Watch: Coldplay unveil interactive video for ‘Ink’

Coldplay unveil interactive video for ‘Ink’

Tall, Chris Martin-like figure becomes an astronomer in this new video.

Coldplay have unveiled a standalone, interactive video for their ‘Ink’ single.

Available to view on the official Coldplay site, the clip sees a Chris Martin lookalike trail round empty terrain in animated form. Starry skies are his game, and in this thrill-a-second journey, you can pick which kind of astronomical patterns he ends up viewing - it really is a rollercoaster ride.

It begins with a selection of three items, which the Chris Martin-alike can choose from. He then traipses into the forest, picks one of two paths, and generally has a great time of things.

‘Ink’ falls as part of Coldplay’s new ‘Ghost Stories Live 2014’ DVD, which is out now, following on from a 2014 album of the same name.
