The Coldplay frontman will now curate festivals for Global Citizen, an organisation that aims to solve extreme poverty by 2013.
After his days as the frontman of Coldplay are over, it seems Chris Martin wants to focus his attention on helping global issues. As the release of the British band's expected final studio album, 'A Head Full of Dreams,' approaches, the 37-year-old frontman recently announced he is now the curator of the Global Citizen Festival, for the next 15 years.
Martin will be the curator for Global Citizen festivals for the next 15 years
Music's biggest names should expect to get a call from Martin in the near future as he will be tasked with setting up festivals around the world for Global Citizen, which is a non-profit organisation that aims to solve extreme poverty by the year 2030. Martin's 15-year commitment also runs parallel with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a "to-do list" to end global poverty in the same year.

The 'Iron Man' actress gave an interview to next month's edition of Marie Claire and spoke about her divorce from Chris Martin.
Nearly a year after the now infamous ‘conscious uncoupling’, actress Gwyneth Paltrow has opened up. Speaking in the February issue of Marie Claire magazine, Paltrow shed some light of her own on why she and her husband called it a day after more than a decade of marriage.
The 42 year old said: “There was nothing dramatic or anything. I had built my life on trying to be all things to all people, and I just couldn’t do it anymore. I really had the sense that I wasn’t allowed to have needs, and I had to prove my specialness or self-worth by doing all this stuff and taking care of everybody else, and I just sort of hit a wall.”
Gwyneth Paltrow spoke about the 'unconscious uncoupling' for the first time

US Weekly reports that the Coldplay frontman has purchased a 7,700-square-foot, five-bedroom, seven-bathroom home in Brentwood, California, for the pricey sum of $6.75 million.

The new couple continue with their bid for privacy while the public continue to ignore their wishes
Everyone knows what the first few months of a new relationship is like: the excitement; the bubble with just the two of you; the brilliance of always being together; and the sickening way you tell everyone else you never want to be apart. Unfortunately, when you’re the lead singer of a rock band and an Oscar-winning actress those wonderfully scary and delightfully uncertain moments are not only shared with each other but also with a world of eagle-eyed fans.
J-Law likes her men British: the actress is rumoured to be dating Chris Martin after breaking up with X-Men actor, Nicholas Hoult
Although there has been no confirmation from either Jennifer Lawrence or Chris Martin of a romance and no real image of the pair engaging in each other’s company, speculation remains heightened as the media continue to stumble upon them in places that are never very far away from each other.
'Ghost Stories' tour kicks off in September in Las Vegas - will Jen be there?
All the hot gossip over the last few weeks has had it that Coldplay frontman Chris Martin is romantically involved with actress Jennifer Lawrence. More fuel has been added to that bonfire with the rumour that Lawrence will be joining the band on their upcoming US tour.
Coldplay’s new tour to promote recent sixth album Ghost Stories will be briefer than previous ones, only stopping at a handful of major cities such as New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Lawrence has some free time in her schedule as her two new movies – Joy and X-Men: Apocalypse – are currently in the pre-production stages.

Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence is apparently dating Coldplay frontman, Chris Martin. The news came following Lawrence's split from her X-Men co-star, Nicholas Hoult in June 2014.
Apparently, flirting began at a party following a Coldplay concert in July of this year. Martin had been single since March when he split up with his wife, Gwyneth Paltrow after being married for ten years. Rumours began to circulate in various US media outlets before recently appearing in UK newspapers.
Jennifer recently split from X-Men co-star Nicholas Hoult
Ten years after marrying fitness loving Paltrow, who has a strict excercise routine and enjoys a healthy diet, Martin has made a complete U-turn by dating the junk-food-enjoying smoker Lawrence. It has been suggested that this opposite lifestyle is what Martin finds attractive in Lawrence.
Rumours are rife on the internet that actress Jennifer Lawrence and Coldplay singer Chris Martin are dating.
According to E! Online Coldplay singer Chris Martin and Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence are seeing each other. The report by the entertainement news website claims "multiple sources" have confirmed that the pair have been seeing each other since late June, when Lawrence split from her on/off boyfriend, actor and X-Men co-star Nicholas Hoult.
The rumour mill is at it again with these two stars

The couple appear to remain on friendly terms in spite of their 'conscious uncoupling'
Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow were seen together at a movie screening on Monday evening, and “seemed really happy together” according to an onlooker.
Chris Martin was spotted with Gwyneth at a film screening in New York this week
The pair, whose ‘conscious uncoupling’ earlier this year was widely reported, both attended a screening of Hector and the Search for Happiness at East Hampton, New York. Paltrow hosted the evening for comedy actor Simon Pegg, who stars in the film and is a long-time friend of both her and Martin. He is also godfather to the couple’s first child Apple, and Martin in return is godfather to Pegg’s daughter Tilly.

Everything seems clear on the Paltrow/Martin front.
Conscious uncoupling or not, there may still be hope for Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin – in the friendship department, at least. Multiple sources, including Us Weekly, report that the pair looked completely at ease with one another, when they attended the premiere of Hector and the Search of Happiness on Monday, July 28, in East Hampton.
Post-separation, Patrow and Martin are keeping things civil and even friendly.
The former couple reportedly stuck together throughout the event and the afterparty.
Poor Gwyn can't keep herself away from the tabloids' scorn.
Gwyneth Paltrow has yet again found herself in the midst of a sea of derision over comments she has made about...well, life. Obviously there was the whole "conscious uncoupling" debacle, then there was the time she compared her internet struggles to real life war and then the constant use of ingredients like "mint flavored liquid chlorophyll" in recipes on her lifestyle blog, Goop.
The latest controversy? It's another Goop goof: after Gwyneth used her blog to announce her split from Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, all eyes have been on her online journal for more developments. This time, the 41 year-old Iron Man star talks about "the energy of consciousness" and suggests that water may be a sentient element with feelings.
"I am fascinated by the growing science behind the energy of consciousness and its effects on matter," Paltrow writes. "I have long had Dr. Emoto's coffee table book on how negativity changes the structure of water, how the molecules behave differently depending on the words or music being expressed around it," she adds, citing the work of Dr. Sadeghi, an entrepreneur who has been widely criticized for his theories.

Chris Martin stuck around in Glasgow to help Kings of Leon kick off the Big Weekend's Day Two
Chris Martin has given Sunday fans at Radio One’s Big Weekend a special treat by making a special appearance, joining Kings Of Leon on stage to open the final day of the festival in Glasgow. The night before Martin and Coldplay had closed the first night of the festival, leading the crowd in a chorus of 'Fix You'.
Coldplay closed The Big Weekend's opening night
Martin added his guitar skills to the song ‘Fans’ from the bands 2007 album Because of the Times. The Nashville rockers then closed their set with a roaring rendition of 2008 hit ‘Sex is on Fire’ for the some 25,000 fans at the free music festival.
Chris’s ‘Ghost Stories’ of Gwyneth lead to Coldplay topping the UK album chart.
Coldplay on stage at Radio One's Big Weekend
Ghost Stories landing on means Coldplay are not only enjoying their sixth consecutive number one album, but now also have the fasted selling album of the year so far. Since last Monday, Ghost Stories has sold an impressive 168,000 copies, beating previous best seller Paolo Nutini’s Caustic Love which sold 109,000 in its first week in April. They’ve also managed to knock Michael Jackson’s Xscape down to the number two spot just one week after its release.
Has Chris Martin's personal life influenced his band's new record a little too much?
The release of Coldplay's sixth studio album, Ghost Stories, is imminent. We already know that the British indie rockers have embarked on a sleeker, more electronic sound for their new record thanks to singles 'Midnight' and 'Magic' but must turn to early critics to find out the verdict on the entire nine song collection.
The Release Of Coldplay's 'Ghost Stories' Is Just Around The Corner.
Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on whether you take the view that all publicity is good publicity), the new album will land at a time that is a little too close to the very public "conscious uncoupling" of Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and his wife, Gwyneth Paltrow.
Chris Martin and Coldplay dedicated 'Fix You' to Mick Jagger in New York.
Coldplay's Chris Martin dedicated a rendition for Fix You for the grieving Rolling Stones man Mick Jagger during a show at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. "It's for Mick Jagger," Martin told the crowds, just days after a memorial was held for Jagger's longtime girlfriend, fashion designer L'Wren Scott.

Coldplay extended a tribute to Sir Mick Jagger at a show earlier this week.
Coldplay spread the love to fellow rocker Mick Jagger Rolling Stones on Monday. During Coldplay’s show in New York City on Monday, May 5, Chris Martin seemed to give his condolences to The Rolling Stones frontman over the death of his partner L’Wren Scott. Scott, who committed suicide in March, had dated Jagger since 2001. From the stage, Martin simply said: “This is for Mick Jagger.”
The song, which includes lyrics like: "When tears come streaming down your face/ When you lose something you can't replace/ When you love someone and it goes to waste/ Could it be worse?" made for a pointed tribute to the tragedy.
Martin stuck up for his fellow musician.

Chris Martin has opened up to Radio 1's Zane Lowe regarding his split from Oscar-winning actress, Gwyneth Paltrow.
Chris Martin has confirmed that his new single, Magic, was written about the breakdown of his relationship with Gwyneth Paltrow. The couple, who had been married for ten years, decided to end their marriage in March, announcing their “conscious uncoupling” on Paltrow’s website GOOP.
Chris Martin seems to imply that his split was Paltrow was his fault
For the first time since the split was revealed, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has spoken out. In a Radio 1 interview with Zane Lowe, Martin seemed to imply that the split was his fault. Martin told Lowe, “What changed for me was - I don’t want to go through life being scared of it, being scared of love, being scared of rejection, being scared of failure. Ever since our band came out, we have been a very polarising group because we do a certain thing very well…About two years ago I was a mess really because I can’t enjoy the thing that we are good at and I can’t enjoy the great things about me because I’m burdened by this - I’ve got to not blame anyone else and make some changes.”

Yep, you heard right. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin allegedly had an "uncoupling ceremony", what on earth does that mean?
So, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin allegedly took their decision to ‘consciously uncouple’ one step further, if that’s even possible. The pair are said to have asked a Kabbalah Rabbi to officiate an ‘uncoupling ceremony’ for the pair, which took place during their ‘break-up-moon’ in the Bahamas. We’ll ask pretty much the same question here that we asked when Gwyneth announced their split on her website GOOP. What the heck is an ‘uncoupling ceremony’? It sounds like some sort of hippy exorcism.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin announced the end of their marriage two weeks ago
The rabbi supposedly officiated the ceremony, which the couple chose to have on a beach in the Bahamas. They were instructed to read from a sacred book, light a fire and throw stones in to the sea. The stones were meant to symbolise the solidity of their relationship, while throwing them in the sea represented their “wandering spirits”. We’ve got to admit, as crazy as it sounds, it also sounds pretty Paltrow, so we're sort of inclined to believe there's a bit of truth to it.

Amid rumours of affairs and planned family trips to the Bahamas, Chris Martin's father claims his son's split from actress Gwyneth Paltrow is "amicable".
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin announed their split on Tuesday.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin don't even divorce like normal people, why have they chosen to "consciously uncouple" instead?
We have a sneaking suspicion that it was Gwyneth Paltrow, and not Chris Martin, who decided to label their separation a "conscious uncoupling". Why, you ask? Well, come on, it’s just a Paltrow thing to do.
Gwyneth Paltrow has labeled her divorce a "conscious uncoupling"
The couple have decided to split after over a decade of marriage. We have to admit, we are rather sad about the news, in the world of unexpected unions they stood for a bridging of normality and celebrity, although it turns out that the two worlds really were just too far apart. The pair released a statement, explaining, “It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate. We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate.”
The actress and the musician have announced their split after ten years of marriage.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have shocked their fans by announcing their split after ten years of marriage. The news, which was announced via Gwyneth's lifestyle blog GOOP, is said to be the sad result after a year of trying to work it out. It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate," they wrote.

"We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate," the Anglo-American couple added. They moved on to stress that they wouldn't fall out of each other's lives due to their need to be the best parents to their children, Moses, 7, and Apple, 9.
The celebrity couple, who publically announced their relationship as come to an end, reassured that they will remain close: "We are, however, and always will be a family."
Gwyneth Paltrow and her signing beau, Chris Martin, have called it a day on their marriage. The pair, who married in December 2003, made the announcement of their relationship coming to an end via the 41 actress's own website, Goop, on Tuesday (March 25th).

Kate Winslet has named her new baby son Bear Blaze, but some of these other celebrity baby names are even more out of the ordinary.
Children of celebrities never have to go to normal schools where the other children will make fun of their wacky names, which means that the stars can go wild when naming their pampered offspring. There must be schools in Beverly Hills teaming with Donatello Zeuses and Princess Bananaramas.
You don’t come across many Janes or Johns in the celeb baby world, but funnily there seems to be a few Bears going around at the moment. Kate Winslet and Alicia Silverstone both have sons called Bear, although to set mini Winslet apart his middle name is Blaze, as a reminder of the house fire that his parents first met in. Romantic. As a side note, Winslet's husband changed his own name to Ned RocknRoll, so we're not surprised that the couple have chosen a name that is a little less out of the ordinary.

The Brit rockers shared new songs from their upcoming 'Ghost Stories' album.
Last night, Coldplay took to the stage at Texas' South by Southwest Festival where they debuted new material from forthcoming album Ghost Stories alongside well-worn favourites. Support acts London Grammar and Imagine Dragons were big enough names for the crowd to pick out songs from each that they recognised but the former had the air of "evidently nervous musicians still working out how to feel comfortable commanding an audience," according to The Guardian's Tim Jonze.
Coldplay Played A Triumphant Comeback Show At SXSW Last Night In Austin, Texas.
Whereas Imagine Dragons "threw the kitchen sink at the audience in an attempt to make that vital emotional connection." Luckily for Coldplay, such effects come almost too naturally to the British rockers who seem to soundtrack every wedding first dance, graduation party, or Olympic triumph.

Coldplay pull a "Beyoncé" and y'know what, it's not bad at all.
Coldplay have suddenly and unexpectedly released a brand new single, 'Midnight,' and accompanying music video which launched on YouTube today. The first signs of an announcement came when the British band wrote the cryptic tweet "Something new at 0:00 in Ulaanbaatar #midnight PH," seemingly referring to the capital city of Mongolia.
Coldplay Have Pulled A Beyoncé, Releasing New Single 'Midnight' Unexpectedly.
It didn't take fans long to work out how to research time zones to learn when to check Twitter again for more news from the band. Sure enough, a couple of hours afterwards, the band tweeted: "Here is the video for our new song, Midnight. http://youtu.be/BQeMxWjpr-Y " and lo! the people were given 'Midnight,' Coldplay's new single.

Graydon Carter compared the actress to the North Korean dictator following a controversy.
Graydon Carter, the editor of Vanity Fair, has lifted the lid on a monumental feud between his magazine and the actress Gwyneth Paltrow. According to Carter, issues arose when Paltrow threatened to boycott the magazine to prevent them from releasing an "epic take-down" piece that would have reportedly been image-damaging for the Iron Man star.
Gwyneth Paltrow Pulled The Curtains Down On A Vanity Fair Article About Her.
Carter likened Paltrow to the evil Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un after she was successful in influencing the magazine to run a less harsh piece in the December 2013 issue by demanding that neither her friends nor family should communicate with the magazine. "Not to bore you with the details," Carter writes via the March 2014 Editor's letter, "but the whole Vanity Fair - Gwyneth Paltrow brouhaha began innocently enough at a routine morning editorial meeting last spring," via Vanity Fair.
It's Christmas in the Aniston household! The 'Friends' actress throws a pretty rockin' party.
Jennifer Aniston has celebrated the festive season by throwing another major Hollywood Christmas party, cramming her estate to the rafters with A-list stars and friends old and new. Co-hosting with her fiancé Justin Theroux, Jennifer made sure as many big Hollywood names as possible were in attendance, drawing an enviable roster of guests that included Robert Downey Jr., Chelsea Handler, Courtney Cox, Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin, Tobey Maguire, Jason Bateman and Will Arnett.
Jennifer Aniston Sure Knows How To Rock A Party.
A seasoned party-thrower and goer, Jennifer told Parade magazine her tried and tested hosting tips to make any festive bash a success. "There's usually three different kinds of chili at the tree-trimming party. There's a vegetarian chili, a turkey chili and a good ol' beef chili," the actress said. "I can't honestly say I make that, but I do make some Rice Krispies treats and hot chocolate. My best hostess tip is to have good food and really good music! We usually put on the Charlie Brown Christmas album. That's my favorite. And then we'll go to Bing Crosby and stuff like that."
