Coldplay: The band, onstage and off
Chris Martin at iHeartRadio 2011.

Coldplay brought the black light and graffiti explosion otherwise known as their "Mylo Xyloto" stage set to "Saturday Night Live" this weekend (Nov. 12). The U.K. band performed recent singles "Paradise" and "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall," while Chris Martin got cozy in a "Garth & Kat" sketch with Fred Armisen and Kristen Wiig (warning: there were matching festive vests involved). Watch below.

Only adding to their sensitive-dude personas, Coldplay also got a little teary-eyed during SNL's notable nod to Adele's "Someone Like You." The band's appearance doesn't come until the very end, but just trust us, sitting through this sketch will be the best decision you've made all day.
