The song, the drone footage and those colourful “Coldplay” wristbands lighting up – in sync – with the music are giving us all the feels.


Global (18 August 2022) – Coldplay has just premiered the stunning video for ‘Humankind’ from their number one album Music Of The Spheres.

The song has become a firm live favourite on the record-breaking Music Of The Spheres World Tour and is accompanied by a spectacular live performance video, directed by Stevie Rae Gibbs and James Marcus Haney, based on footage from the band’s four sold-out shows at Mexico City’s Foro Sol stadium earlier this year.

The video features the “best fans in the world” in the stadium wearing the iconic Xylobands, which have become synonymous with Coldplay.

The first use of Xylobands on a large scale was on Coldplay’s 2012 Mylo Xyloto tour. A Xyloband was given to each audience member, and as the concert played, the flashing of the wristbands was synchronized to the music. The inventor of the wristbands, Jason Regler, stated that he had the idea for the product while at a Coldplay concert during the song “Fix You”.

They have since become a staple at every Coldplay concert.

Since forming at university in London, Coldplay has gone on to become one of the planet’s most popular acts, selling more than 100 million copies of their eight Number One albums, which have spawned a string of hits, including Yellow, Clocks, Fix You, Paradise, Viva La Vida, A Sky Full Of Stars, Hymn For The Weekend, Adventure Of A Lifetime, Orphans and, most recently, Higher Power, My Universe and Let Somebody Go.

The band’s ‘Music Of The Spheres’ World Tour kicked off in Costa Rica in March and will be ongoing through to the end of October 2022, with all the dates and venues worldwide available on their website.
