Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has revealed that he trials the band’s new work on his children.

Martin admitted that around the breakfast table, he plays the band’s new songs to observe his two children’s reactions.

The singer told The Sun, “Kids are very honest - If they start singing a song it’s because they like it. It’s a great gauge.”

Martin also admitted that his children, 8-year-old Apple and 6-year-old Moses, keep his feet on the ground. He admitted that after the band’s massive stadium shows, his children bring him back to reality.

“When we played Wembley Stadium I was like ‘Wow we are now big rock stars’, but next morning the kids were saying, ‘get me some pancakes’," Martin says, giving an example of his children keeping him in touch with reality.

It just shows even stars like Chris Martin need to be reminded about their off-stage roles, in his case his duty as a parent.

Proving that it is impossible to not notice the Olympics, Martin recently joked that the Olympics distracted him after he forgot the lyrics to one of his songs during a gig in Boston.
