The 'Paradise' band kick off the BRITs 2012 with a performance of their latest single.

Coldplay kickstarted the BRIT Awards 2012 tonight (21st February) at London's O2 Arena with a show-stopping performance of their hit single 'Charlie Brown'.

'Paradise' singer Chris Martin led the band through the song on stage at the arena while backed with an impressive pyrotechnic display from underneath a giant pink neon disco ball.

The indie band received an impressive reception from the sold-out London arena audience, and performed while being lit up with fluorescent blacklighting.

The 'Mylo Xyloto' band are nominated for two awards at tonight's BRITs 2012 ceremony in the categories for Best British Band and Album of the Year for their fifth record, which was released back in 2011.

Capital will be coming live from the BRIT Awards in London all day on Tuesday (21st February).
