The band plays the new album in its entirety for the first time to 800 lucky fans on a movie soundstage at Sony Studios.
Coldplay played all the tracks off their upcoming album, "Ghost Stories", for the first time at a recent show in Los Angeles. According to Rolling Stone, the British rock band sang the new songs for about 800 lucky fans at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City.
The show was actually being recorded for an upcoming DVD release. Chris Martin and Co. kicked off the show with their hits "Paradise" and "Clocks". They then performed their new album in full and in order, beginning with "Always in My Head".
The second song played was "Magic", which was released as the first official single earlier this month. Later in the gig, they sang other tracks including "Ink", "True Love", "Midnight", "Another's Arm" and "A Sky Full of Stars".
Two new tracks called "Always in My Head" and "Another's Arm" were first debuted during Coldplay's set at iTunes Festival at South by Southwest a couple weeks ago.
The rockers then closed out the performance with hits "Viva La Vida", "Fix You" and another rendition of "Paradise".
"Ghost Stories" will be Coldplay's first album since 2011's "Mylo Xyloto". The group's sixth studio effort is scheduled to hit the stores on May 12.
