Coldplay singer kicks fan off his property

Coldplay are such nice guys they can’t even be mean to their stalkers.

The Mirror reports Coldplay leader Chris Martin was forced to boot out an intruder who broke into the grounds of the house he shares with Gwyneth Paltrow – to serenade passers-by with a few Coldplay songs.

“I had a guy the other day who climbed over the gate of our house and started singing Coldplay songs to his friends on the street,” said Martin.

The 34-year-old let him murder three or four of the band’s hits before intervening with the words: “Listen, you’re just not doing that right.”

Martin went on to explain, “He politely left. It was bordering on intrusion. Still, it’s nice that people like the songs.”

Coldplay will be featured in concert on the first-ever Austin City Limits New Year’s Eve special. The rare 90-minute episode can be seen on PBS stations across the U.S. on Saturday, December 31 at 11pm ET.

The show will also available in the US online at at the same time.

Coldplay recently announced the first series of dates for their spring/summer tour of North America in support of "Mylo Xyloto"; things kick off April 17 in Edmonton.
