1. 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.”
2. 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.
3. An audience member (who asked to remain anonymous) sent BuzzFeed India videos of Martin’s impromptu performance. Here’s “Viva La Vida”:
4. Here’s a tearjerkingly perfect “Fix You”:
5. And here’s a snippet of “Paradise”:
6. As if this isn’t insane enough, comedian Tanmay Bhat and musician Vishal Dadlani later tweeted more photos.
8. Let’s just zoom into one of those photos, shall we? YES THAT’S FREIDA PINTO, WHAT THE HECK.
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.
