Martin hitches a ride to the Super Bowl with 'Late Late Show' host
Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and James Corden sing Coldplay hits and a David Bowie cover in the latest ‘Carpool Karaoke’.
The regular bit appears on Corden’s Late, Late Show and sees a musician or group join Corden in his car as they drive around Los Angeles and sing songs together. Other artists who have appeared on the segment before include Adele, One Direction, Justin Bieber and Rod Stewart.
In the clip, which you can see below, Corden picks up Martin as the Coldplay frontman looks for someone to take him to the Super Bowl. Coldplay will perform at the NFL event this Sunday evening (February 7) in Santa Clara.
Corden explains the rules of football before realising he doesn’t know them either while Chris Martin does an impression of Mick Jagger.
During the ride the pair sing Coldplay songs ‘Adventure Of A Lifetime,’ ‘Yellow,’ ‘Viva La Vida,’ ‘Fix You,’ ‘Hymn For The Weekend,’ ‘Paradise,’ and ‘A Sky Full Of Stars.’ They also sing David Bowie’s ‘Heroes.’
Meanwhile, Corden has also confirmed another Carpool Karaoke guest with Elton John set to join him in an episode which will air after the Super Bowl on Sunday. Elton John will join him during his special post-Super Bowl broadcast alongside fellow guests Zac Efron, Anna Kendrick and Adam DeVine.
