WATCH: Chris Martin's Post-Split Music Video


Following news of Chris Martin's separation from Gwyneth Paltrow, Coldplay has released a new music video full of tricks.

The black-and-white video is for their new song Magic and looks like an old-fashioned magic show complete with knife throwing and cutting a woman in half. Martin seems to be in a love triangle with himself, which inevitably brings Christopher Nolan's The Prestige to mind. His co-star is Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon actress Ziyi Zhang.
