Chris Martin (born Christopher Anthony John Martin, 02.03.1977)
Chris Martin is an English singer and musician best known for being the lead vocalist of Coldplay.
Childhood: Chris Martin was born in Whitestone, Exeter, Devon. His parents are Anthony Martin, a former accountant, and Alison Martin, a music teacher. He attended the pre-preparatory Hylton School and the preparatory Exeter Cathedral School before going on to board at Sherborne School and later enrolled at the University College London which he left with First Class honours in Greek and Latin. He formed his first band, The Rocking Honkies, at prep school with Nick Repton and Iwan Gronow. He met Phil Harvey at boarding school who would go on to manage Coldplay. He met his bandmates, Jonny Buckland, Will Champion and Guy Berryman, at university.
Musical career: Chris Martin formed Coldplay in 1998, though it was originally called Starfish. Their first song was 'Ode to Deodorant' and they achieved success with their debut album 'Parachutes' in 2000. He has been a songwriter for various artists including Embrace and Jamelia. He has also collaborated with Ron Sexsmith, Faultline, The Streets, Ian McCulloch, Nelly Furtado and on the Band Aid 20 single, 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' in 2004. In 2006, he collaborated with Jay-Z on his album 'Kingdom Come'. He continued his interest in hip hop in 2007 with a collaboration with Swizz Beatz on his song 'Part of the Plan'. He is a massive fan of U2 who was a big influence on Coldplay and he has previously said that they're the only band whose back catalogue he knows by heart. He has also always loved synthpop band a-ha.
Other career ventures: Chris Martin and guitarist Jonny Buckland made cameos in the zombie comedy 'Shaun of the Dead' in 2004 which also starred Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. His other movie/TV cameos include on Ricky Gervais' comedy series 'Extras' and Sacha Baron Cohen's 'Bruno'. He has been involved in campaigns supporting fair trade, particularly Oxfam's Make Trade Fair campaign. In 2009, he appeared in the Sound Relief benefit concert in Sydney for the devastating bushfires and flooding that had taken a toll.
Personal life: Chris Martin married Gwyneth Paltrow im 2003 and they have two children; a daughter, Apple, and a son, Moses. Simon Pegg and Jonny Buckland are Apple's godfathers. The marriage took place in a secret wedding ceremony that was so secret that no-one else was even invited. He doesn't smoke or drink and is a vegetarian. He suffers from insomnia and has previously had sleep therapy. He has also been suffering from tinnitus since he was a teenager. He supports the UK's Liberal Democrats.
Paltrow and Martin co-parent their two children, and get on well more than two years since they split.
Their now-infamous ‘conscious uncoupling’ happened over two years ago now and officially divorced as of July 2016, but Gwyneth Paltrow says that she and ex-husband Chris Martin still care very much about each other.
Speaking to InStyle magazine for its February edition, in which she graces the cover, the 44 year old actress and website owner spoke about how she and the Coldplay frontman co-operate and get on well in order to raise their two children, daughter Apple (12) and son Moses (10).
“To this day, Chris would take a bullet for me, even though I'm not his wife,” she said. “I honestly think Chris and I have contributed something positive to the culture of divorce.”

One very eager fan just couldn't keep their feelings for the Coldplay singer hidden during a show in Pittsburgh.
Coldplay frontman Chris Martin was taken aback by a fan during the band’s show in Pittsburgh, who explicitly asked the singer to have sex with them mid-show. Martin, who was formerly married to Gwyneth Paltrow, told the fan he’d have to take them for dinner first, adding that he felt like he was 15 again.
Chris Martin was propositioned during Coldplay’s recent Pittsburgh show
Martin was about to perform ‘Everglow’ from the band’s 2015 album A Head Full of Dreams, when one fan shouted: “F*** me Chris”. Taken aback Martin, who was sitting at his piano, responded: “It’s a lovely offer... I’d have to take you to dinner first, you know what I’m saying?”
The hidden talents of the stars.
It's always awesome to discover the untapped hidden talents of celebrities; talents not necessarily used to a great extent in their everyday work. Some stars - whether they're singers or actors - possess the extremely impressive knack of nailing impressions of their peers, even the ones you least expect.
Welcome to the fold, Chris
In no particular order, we've compiled a list of our favourite impressions from celebrities not necessarily famous for that talent, i.e. they're not comedians or anything, just professional pop and movie stars.

The funniest Carpool Karaoke so far.
We take it all back. We honestly thought James Corden's Carpool Karaoke couldn't get any better than the Adele edition. We were wrong. Coldplay's Chris Martin has never made us laugh this much before as he made his debut on the segment as part of Corden's CBS program 'The Late Late Show'.
James Corden and Chris Martin make the best team
So it started off with Chris literally hitching a lift to the Super Bowl in San Francisco where he's due to perform this weekend. James is willing to help him out, but clearly doesn't realise how many miles they need to cover. They're Brits in the US after all, and not so used to such massive distances people have to travel by road. Another thing they don't understand is the Super Bowl itself, which Chris hilariously tries to explain and ends up mashing together the rules of several different sports including baseball and tennis.
The band’s seventh album ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ is released on December 4th.
Coldplay have confirmed details of their first world tour since 2012’s Mylo Xyloto Tour. The A Head Full Of Dreams tour will begin in March of next year, kicking of in Buenos Aires. The tour follows the release of the band’s seventh studio album, which drops on December 4th.
Coldplay have announced their A Head Full Of Dreams world tour.
The tour sees the band playing 20 stadium shows across 14 countries in Europe and Latin America. The dates include three UK shows in Glasgow, London and Manchester. Tickets for the shows will go on general sale November 27 at 9.30am, however a pre-sale will be held at 9.30am on November 26, for anyone who pre-orders the album on Amazon before midnight on November 23.

Chris Martin has spoken for the first time about his split from Gwyneth Paltrow.

Chris Martin confirmed that their seventh album will be released on December 4th, and debuted the band's the new single.
