For us English folks more used to chilly grey drizzle, visiting Singapore can be like walking into an oven. The humidity wraps around you like hot cotton wool and your body seems intent on sweating out liquid faster than you can replace it from a water bottle. And the clouds seem to be of the same mind. When rain hits, they want to chuck as much water out in as short a space of time as possible.

There are some impressive storms in the afternoon and the folks queuing up outside brave the elements in a fine display of determination and loyalty. Inside, we’re all thrilled that this stadium has a roof. A Chicago-style downpour would be a rubbish way to kick things back off! Instead, tonight is a great way to resume the tour.

Coldplay haven’t visited Singapore since Viva, so the crowd are *well* up for it. They don’t seem to mind the heat. It also becomes clear that being a pasty roadie complaining about being a bit hot is pretty weak when Chris throws himself into the show with his customary athleticism from the off. Not one of the guys is holding back – and by the third song, it’s clear that the stage clothes will need a good wringing out soon. But the energy doesn’t drop until the final bow.

Also notable in this show is the first-time inclusion of Something Just Like This on the setlist. It makes a potent one-two punch with A Sky Full Of Stars in the final dash to Up&Up at the end of the show. As ever, it’s great to be back and experiencing it all after a break gives you a reminder that actually, what goes on each night is pretty special.

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.
