Coldplay's Chris Martin Plays New Song

Apple unveiled the new iPod lineup, Apple TV and iTunes 10  during a special event in San Francisco on Wednesday, and then surprised attendees with Coldplay’s Chris Martin, who debuted a new tune of his own called “Wedding Bells.”

Wearing a Flaming Lips T-shirt, Martin sat at the piano and introduced his new song with a bit of Apple humor.

“This is a new song that we’ve been working on called ‘Coldplay 2.6′,” he said. “It has a lot of features. It features seven different kinds of chord, including a new one that even our closest rivals have no idea about, which [Apple's legendary designer of the iMac, iPod, etc.] Jonathan Ive designed. It’s the chord of I-minor.

“It might not even ever come out so this could be the only time it ever appears. It’s the beginning of a story kind of thing that starts sadly, but that’s the way these things … It could go terribly wrong, but f—k it.”

Martin also performed “Yellow” and “Viva la Vida.”
