The documentary that will chronicle the Chris Martin-led rock band's rise to stardom is set to premiere in more than 2,000 cinemas around the world for a one-off screening on November 14.

AceShowbiz - Coldplay are heading to the big screen for a special screening of their new career-spanning documentary.

"A Head Full of Dreams" was put together with previously unseen footage from the past 20 years, chronicling the British rockers' rise to superstardom as frontman Chris Martin and his bandmates reflect on their groundbreaking careers.

The clips were all shot by Mat Whitecross, the same director behind 2016's critically-acclaimed Oasis documentary "Oasis: Supersonic", who first met the aspiring musicians when they were just college students in London, before they even formed Coldplay.

He began filming the four pals during their early days as a band, and has continued to document their personal and professional growth on camera, giving fans the ultimate behind-the-scenes experience.

Devotees will already be familiar with Whitecross' work, as he also directed a number of Coldplay's music videos, including "A Sky Full of Stars", "Adventure of a Lifetime", and "Paradise".

He also joined the stars on the road for their global "A Head Full of Dreams Tour", which began in Argentina in March, 2016 and concluded at the same venue in November, 2017. The 114-show trek has since been declared the third biggest tour in concert history, grossing more than $523 million (£397.6 million), and playing to over five million fans.

The documentary is set for release on the Amazon streaming service on November 16, but it will premiere in more than 2,000 cinemas around the world for a one-off screening on November 14.

Coldplay will also celebrate the film's release by sharing a trio of live tracks performed during the tour, including their special collaboration with Barry Gibb on the Bee Gees classic "Stayin' Alive", which was staged at Britain's Glastonbury festival in 2016.
