its opening notes.
“You never know who might pop in for a pint! What a lovely man he is,” the owners of the pub wrote in their post on June 26.

Coldplay have just come off a string of North American concerts on their ‘Music of The Spheres’ world tour, and are set to resume their travels in Frankfurt, Germany this July 2. The North American leg of the tour saw Bruce Springsteen, Kylie Minogue, Lupe Fiasco and Kelly Rowland joining Coldplay onstage at various stops.
Coldplay’s Music of the Spheres world tour comes in support of their most recent album of the same name. The record, released in October last year, features guest appearances from Selena Gomez and BTS, among others.
In a four-star review of the band’s ninth studio album, NME’s Rhian Daly said it “feels like quintessential Coldplay,” praising ‘Music Of The Spheres’ as a piece of “celestial beauty that’s capable of inspiring great awe and emotion”.
