Video: Apple's Dad–Chris Martin of Coldplay–Jams for Apple's CEO

While I am sure there is a better video of this on the Apple site, here are the three songs that Coldplay frontman Chris Martin did at the Apple music event, held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco yesterday.

If you look carefully to the left, looking at the stage, you can see Apple (AAPL) CEO Steve Jobs grinning away at the performances of “Yellow,” “Viva La Vida” and a new one, which I think Martin said was called “Wedding Bells.”

In one of many very funny remarks he made onstage, Martin–who is married to actress Gwyneth Paltrow and with whom he has two children, Apple (named after the fruit, not the company) and Moses–thanked Jobs and Apple iTunes for helping make some of his songs into hits, noting, “It proves you can market anything.”
