Coldplay marked Mylo Xyloto‘s recent #1 debut on the Billboard chart with a visit to the Saturday Night Live stage, which was splashed with trippy neon graffiti akin to their album cover for the occasion. (The witty Chris Martin, ever pleased to show off his comedy chops, appeared in a Weekend Update sketch as well). Watch the band knock out the ambient “Paradise” and “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” below.

Chris Martin & Co. later returned for a raucous performance of “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall”, which found Mr. Paltrow bounding around the stage before winding up on his back.

Both performances, unsurprisingly, held together a bit better than did “Pilgrims are Always Friendly Unless They’re Pushing Their Limits”, the song made up on the fly by SNL‘s Garth and Kat on the show’s Weekend Update segment, with Martin providing backup vocals.

Who else wishes Chris had found a way to work in the elephant costume? Let us know on Facebook, Twitter or in the comments below.
