The rocker and his bandmates were warming up in New York's Rockefeller Plaza ahead of their outdoor concert for U.S. breakfast show Today, when Chris learned two devotees had chosen to brave the rain to kick off their special day.
He pulled them to the front of the audience and performed an acoustic version of Til Kingdom Come, much to their delight.
Coldplay went on to belt out renditions of their hits Hymn for the Weekend, Adventure of a Lifetime, Up & Up, A Sky Full of Stars, and Yellow, and despite the wet weather, the Brits were full of energy for the early morning show, and Chris admitted it's always a good time whenever the bandmates get together.
"We haven't seen each other in a week, so we're happy to be back together as friends," he told hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie.
The energy from the crowds also adds to their pleasure: "Any time someone jumps up (during their shows), it makes us feel pretty great," the singer continued. "That's the truth."
And Chris proved to be in a playful mood when he was asked which track the stars were about to play to start their set.
"A Coldplay song!" he quipped, prompting the presenters to laugh.
The New York gig took place just weeks after Coldplay rocked the Super Bowl with superstar pals Beyonce and Bruno Mars, and Chris has nothing but good memories from the special performance.
"The whole thing was just an amazing experience in friendship, and togetherness and all that kind of thing," he gushed.
Following Monday's show, Coldplay took to Twitter to share their joy at staging the free gig in the Big Apple, reposting images of the band's set.
"A good way to start a week..." they captioned one shot of Chris onstage.
