    Coldplay Play Secret London Gig

    Coldplay played a secret rehearsal gig which included new songs, in London on Friday in front of 40 lucky fans, a smattering of press, and other insiders.


    The band showcased new songs from their highly anticipated 3rd album. The unusually small audience of 40 comprised of label personnel, family & friends as well as a hand picked small number of fans.


    Chris introduced proceedings and they got underway with Square One, an upbeat track. This was the first glimpse into the new album and it didn't disappoint.

    The setlist was compiled alternating between one new, one old from start to finish continuing with In My Place, White Shadows, The Scientist, Speed Of Sound, Sparks ( a delightful resurrection of an old favourite, featuring soft acoustics from all 4 members), A Message, Clocks, What If. The latter is a heartfelt epic ballad that is trademark Coldplay, the diamond in the set without a doubt.


    Sadly as time drew to a close, the encore of Politik, Yellow and Fix You had to be omitted. After the performance the band chatted with guests and fans. It was a relaxed intimate atmosphere and an all round exciting experience!


    The band are set to leave for the States as they embark on a string of live dates starting with the KCRW show at Universal Ampitheatre, Los Angeles.
