Here’s a list of guests Ellen has had on her daytime talk show recently: Pharrell, Beck, and a rare performance by Sia. Now here’s a list of shows Coldplay have appeared on in the last few weeks: Fallon, SNL, and Jools Holland. With the former pulling in big names left and right and the latter appearing on every top-rated TV show there is, it seemed only a matter of time before they crossed paths. And that’s just what came to pass today when the band appeared on the daytime talk show in support of their new album, Ghost Stories.
There, the band performed “Magic” and “A Sky Full of Stars” amidst a colorful backdrop of stars, fog, and their new album’s artwork. Replay the former below and the latter at Ellen’s website.
