  • Johnny Buckland had a cameo appearance in Shaun of the Dead alongside Chris Martin. The top pictures shows them as zombies, and below they play themselves on TV after the outbreak has been brought under control.

  • Will Champion had a cameo in Game of Thrones. He plays a drummer at the Red Wedding in the infamous Rains of Castemere episode. If you were upset about the Stark genocide in this episode, you can just blame Coldplay.

  • Guy Berryman is an avid photographer. Some of his pictures were featured in the sleeve of A-Ha's 2009 album Foot of the Mountain. Plus, the photos of Coldplay given out to audience members on the band's Twisted Logic tour were taken by him.

  • In 1999, Will Champion was sacked from the band by Chris Martin. However, he returned to the fold when they came to the conclusion that this was a massive mistake.

  • Johnny Buckland and Chris Martin worked together before their Coldplay days. They were previously in a band called Pectoralz.

  • Will Champion has celebrated his birthday on tour many times, and each time the band have made the audience sing him Happy Birthday. In 2011, at Splendour in the Grass 60,000 people participated in front of a YouTube live stream to millions.
