Coldplay Daily would like to wish Coldplay’s golden guy and front man, Chris Martin a VERY Happy Birthday. Chris turned 35 today and is in the U.S. doing promotional work with the boys, and celebrating in between!
An inspiration to us all, 35 years ago to this day, a star was born. Check out this photo taken today of Chris and the boys at Good Morning America, and also be sure to see this adorable photo of Chris back in the day, when he was just starting out in the band.

Roadie #42 - Blog #164
New Year’s Day is often referred to as “guaranteed first hangover of the year”. For the British music industry, I’d hazard a guess that the day after the BRIT Awards sees a hilariously impressive spike in the number of email accounts set to auto-respond with “I’m not in the office today”.
Somewhat disappointingly - or indeed not, I find myself fully able to function today. But then, I did have a job to do last night…

Coldplay win at the BRITs!
Congratulations to our amazing boys for winning the ‘Best British Group’ award at the BRIT Awards 2012, on Tuesday night.
After the gong was handed to them, Chris took to Twitter to express his thanks and his tweets included ‘Thank you so much to anyone who voted and got us a Brit tonight. It means a lot to us.’
The boys also performed the new single ‘Charlie Brown’, which you can see here.

Princess Of China: Official Lyric Video
Check out the official lyric video to Coldplay’s fabulous duet with Rihanna - Princess Of China, which will be performed at this years BRIT Awards.
L.A Hiatus, back soon!
As some of you may know, as I mentioned on Twitter - I’m going away for 7 days to the city of angels… Los Angeles! Obviously this means that I miss updating on MAJOR events like the Grammys and BRIT Awards which Coldplay are both nominated and performing at. I will update on both of these things and more though, as soon as I get back.
I get back from L.A on the night on 19th February and it will probably take me a few days to get back in order, unpack and sort myself out, so expect tweets a few days later from my return date and proper posts later on. If anyone has any questions about the trip after I get back, then feel free to either tweet me on my personal twitter account or the official Coldplay Daily twitter account!
See you all soon!
