1. Coldplay decided to take things way back for for their new, old-timey video. It looks like a silent film, and tells the story of a love triangle.
2. Chris Martin plays two, very different roles: a young magician’s assistant named Christophe and his “moustachioed” boss, Claude.

6. What’s poor Christophe to do? An idea comes to him…
7. … and he learns to LEVITATE.
He looks so pleased with himself!
