Video recap of the Palladium show, as posted to the band's official Snapchat

On the day that the stripped-back single version of Everglow was released, the band played a special, intimate show for around 2,000 competition winners at the UK’s most famous theatre, in central London.

Coming in the week when Donald Trump was unexpectedly elected president of the United States, the concert proved to be a stirring, emotional occasion. During it, Chris told the audience that recent events proved that anyone really can achieve anything, and that we should all use that as a motivation to make the world a better place.

The show, which was broadcast live on Absolute Radio, also featured Chris’s beautiful solo cover of Suzzanne, by Leonard Cohen, whose passing had been announced that day.

During soundcheck, the band took the chance to jam on a new song (it sounded wonderful).

Welcome to the Coldplay Timeline

The Coldplay Timeline is a living history of the band, from their first rehearsal in 1998 to the present day. It allows you to relive their story via exclusive videos, audio, photos, blogs, interviews and handwritten notes.

There are two ways to use the site. You’ll begin at the chronological Timeline view, where you can scroll down through the years. Or, switch to Map view and see all the items with locations mapped out.

On both views, you can filter by Category and/or by Era – allowing you to search for, say, all of the video content from the X&Y era.

You can add to the Timeline too, by uploading your pictures from shows you’ve attended. We’ll also add more content over the coming days, weeks and months.

We really hope you enjoy exploring the Timeline. But if you spot any issues – or just want to give us some feedback – then drop us a line via the Contact form.
