Watch Coldplay's Space-Themed SNL Performances of 'Astronaut' and 'Human Heart'
The February 4 episode marked Coldplay's seventh appearance as an SNL musical guest.
Coldplay is an SNL frequent flier, with their recent appearance marking the seventh time the band has performed on the show. First performing in 2001, Coldplay's sound has evolved tremendously throughout their impressive tenure, and they always pull out all the tricks on SNL. The February 4 episode was no exception, with Coldplay embracing a psychedelic vibe for their performances of songs "The Astronaut" and "Human Heart."
Whether you're a fan of Coldplay's earlier classics or their new work, their 2023 SNL set has something for everyone. Watch Coldplay's 2023 SNL performances, below.
Coldplay kicked off the night by performing an English version of their single "The Astronaut,” a track co-written by Coldplay and Jin of BTS. Coldplay transformed the stage to a starry night, as Chris Martin sang angelic melodies before the screen projected a colorful light show. Even better, an alien interpreter jumped on stage to join the intergalactic band to sign the lyrics.
"Human Heart/Fix You"
In one of the most heartfelt moments of the night, Coldplay's Chris Martin sang alongside a choir for an a cappella version of "Human Heart." The track is from Coldplay's Grammy-nominated album Music of the Spheres, and stripping it from its instrumentals was an intimate and effective twist.
However, the most exciting moment was undeniably when the music came back, and Coldplay kicked off a medley of "Human Heart" and their 2005 hit "Fix You."
