I'm a huge Coldplay fan. There I said it. I've seen them in concert about a half dozen times on different album cycles and each time they bring a different vibe to the table. I'm interested to see how Chris Martin's separation from Gwyneth will affect the band this time around. Yesterday over at Coldplay.com, an exciting announcement....and after watching the trailer I'll be setting the DVR for this one.

From Coldplay.com: Good evening. Next month, TV networks around the world will screen Coldplay : Ghost Stories, a ground-breaking prime-time special based on the band's forthcoming album. You can watch the trailer above.

Filmed by Grammy-nominated director Paul Dugdale (Adele, Rolling Stones), Coldplay: Ghost Stories was recorded in a custom-built amphitheatre in front of an audience of 800 fans. The show blends a unique in-the-round performance from the band with cinematic vignettes and immersive 360-degree projections.
