After enthralling the audience here with his performance, Coldplay’s frontman Chris Martin says he would love to come back to India soon. The Global Citizen Festival India 2016 came to an end with the show by British rock band, which was a visual spectacle with fireworks, balloons and confetti at the MMRDA grounds.
The finale started post 8.30 pm and went on for over an hour. The band performed on their popular songs such as Yellow, The Scientist, Paradise, Fix You, Viva La Vida among others.
Towards the end of his spectacular performance, Martin said, “I thank the Prime Minister for letting us do the concert here. Thank you all for giving us the best time here. We look forward to be in India soon as it’s the best place.”
He surprised everyone when he sang Maa tujhe salaam... Vande Maataram, and later even waved the national flag.
He also sang his own version of song -- Channa Mereya... from Karan Johar’s film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
