The clip for 'Hurts Like Heaven' does not feature the band and instead shows comic book-style cartoon characters in a dystopian setting.
"The next single from Mylo Xyloto will be 'Hurts Like Heaven'," they tweeted earlier today (October 5).
"Full video coming on Monday (October 8) - watch the trailer now..."
The futuristic animation contains flashes of neon, which have become the band's trademark over the course of Mylo Xyloto's promotions.
The story also appears to feature male and female protagonists who, according to briefly displayed captions, fight a villain named 'Major Minus' and his army of 'silencers'.
'Hurts Like Heaven' is the fifth official single to be released from Coldplay's Mylo Xyloto LP. The band's entire back catalogue of albums recently re-entered the UK Top 100 after they performed at the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
