As you'll undoubtedly see above, rapid-fire explosions erupted in time with Coldplay's new song "Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall," showering the front rows with a rain of gunpowder and sparks. The band played three other new tracks as well: "MX/Hurts Like Heaven," "Major Minus" and "Us Against the World," which Martin joked was inspired by the idea of a "potential love affair between Bill O'Reilly and Sarah Palin". Judging by the audience reaction, the band's new album will have no trouble finding a home among millions.
