As previously reported, Coldplay is also getting an NBC special. Following Chris Martin's well-received three-episode stint on "The Voice," the British foursome will tout "Ghost Stories" in a one-hour broadcast slated to air on May 18 at 7 p.m. ET/PT, one day before the album officially drops.

"Coldplay: Ghost Stories" will feature new songs from the band's latest album, including current single "Magic." Other tracks included in the setlist: "Viva La Vida," "Paradise" and "Clocks."
In between performances on “SNL,’ Coldplay frontman Chris Martin joined host Andrew Garfield and the actor’s “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” co-star (and real-life girlfriend) Emma Stone for a skit. During the sketch, The two repeatedly failed to make a kissing scene believable, so Martin had to step in for Stone to plant one on Garfield.
Also during the show, Garfield unveiled a trailer for “The Beygency” -- a thriller about a man whose life is made a living hell after he admits to not being crazy about one of Beyonce's songs.

Later, “Celebrity Family Feud” saw Garfield do a spot-on Justin Timberlake, who made Steve Harvey (Kenan) feel uncomfortable by saying sexily: "I'm not here as a Grammy winner or as a movie star. Because tonight I want everybody to know – it's just Justin." The skit also featured impressions of Bruno Mars, Skrillex, Drake and Adele. Check it out below.
