Chris Martin kissed up to one of his biggest fans – wife Gwyneth Paltrow during the his band Coldplay's recent Miami concert.
At one point during the June 29 show at the American Airlines Arena, the rocker darted into the crowd, found his wife and planted a sweet smooch on her lips. (Watch video below; the kiss comes about 11 seconds into the video.) And, like a flash, he was gone.
Speaking of flashes, surprised concertgoers who were sitting around Paltrow whipped out their phones to capture the sweet moment.

Following Friday's death of Adam Yauch from cancer at 47, Madonna says the Beastie Boy rapper, who was also known as MCA, was one of a kind, and that the group was "integral to the musical revolution that was happening at the time," reports the Associated Press.
In addition, Madonna expressed sadness to hear of Yauch's death and asked God to bless his family.
The Beastie Boys opened for Madonna on her concert tour in the 1980s.
On Friday night on stage at the Hollywood Bowl, Coldplay played a sentimental tribute to Yauch with a rendition of the Beastie Boys' hit "(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party!)." Frontman Chris Martin sang and played the piano.

It was date night at the Hollywood Bowl during the first of Coldplay's three scheduled shows.
New parents Robert Downey Jr. and wife Susan arrived at the venue in a chauffeured ride. The Avengers star jumped out first, then opened the door for his wife, who was sitting in the front seat. He escorted her into the venue and kept his hand on her back.
Despite the paparazzi attention, the two looked happy and smiled together, holding hands as they were ushered into the venue and given the VIP treatment.
Meanwhile, a pregnant Molly Sims and hubby Scott Stuber took in the show, arriving through a VIP entrance after walking a short distance away from down the hill. The two then disappeared through the artists' entrance,where they remained for the rest of the night.

The Grammys would have been (and were) a showcase for the glory that is Adele, but Whitney Houston's death 24 hours before the event turned the CBS special into a night of mourning and celebration cresting on big, pure emotions. That's what brought in an estimated 39 million viewers, the highest number for the broadcast since 1984 and the second highest ever.
LL Cool J, who handled the hosting duties without any perceptible wrinkling in his uncanny smoothness, opened with a simple prayer for Houston, "a woman who we loved … our fallen sister." This set up a clip of the six-time Grammy winner belting her signature hit "I Will Always Love You."

They may seem an unlikely pair, but Chris Martin and Jay-Z are closer than you may think.
"We're from very different backgrounds. But we love the same stuff everyone else loves," Martin, 34, tells online music magazine Pitchfork.
"I love his music, and he's a super cool guy, and he's genuine. I respect his decisions, and we have the same feelings about trying to be true in your art. It just happens that one of us is a nerd and the other is the coolest multi-entrepreneur on the planet."
Martin – whose latest album with Coldplay, Mylo Xyloto, has been getting rave reviews – may not be giving himself enough credit.

On their fifth album, Mylo Xyloto, Coldplay busts a move, discovering in their second decade that they can groove.
Hey, it wasn’t enough for them to rule arenas, they want to rule dance floors too!
Although they pumped driving rhythms into 2005's under-appreciated X&Y, there's a new swagger to the beats on Mylo Xyloto.
The thumping drums that end "Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall" find Will Champion flexing more muscle, while the funky bass on "Major Minus" might make you think that Flea has replaced Guy Berryman.
