The band were recently crowned ‘British Artist Of The Year’ at the BBC Music Awards. Beating David Bowie to the crown, fans and viewers didn’t react well to Coldplay’s win.

While Bowie has featured in a montage obituary video to those we’ve lost in the last year, Coldplay provided live footage of them performing ‘Everglow’ during the ceremony.

Following his death, Coldplay revealed that Bowie once turned down the opportunity to collaborate with them. Singer Chris Martin sent him a letter asking him to be involved and, drummer Will Champion told NME, Bowie replied, “It’s not a very good song, is it?” Coldplay’s reaction was to not be overly phased – Champion noted, “He was very discerning – he wouldn’t just put his name to anything. I’ll give him credit for that!”
