2016 looks like it will be a busy year for Coldplay. They have been confirmed as the half-time show headliners during February’s American Football Super Bowl 50 event. They will follow that up with an appearance at the Brit Awards alongside Adele and Justin Bieber in London.
The band will also set off on a world tour, kicking off in South and Central America in March 2016 before heading to the UK in June.
Coldplay shared the video for their latest single ‘Adventure of a Lifetime’ late last year, check it out below:
