Late Wednesday night, Indian comedian Rohan Joshi Instagrammed a video of Coldplay frontman Chris Martin singing "Viva la Vida," apparently at a bar in New Delhi.

His caption reads: "Ohhhh, that's just Chris Martin from Coldplay, playing a little acoustic set at a bar in Delhi, for fun, because why not? Yes my life is a surreal, ridiculous thing."

It was shortly followed by this picture.

Note: NOBODY HAD ANY IDEA CHRIS MARTIN WAS EVEN IN INDIA, LET ALONE DOING SNEAKY SECRET SURPRISE PERFORMANCES AT RANDOM BARS. HELP.

An audience member (who asked to remain anonymous) sent BuzzFeed India videos of Martin's impromptu performance. Here's "Viva La Vida":

And here's a snippet of "Paradise":

Here's a tiny unedited,raw glimpse of Chris Martin perform in Delhi tonight. Full, edited video out soon. @kibbanoir

As if this isn't insane enough, comedian Tanmay Bhat and musician Vishal Dadlani later tweeted more photos.

Chris Martin, @BecauseImFreida @Raghu_Dixit @AllIndiaBakchod What a night! MENTAL!!!

Our detective work (i.e., stalking two people's Twitter timelines) reveals that Martin and the Slumdog Millionaire star were at the same New Delhi bar tonight as Indian comedy collective All India Bakchod and musicians Dadlani Raghu Dixit.

Dadlani confirmed on Twitter that Martin wasn't doing an official performance – he's just spontaneous and awesome AF:

It wasn't an event. We were at a dinner together, and he just went 'let's go play somewhere'! And, boom! @karshkalemusic

Aaaand it looks like All India Bakchod introduced Chris Martin, who went on to perform for a crowd of unsuspecting Wednesday night party people.

Hahaha, just introduced Chris Martin to come do a small set at summerhouse cafe at hauz khas. What?

I can now officially say I introduced Chris Martin on for a set. Holy. Shit.

Here's the selfie-to-end-all-selfies that they posted on their Facebook page:

Obviously, "Chris Martin" and "Coldplay" have both trended in India since, thanks to a lot of very distraught people who decided to stay in last night.

Chris Martin randomly popped up in Delhi. Everyone I know on my feed was either there or is crying about it. Damn, I'm gonna cry.

Chris Martin coming to our country and playing an acoustic set at a "secret" gig is the best example of universe being unfair!!!!

Chris Martin is trending in India, already. Twitter broke the internet, there.
