COLDPLAY‘s CHRIS MARTIN has arrived at the V FESTIVAL CHELMSFORD – just in time to see mates ASH play.

The singer, who arrived just moments ago in the backstage area in a blacked out car, arrived in time to see Ash, currently playing a greatest hits set, which included ‘Angel Interceptor’, ‘Girl From Mars’, ‘Kung Fu’ and ‘Oh Yeah’

An eyewitness told NME.COM: “He hardly had time to get his bags in the dressing room before he was up there on the stage cheering on his mates!”

As part of Coldplay‘s live sets in the past, Chris has covered ‘Shining Light’, while Ash have supported Coldplay in the US.
