Coldplay's Chris Martin: Shelter from the Storm (At Home) on Saturday Night Live.

Chris Martin served as a music guest during Saturday Night Live's first "At Home" episode on April 11.

In a live black-and-white recording, the Coldplay frontman performed an acoustic cover of Bob Dylan's "Shelter From the Storm." Martin delivered the classic 1974 track alone surrounded by instruments and with the words "Entrance to Trains" written behind him, likely a reference to SNL's Grand Central-themed stage in New York.

His song choice was especially appropriate given that most people watching the show were indeed social distancing and "sheltering" themselves at home during the coronavirus pandemic.

In addition to performing on SNL, Martin also recently participated in Together, At Home: WHO-Global Citizen Solidarity Sessions, where he answered questions from fans and serenaded viewers with such Coldplay classics as “Yellow,” “Viva La Vida” and “Trouble.”
