    You can try to get tickets thru the Today Show. if you do not have tickets ppl are lined up the night before and even with tickets we got there at 4 am the first year they played to get a good spot. It is all GA but broken up into sections

    March is cold ppl, dress warmly and pray it does not rain

    EDIT and once you are in you cannot leave your spot

    OMG, Coldplay coming to NYC ???!!!
    I just applied for a fan pass ! It would be a dream come true if this worked out. I have two questions, for people like @Christa42 who know more about this than me:

    - It says only for legal US residents. Does that mean I can't go if I am in the US on a visa ? Do I have to be American Citizen ? Or does it just mean you have to be in the US on a legal basis ?
    - I'm from MA, and going to NYC (by bus) would be a big thing for me. Is is worth going there even if I don't get a fan pass and trying to line up ? Or are events like these so overbooked that I will in all likelihood be turned away if I have no ticket ?

    I do not know but you should call about the legal status information, If you do not have a pass they will be lining up the night before, we saw them with our very eyes sleeping on the streets, very dedicated fans. There is only so much room on the plaza, I do not want to discourage you in not going but it would be best to have a fan pass and then if you do you should get there by 4-5 am.

    RSVP to get the inside scoop on how you can be part of the show.

    A limited number of Fan Passes are available by advanced request via a digital lottery system. Guests who receive the Fan Pass will be notified by email about one week prior to the scheduled concert date.
    Each Fan Pass is valid for 2 guests. Please note that admission is not guaranteed unless guests follow all Fan Pass instructions and arrive to check in by 6 a.m.
    Passes are non-transferrable. ID is required at check-in.
    If you do not receive a Fan Pass, you can still join the general admission line on 48th Street between 5th and 6th Avenue on the morning of the concert.

    More info here.

    So fellow Coldplayers, I'm gonna do a similar thing as with Global Citizen:

    I applied for a fan pass and if I get one, I will invite a fellow Coldplayer from Coldplaying to join me for the second spot !! (Only condition: Be there to line up early!)
    Vice versa, if you are a Coldplayer who wins a fan pass but doesn't know who to go with, I'd be happy if you invite me along for the second spot.

    Let me know if you are interested in this !

    Has anyone heard back yet from the TODAY show ? Cause they said they would notify you about a week before if you were successful or not, which would mean possibly today...

    Sooo... has anyone done the Today show with a fan pass before? I went to the Today show many years ago without a pass and I was pretty freakin' far back in the crowd. My understanding is that there is a pit in front of the stage where the camera crew works. Then there is the VIP section. Then there is a "radio pass" area. Then there is the fan pass area. Then the rest of the hoi polloi who get to watch from Pluto.

    I just received notification in an e-mail that I have won a fan pass!

    So if you are Citibank you can take up to 4 people ? Anyone here who has a Citibank card but doesn't have 4 friends to go with (and thus would have a spot free ?)
    Or anyone else with a free spot ?

    I didn't get any email :(
