You must have heard about this, and yes, Coldplay is coming to Manila!
News about Coldplay—composed of Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman, and Will Champion—performing in Manila spread like wildfire in social media on Wednesday night, April 13.
A post of Globe Telecom Head of Music Content Kat Ramnani hinting about the band's A Head Full of Dreams concert in the Philippines went viral on Facebook.
However, the FB post has been taken down since Coldplay and the organizers have not yet made an official announcement about the band's Asian tour.

A source confirmed the news to CNN Philippines and said that the British band are "definitely coming to Manila at the latter part of the year."
Two independent PEP sources also confirmed that the concert will be handled by SM Mall of Asia Arena and will held on the last week of November.
Rumors about the band coming to Manila has been circulating since last year after Coldplay announced on The Late Late Show with James Corden last December 8.
If ever, this concert would be the band's first performance in the Philippines.
Frontman Chris Martin told BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe that their 7th studio album A Head Full of Dreams which was released last December 2015 may be the band's "final" album.
"It's our seventh thing, and the way we look at it, it's like the last Harry Potter book or something like that," Chris said.
He continued, "Not to say that there might not be another thing one day, but this is the completion of something. I have to think of it as the final thing we're doing. Otherwise we wouldn't put everything into it."
While we wait for the official announcement, let's feast our eyes and ears on these eargasmic snippets of Coldplay's performances from their Latin American tour:
