Coldplay might be more used to playing stadiums than office buildings but the band are the latest act to record a concert for NPR's Tiny Desk series. Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland of the band were joined by a host of backing singers (who Martin joked have "Photoshopped our songs to be much better than they actually are") for the live session, which you can view above. A highlight is their take on Prince's "1999," plus Coldplay fan favorite "Viva La Vida." The 20-minute set was rounded out by "Cry Cry Cry," "Broken" and "Champion of the World," all of which appeared on last year's Everyday Life
