Coldplay joins James Corden for "Carpool Karaoke"

James Corden has picked up yet another famous face to ride along in his car, which may be the most musical vehicle on TV.

In a segment for the "Late Late Show," Corden spots Chris Martin standing on the side of the road, donning a backpack and holding a sign that says, "Super Bowl San Francisco."

The Coldplay lead singer asks the "Late Late Show" host to give him a ride to the city, where he will perform at Super Bowl 50's halftime show and naturally, he joins Corden in a pretty legendary edition of "Carpool Karaoke," though Corden seems less than pleased about the idea of driving to San Francisco.

In the clip, the two start "Carpool Karaoke" by singing "Adventure of a Lifetime," since clearly, that's the theme of the car ride. Later, after plenty of Coldplay classics, the buds launch into "Heroes" by David Bowie, paying tribute to the late singer.

Corden doesn't go too easy on the Coldplay frontman during their informal interview, grilling him on American football. Martin definitely didn't learn anything about the sport from his American exes, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lawrence.

"You have nine teams and two balls and wait, no, so the pitcher has to tee off and then it lands wherever it might land and then it gets in the basket and nine points to the other team and at the end of it, they hand out bowls and it's really super," Martin responds.

Though both celebs are Brits, they do have a penchant for American junk food. During their road trip, Corden and Martin stop at a gas station to load up on Rolos and Snickers.
