The couple announced their split in March 2014 after ten years of marriage.
When Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin announced their separation in March 2014, it was the couple’s choice of wording which made the most lasting impression. Saying the were ‘consciously uncoupling’, Paltrow is yet to live the phrase down, even though the pair managed to divorce on the best terms.
Gwyneth Paltrow has spoken about life after her divorce from Chris Martin.
Speaking to Matt Lauer on ‘Today’, Paltrow said: "I unwittingly created a whole sort of hoopla with my choice of words. It wasn't my words actually. I was sort of following a theory.” Both Paltrow and Martin are still close despite the divorce and continue to co-parent their two children.

The British band were announced as the first headliners for this year’s festival earlier this week.
A petition has been launched on change.org in reaction to Coldplay’s headlining slot at this year’s Glastonbury Festival. But the British rock band need not worry about it yet, as the petition is actually a joke, meant to highlight the ridiculousness of the one started last year when Kanye West was announced as headlining the festival.
Do you want Coldplay to headline Glastonbury?
The petition, started by Felicity Martin, is titled ‘Cancel Coldplay's headline slot and get a rock band’. ‘Coldplay are an insult to music fans all over the world,’ the description reads. ‘We spend hundreds of pounds to attend glasto, and by doing so, expect a certain level of entertainment. Lets prevent this musical injustice now!’

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 couple are still close despite their failed marriage.
It's always depressing when Hollywood power couples find themselves moving on from each other, but it softens the blow to know that they still make an awesome team. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are just such an example, as the actress admits that her ex-husband is now more like a brother to her since 'consciously uncoupling'.
Gwyneth Paltrow maintains a strong bond with the father of her children
When celebrity marriages break-up, the word 'amicably' is thrown in there more often than not; a word that usually only fuels the cynic within us. However, Paltrow and Martin appear to be truly still amicable, baffling the media with photos of the pair taking vacations and day trips together with their children Apple, 11, and Moses, 9, in the months following their separation.

Carpool Karaoke at its best.
The next edition of James Corden's Carpool Karaoke looks to be an exciting one, as Chris Martin hitchhikes to the Super Bowl in San Francisco for his performance at the weekend. It's always funny when it's all Brits together, but can the pair stand more than 400 miles in a car together?
Chris Martin is the latest guest on Carpool Karaoke
A sneak peak of tonight's episode of 'The Late Late Show' on CBS has been unveiled, featuring snippets from James Corden's latest Carpool Karaoke. This time, he 'happens' to pick up Coldplay frontman Chris Martin in Los Angeles as he thumbs a lift holding a sign reading 'Superbowl San Francisco'.

After being sent the track Bowie bluntly told the band, ‘It’s not one of your best.”
Coldplay have revealed they were once rejected by David Bowie when they asked the legendary singer to appear on one of their songs. Speaking to the NME, the band said that Bowie bluntly told them ‘It’s not a very good song, is it?’ after singer Chris Martin wrote to him asking for a collaboration.
Coldplay were once turned down by David Bowie.
"Chris [Martin] once submitted a song to him with a note that said, 'Would you please sing on this song, because it's got this three-part thing,' and we had a sort of David Bowie–type character," drummer Will Champion told the NME.
Andy Cohen’s talk show is always a great way to get some dirt out of celebrities and J-Law certainly didn't disappoint.
Jennifer Lawrence was Andy Cohen’s guest on Monday’s edition of ‘Watch What Happens Live’ and the actress’ appearance was full of interesting revelations. For instance J-Law admitted that she’s shared a smooch with Hunger Games co-star Liam Hemsworth, off-screen!
Jennifer Lawrence has admitted to kissing Liam Hemsworth off-screen.
When asked by Cohen if she and Hemsworth had ever kissed when the cameras weren't rolling, Lawrence replied: “Liam and I grew up together. Liam's real hot. What would you have done?…Yeah, I have.”
Fans had been worried that there may be a long wait before they could stream Coldplay’s latest album.
Coldplay’s seventh studio album A Head Full of Dreams will be available to stream on Spotify from this Friday (December 11th), it has been confirmed. The album was officially released on December 4th and is currently battling Adele’s 25 for the number one spot in the US and UK album charts.
Coldplay’s A Head Full of Dreams will be available on Spotify.
Fans has worried that there might be a long wait for the album to reach Spotify, much like their 2014 record Ghost Stories, which was withheld from the service for four months. Their previous effort Mylo Zyloto, took three months to reach Spotify.

It's the first picture of the ex-couple since they broke up in March 2014.
They may have ‘consciously uncoupled’ over a year ago, but Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow are determined to show that it doesn’t mean they can’t still do family events together as they shared a picture of themselves and their wider family settling down together for Thanksgiving dinner.
It’s the first time that the ex-couple, who separated in March 2014 while grabbing headlines for that marvellous phrase used on Paltrow’s website Goop, have shared a picture of themselves together since their split.
Also in the big family picture, posted on Instagram on Thursday (November 26th) were their two children, 11 year old Apple and 9 year old Moses. In accordance with their parents’ wishes for privacy, their faces are rarely seen in paparazzi shots, so this was a rare treat for fans of celeb children.
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.

The former couple’s two children – daughter Apple, 11, and son Moses, 9 – also feature on the band’s seventh album A Head Full of Dreams, according to the singer, as well as Blue Ivy Carter, the 3 year old daughter of his celebrity pals Jay Z and Beyonce. Previously announced guest vocalists have included Beyonce herself, Noel Gallagher and Swedish chanteuse Tove Lo.

The 'Hunger Games' and 'X-Men' star, the highest earning actress in Hollywood, admitted that even she has trouble dating.
She may be the highest-paid female actor in Hollywood, but Jennifer Lawrence says that she has trouble finding a date, claiming that she spends most weekend evenings alone.
“No one ever asks me out. I am lonely every Saturday night. Guys are so mean to me,” the 25 year old complained to Vogue for its December issue. “I know where it’s coming from, I know they’re trying to establish dominance, but it hurts my feelings. I’m just a girl who wants you to be nice to me. I am straight as an arrow.”

Things seem to be running smoothly for Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin as Lawrence was once again there to support her new beau at his recent performance in Los Angeles.
Jennifer Lawrence at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.
Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin were at the same event over the weekend and many words were written about it.
Jennifer Lawrence was spotted at iHeartRadio over the weekend and the tabloids are having a fit over it. But why would it matter that a celebrity attended a well known musical event, you ask? Well, J-Law’s rumoured new bae, Chris Martin, was also in the vicinity, playing a gig with Coldplay. Instead of the giving all the paps there a good PDA, the supposed couple practically ignored each other while the cameras were on.
Is this a budding romance? The evidence is inconclusive.
In fact, the only photos snapped of the alleged new couple (the two are yet to confirm the relationship) show Lawrence walking past Martin without a second glance. According to E! News, which published the new photos, Lawrence was seen walking into Coldplay’s dressing room. And the plot thickens – Lawrence was followed not long after by Taylor Swift herself.

The ALS awareness campaign continues as more celebrities go under the water
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has been surfing the celebrity world for some time now with famous faces all over the world taking the plunge in order to draw attention to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and encourage donations to its research. The latest stars to succumb to the cold water are Coldplay frontman, Chris Martin, fashion designer Stella McCartney and supermodel Kate Moss, with the former two joining up together to complete their nomination.
Singer Chris Martin is the latest in a long line of celebrities to take on the Ice Bucket Challenge in aid of ALS
Martin and McCartney were both nominated by the singer’s estranged wife, Gwyneth Paltrow and did not seem too keen to accept their selection at first.
The Coldplay star has emerged from tough times to play an intimate London gig.
Chris Martin is a man saved; by music, that is. The Coldplay musician has endured a tough year plastered over the tabloids with his recently divorced ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow, propelled by the unforgivably grating 2014 buzzphrase, "conscious uncoupling."
In the midst of the gossip and gloom, Martin and his Coldplay bandmates released Ghost Stories, a melancholy album of electronica dabblings suffused with the inevitable emotional turmoil of a relationship breakdown. The British quartet brought their latest chart-topping record and a selection of other hits to London's Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday night for a stripped-back and intimate performance.
Inviting fans at the sold-out show to be as close as workably possible, Coldplay managed to make the gig feel a tenth of the size; an illusion helped by the seeming absence high vis-clad concert wardens, a photo pit or heavy onstage theatrics. Instead, the band placed an emphasis on the stripped back aesthetic to give a reassuring "calm after the storm" vibe.
Gwyneth Paltrow is nice to water.
Gwyneth Paltrow, the 41-year-old Hollywood person who is actually a pretty good actress as well as a mother to two children, has claimed that saying negative things to water can hurt its feelings. Writing on her clean living website GOOP, Paltrow said she has been following the work of Japanese scientist Masaru Emoto, whose experiments to attempt to investigate whether human consciousness has a direct effect on the molecular structure of water.
Gwyneth Paltrow Thinks Water Has Feelings
His theories suggest that getting angry and shouting at a bag of rice could turn it bad.

The 37 year-old singer admitted his own issues were the main reason for his marriage with the Hollywood actress to deteriorate: "I've got to not blame anyone else and make some changes."
Chris Martin is taking the blame for his separation from wife of ten years, Gwyneth Paltrow.
It has just been one month since the Coldplay frontman and his actress wife's 'Unconscious Uncoupling' announcement was made, and the pair have remained fairly silent about it until now.
Well one of them has at least, Martin candidly spoke about his marriage ending in an interview promoting Coldplay's new album, 'Ghost Stories,' with BBC Radio 1.
Since the divorce, the no-longer couple have escaped to the Bahamas.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s “conscious uncoupling“ has been the talk of the internet for about two weeks now, possibly because she used the term “conscious uncoupling” to describe it. But it turns out that the Iron Man actress had intended to keep her divorce from Coldplay frontman Chris Martin a secret for as long as possible. According to the New York Post’s Page Six, Paltrow would have been perfectly happy to keep up appearances and give the impression that the marriage was just fine for a few more months. Apparently, Martin was the one who thought it was “wrong” to lead people on.
Paltrow did not want to make a lot of noise around her divorce.
A source told Page Six's Richard Johnson: 'It was his idea to announce the split. They had drifted apart, and there was no chance they'd get back together, so he felt it was wrong to keep pretending.'

The no-longer-couple are determined to keep it together.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin recently went through what Paltrow described as “a conscious uncoupling”, but it was all just as civil as it sounds apparently. According to the Iron Man actress, speaking for People Magazine, there are no grudges between her and her soon-to-be-former husband.
Paltrow and Martin tried to work it out for a year before announcing the separation.
In fact, the couple have taken steps to ensure that the transition is as easy as possible on their two children and to avoid the media fuss as much as possible. On Monday – one day before the official announcement, Paltrow and the Coldplay frontman jetted off to the Bahamas, with their two kids, Apple, 9½, and Moses, 7½, and a source close to the Oscar-winning actress tells PEOPLE it's a sign of their determination to set their differences aside and put the needs of their family first.

Gwyneth Paltrow's mother allegedly "begged" her daughter not to end her decade long marriage to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.
It's a separation which has gripped the news for almost a week but we're still no closer to knowing the truth about the inner workings of the Martin-Paltrow marriage, let alone their split. Things haven't been made any clearer either with Martin's father commenting on his son's separation from award winning actress Paltrow. Meanwhile sources suggest Paltrow's mother is less than supportive of her daughter and son-in-law's decision.
Martin's father, Antony, appears to be taking news of his son's separation well and maintains the separation was "amicable" and the two are "still great mates". However, Paltrow's mother would disagree and is less than happy about her daughter's decision to end her decade long marriage. Actress Blythe Danner, Paltrow's mother, is allegedly "really upset" sources close to the 71-year-old told Us Weekly.
Danner allegedly "begged Gwyneth not to end it, that he's a good man," adding "she loves Chris". It seems, if the reports are indeed true, Paltrow ignored her mother's advice as she and Martin announced their split on Tuesday (25th March). The source claims "Gwyneth had to do what she felt was best".
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin's was the split nobody saw coming this week, as Kate Bush's tour sells out and Joan Rivers stuck the knife into Lena Dunham.
Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin Split: Actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin announced this week that they were splitting up. Well, instead they described their split as a "conscious uncoupling," a phrase that drew scorn and mockery from the internet. The pair had reportedly been testing their separation for a year and finally decided to go public. In an entry on the Iron Man star's website, the couple explained that being parents to their two children was the priority for them right now.
L'Wren Scott's Will: The last will and testament of the late fashion designer L'Wren Scott has been made public. The former model was found hanged in her Manhattan apartment on Monday 17th March whilst her boyfriend, Mick Jagger, was on tour with the Rolling Stones. Jagger is the only named beneficiary in L'Wren's will, with her adoptive siblings explicitly denied any of her $9 million estate. Scott's sister, Jan Shane, has lashed out at the Jagger's for turning the designer's death into a "media circus" - read about what else she had to say.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have "consciously uncoupled", but what now for their careers?
Since the news of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s split, the couple has been all that the internet can talk about. We’re guilty of this ourselves, we were shocked and saddened to hear of the pair’s decision to “consciously uncouple” (although, we have to admit, the term they used did provoke a brief eyebrow raise).
Paltrow and Martin have split after 10 years of marriage
They may have decided to go their separate ways, but what are those ways and where are they both headed now? Other than their decision to "co-parent", it seems like the the pair will be headed in totally different directions.

A timeline of the 12 year relationship between Oscar winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have called an amicable end (now infamously termed a “conscious uncoupling”) to their ten year marriage. Sad news for a pair with two young children, but instead of mourning the end of their relationship, we thought that we’d celebrate the years that they did spend together.
It always seemed as though Paltrow and Martin were from totally different worlds
The world was surprised when rumours that young Hollywood starlet, Gwyneth Paltrow, ex-fiancee of Brad Pitt and ex-girlfriend of Ben Affleck, and Coldplay lead vocalist, Chris Martin, then in his mid-twenties, were an item. Gwyneth was an Oscar winning actress, while Chris was the alternative rock star from Devon, who hadn’t lost his virginity until he was 22. The pair hit it off when Paltrow attended a Coldplay gig in 2002, three weeks after the death of her father. They both felt a spark after meeting backstage, and Martin helped Paltrow deal with her grief. He even wrote her a song, a little ditty you may have heard of, called, ‘Fix You’ as well as the heartbreaking ‘Swallowed in the Sea’, which contains the lyrics ‘And I could write a song a hundred miles long, Well that’s where I belong and you belong with me.’

Gwyneth Paltrow looking to move back to England after Vanity Fair fails to publish article on her alleged affair.
The Thanks For Sharing star flew into a panic back in May this year (2013) and emailed various friends saying, 'Vanity Fair is threatening to put me on the cover of their magazine. If you are asked for quotes or comments, please decline. Also, I recommend you all never do this magazine again' according to the New York Times. The reason why? Well, several sources told Page Six that VF were seriously looking into Gwyn's relationship with real estate billionaire Jeff Soffer, a friend of hers who the publication think is closer to her than first appears.
Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter insisted that they would be running a story on her alleged adultery this December explaining to the Times: "We wouldn't be doing our job if there wasn't a little bit of tension between Vanity Fair and its subjects. In any given week, I can expect to hear from a disgruntled subject in Hollywood, Washington, or on Wall Street. That's the nature of the beast."
Jay-Z and his Magna Carta tour supporters Chris Martin and Timbaland take a liking to an unexpected method of transport on arriving in London.
Forget chauffeur-driven limousines, Jay-Z finds the easiest way to travel to his London gigs is by Tube - and we have to say, we're in agreement.
Like many city-dwellers, the 'Holy Grail' singer doesn't see the point of trying to get round busy London in a car and has instead opted to hit the subway to attend his O2 Arena show on the UK leg of his Magna Carta world tour. He was joined by Chris Martin of Coldplay, Timbaland and a 10-person entourage as he boarded the London Underground, rendering several nearby passengers in complete shock.
This isn't the first time Jay-Z has opted for efficient but unexpected subway travel; in 2012, he made acquaintance with a grandmother named Ellen on his way to a show at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn. The woman appeared not to recognise him as she asked him if he was famous and asked what he did for a living. The name rang a bell for the lucky old dear, though, and their adorable conversation was documented in a film called 'Life+Times' on Jay-Z's culture website.
The rapper wasn't alone, as Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and Timbaland joined him on The Tube to his concert at the O2 Arena.
Jay-Z decided to attend his final concert at the Barclays Arena in Brooklyn in an against-character fashion; by ditching the glitz and glamour that he so often raps about and riding the subway. Prior to a gig at London's O2 Arena this weekend, the rapper went back to his roots again and arrived to the venue via public transport, and even brought a few famous faces along for the ride.
Jay kick started his world tour earlier this year
Chris Martin and Timbaland joined Jay on his train part way through the journey, with producer Timbaland supporting Jay throughout his Magna Carta world tour. Coldplay frontman Martin isn't supporting him during the tour, however the pair are good friends and they also hooked up on stage during the performance. The trio were also accompanied on their journey by an entourage of about 10 people, with bodyguards included.
Jay Z skipped the glamour and took the fast route to his O2 Arena gig.
Multi-millionaire rap, fashion and sports mogul Jay Z has proven he is still a man of the people, by taking the Tube to his latest gig at London’s O2 Arena. But even the most tedious journey can be made fun, if there are friends along and lucky for him, Mr Carter was joined on the way by Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and collaborator Timbaland. Actually, it was probably lucky for the travelers on the tube that day as well, who will now, at the very least, get to brag that they’ve ridden in the same train car as Jay Z.
World-famous performer by night,
And, in the age of instant communication, the first (and sometimes second) hand accounts have already started flooding in, although the accounts do seem to vary. One user mentions Rihanna: “Jay-Z, Rihanna and Timberland all took the London Underground to their concert last night.... Love that.”

Gwyneth Paltrow reveals in an interview about new film 'Thanks For Sharing' exactly how she would deal with the issues of sex addiction and infidelity.
Gwyneth Paltrow has spectacularly opened up about her personal life by revealing how she'd deal with infidelity; simply put, she'd forgive and forget!
The 'Iron Man' actress has always been rather open about her home life; less so than many celebrities, but she still loves to divulge. This time, the star has told Refinery29 that, should the problem of cheating arise in her marriage with Coldplay singer Chris Martin, she'd be sure to work it out in whatever way she could.
"I think that if the idea of being committed to someone is important to you, you begin to value certain parts of your social life over another," she explained. "No couple is the same, and as such, every couple takes on different challenges. I would like to think that I would be forgiving and/or forgiven, but I can't give an honest answer as I haven't really experienced that."

In an exhaustive week of celebrity news, tributes were paid to James Gandolfini, the late actor who played the legendary Tony Soprano on HBO’s long-running series The Sopranos. There was happier news for Kim and Kanye, who named their little girl, and Brad Pitt’s World War Z battled back to pull in millions at the box-office.
Sleep Well, Tony: James Gandolfini, the actor who took dramatic television performances to a new level as Tony Soprano in The Sopranos, died this week aged 51. Gandolfini won three Emmy Awards for the long-running HBO series and will be sadly missed in both the film and television world.

Coldplay live CD/DVD Cover
Albums of Note... Coldplay’s Live 2012 album shows a band far more at ease with themselves than their previous live release, from 2003. The Live 2012 package includes both blu-ray and CD. The footage is punctuated by behind-the-scenes interludes and these excerpts showcase each band member’s enthusiasm for their live shows as well as revealing how the material from Mylo Xyloto evolved over time and culminated with them band playing to a vast stadium audiences across the globe. “Live 2012 includes some nice musical moments... the low-key piano intro to 'Yellow', a guest appearance from Rihanna during 'Princess Of China', and the stripped back intimacy of 'Us Against The World'. All of the other elements of big choruses and sing-along's spanning the entire Coldplay back catalogue are present and correct… and Chris Martin's voice seems to have found a renewed strength to cope with the massive venues the band now fills.”
"I've been writing songs and I'm so fired up about the band's future." Chris said, "I'm fortunate to do what I do and no way do I want to stop. This three-year break idea only came about because I said at a gig in Australia that we might not be back there for three years. That's probably true, but that's just how a world tour works. No chance are we taking a three-year break."
Having been going strong and almost non-stop since 1996 now, what keeps them fired up and making music? Well, according to Martin, it's charity that keeps them motivated and inspired. "If we don't work hard we make less money to give [children's charity] Kids Company. We're very spoiled and that's a constant motivator to keep going. Our work with the charity is ongoing. We just tried to buy a building for them near our studio in London, but got gazumped... It was probably Radiohead that outbid us."

When Mumford & Sons performed at the iTunes Festival, they probably didn't expect some of the U.K's biggest stars to attend, but that's exactly what happened according to The Sun.
Adele, Chris Martin, Simon Pegg and Emma Watson were all in attendance as the folk-pop quartet bashed out tunes from their latest album, Babel. Company indeed! "We've been all around and now we're home, it feels so good," said Frontman Marcus Mumford. "This is our album launch party, celebrate with us." The band have been touring for years now, and experienced some tough times in some of the far corners of the earth, so they'll be glad to be playing in front of home crowds again. A review of their Roundhouse gig in The Telegraph says: "The show's highlights were when the band loosened their grip on the anthemic jugular. A shimmering Timshel was played unplugged, and the band displayed an enviable mastery of the crowd, who fell deathly silent." Their new album, Babel, which the band describes as "an advert for our live shows" has received mixed reviews, to put it lightly. The Guardian gave their follow up to the incredibly popular debut album, Sign No More, 2 stars. But over in America, where the band is making significant inroads, The Huffington Post described it as "a joy".
Instead, the blood and guts can be found in the eyes of the six members of the-band-you've-never-heard-of NC-17, a sort-of harmonized post-grunge combo with a violinist and a gravelly-voiced lead singer. Having moved from rural Michigan to Los Angeles based on the promise of a record deal, brothers Frank and Vince Rogala and Robin Canada (then known as Exude) thought everything was going their way. Said record deal evaporated, though, and the band found itself more unknown than ever. Ten years later, they're still at it, now with five members (including the violin), a new name, and nothing to show for a decade of work.
