Coldplay were said to be honoured to be chosen to play at Steve Jobs's memorial service that took place on Wednesday.
The rock band that have had hits with 'Yellow' and 'Fix You,' jumped at the chance to perform at the memorial service for Apple co-finder Steve Jobs, as they said "his inventions did much to help up-and-coming musicians."
Steve Jobs, the brains behind iTunes and the iPod, passed away earlier this month, after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Coldplay were invited to play tribute to the inventor during the company's in-house memorial in Cupertino, California on Wednesday. Drummer, Will Champion said, ""He (Jobs) was a pioneer and someone that helped us an awful lot. As we were coming up, he was always very supportive."
The rocker was also moved by the outpouring of love at the memorial: "It was all the Apple employees and it was just a really heartfelt, beautiful ceremony." Frontman Chris Martin added: "It was nice to see a big businessman, who people seemed to really love. He was a good guy.
We certainly think they are the perfect band to perform a moving tribute to honour Steve Jobs.
