Occupation: Musician

Nationality: English

Born: March 2, 1977 (37)

Christopher Anthony John "Chris" Martin is an English singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, and is the lead vocalist, pianist, rhythm guitarist, and one of the founders of the band Coldplay. He has also written songs for acts including Embrace and Jamelia.

Martin has admitted that Coldplay were always influenced by Radiohead, saying: "Sometimes I feel like they cleared a path with a machete, and we came afterward and put up a strip mall... I would still give my left ball to write anything as good as OK Computer."

Martin married Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow on December 5, 2003 in a private ceremony. They announced their amicable separation in March 2014, with Paltrow dubbing the process a "conscious uncoupling". Martin and Paltrow have two children, daughter Apple and son Moses.
