Watch Coldplay On Colbert, Today

Last night, Coldplay were guests on The Colbert Report. Chris Martin, wearing some absurd sneakers and a weird splash of paint on his wrist, sat down with Colbert himself, mostly laughing at Colbert’s jokes but also getting in a pretty funny line about Radiohead: “We are not as good musically, but much more attractive.” (It should be noted that this isn’t entirely true; Radiohead’s O.G. bald drummer is better-looking than Coldplay’s caveman-looking bald drummer.)

On the show, Coldplay performed the big current single “Paradise.” And as a web-only exclusive, they also did the falsetto-heavy Mylo Xyloto deep cut “Up In Flames.” We’ve got the interview and both performances below.

Impressively enough, Coldplay also got up early enough this morning to perform on The Today Show. We’ll have that video up as soon as it hits the internet. UPDATE: Those Today Show performances, which included a bunch of older Coldplay joints as well as new ones, are below now too. Also below, check out a video advertising a pop-up book edition of Mylo Xyloto, which looks nuts.
