Coldplay Bring Us Behind-The-Scenes Of Their 'Magic' Video (EXCLUSIVE)

Coldplay recently ended their musical disappearing act with the release of their "Magic" music video. Directed by Grammy-winner Jonas Åkerlund, it features a 1920s circus magician played by "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" star Ziyi Zhang with Chris Martin playing dual roles as her lovely assistant and her abusive husband.

But while most magicians might be loathe to show you how their tricks work, Coldplay has gone the other direction with this making-of video that takes fans behind-the-scenes of the video shoot complete with bloopers and the secrets of levitation.
