22 February 2012, 21:16

The 'Paradise' band tell Capital FM that they still enjoy the feeling of victory backstage at the BRITs.

Coldplay confessed that they were feeling pleased for their BRIT Awards 2012 success after picking up the Best British Group last night (21st February).

The 'Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall' band caught up with Capital FM after they picked up the award and opened the event with an explosive performance of their new single 'Charlie Brown'.

Chris Martin said: "We don't take winning these things for granted anymore - it's lovely."

Capital asked how the band tackle something like performing at the BRITs and how it felt to open the show.

The front man confessed: "It's a bit nerve wracking but if you can get past that first 30 seconds then you kind of relax into it.

"Also, I think the audience need to see you let lose before they do. It takes a minute but then it gets really fun."

Chris Martin also joined Noel Gallagher on the piano during his performance of  'AKA….What A Life' and his band's opening set was heavy on the pyrotechnics.

Johnny Buckland quipped: "We tried to blow up the room."
