    18 People Whose Faith In Life Was Shattered By Chris Martin's Secret Delhi Gig

    Nobody said missing a secret gig would be easy. No one ever said it would be this hard.

    In case you missed it, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin randomly decided to play a short surprise gig at a New Delhi bar last night.

    Yup, comedians All India Bakchod were there. So was Slumdog Millionaire actress Freida Pinto. And musicians Vishal Dadlani and Raghu Dixit. Basically, for anyone who was grabbing a quick Wednesday night drink at Hauz Khas Village's Summer House Café, last night quickly escalated to the best night of their lives. Watch videos of the insanity here.

    And after hours of rumours and speculation, Dadlani clarified why Martin is in India to begin with.

    FYI, Chris Martin & @BecauseImFreida are here w/ @Hughcevans, to support the Global Poverty Project. Go to http://t.co/DpidH5KFhk for more.

    But that aside, for everyone who wasn't there, the knowledge that they missed such an epic gathering has basically ruined their lives. Here's to those heroes.

    1. There have been tears.

    Divya Galagali

    2. Lots and lots of tears.

    Adiba Khan

    3. Full-on BUCKETS OF TEARS.

    everyone who wasn't at that god damn Delhi bar last night

    4. *collects tears, solves water crisis*

    GUYS. IM GOING AROUND DELHI TOMORROW. YUP ANYWHERE EVERYWHERE. JUST WANT TO FIND CHRIS MARTIN AND CRY

    5. "FOMO" has been redefined.

    6. Coldplay lyrics – which have gotten us all through tough times – were of no use.

    When you hear Chris Martin is in Delhi "Every teardrop is a waterfall"

    7. A lot of people have lost all will to live.

    8. This guy is making a reasonable plea to have a national day of mourning.

    Today should have been a public holiday to cry in corner and recover from what happened last night. #fuck #ChrisMartin #Delhi

    9. Murders are being plotted.

    I'll feel better if I killed everyone who watched Chris Martin's impromptu gig at Summer House last night. Maybe not. But it's worth trying.

    10. The all-caps stage of grief has begun.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CHRIS MARTIN YOU SNEAKY BASTARD HOW COULD YOU HAVE DONE THIS NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    11. SOMEONE TAKE ALL-CAPS AWAY FROM THESE DISTRAUGHT SOULS.

    CHRIS MARTIN IS IN DELHI OH, MY GOD. I'M CRYING. I HOPE THIS IS A SIGN THAT @coldplay IS COMING TO INDIA. OH GOD PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.

    12. EVERYONE JUST BREATHE PLEASE.

    I HATE EVERYONE WHO GOT TO SEE CHRIS MARTIN LIVE. I HATE DELHI. GAAAH.

    13. *gently pries keyboard out of Suhani's shaking hands*

    CHRIS MARTIN WAS IN DELHI AND PERFORMED AT A RANDOM BAR AND NOBODY KNEW OR INFORMED. OMG STONE AGE. I AM LOSING MY MIND. 😭😭😭

    14. An age-old rivalry seems to finally be settled.

    Bombay: We are so much cooler than Delhi because of this reason that reason blah blah. Delhi: Chris Martin. Bombay: *crie*

    15. I mean... Or not.

    CHRIS MARTIN IS IN INDIA. MORE SPECIFICALLY, DELHI. THE WHOLE WORLD SHOULD BURN. Not you, Chris . You come to Bombay.

    16. There's been some genuine concern about Martin's safety.

    17. Friendships have ended.

    So how many friendships/relationships broke in Delhi because someone who was in that Chris Martin gig didn't inform their friend about it?

    18. And, of course, All India Bakchod has taken this opportunity to rub their cool lives in everyone else's face.

    *aggressively cries to Coldplay*
