The 'Paradise' singer was shocked to discover the US leader has the band's songs on his iPod.

Coldplay's Chris Martin has confessed that US President Barack Obama told him he has the British band's songs on his iPod.

The 'Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall' star told the Daily Express that he couldn't believe the American leader would be listening to his music.

He confessed: "I met Barack Obama and he said: 'I have your songs on my iPod'. But I thought 'I bet he says that to every pop star he meets'.

"I can't get my head around the notion that the President would have any of my songs on his playlist. It's just too surreal."

Meanwhile, the band recentyl denied that they were regretting naming their latest album 'Mylo Xyloto' after a joke comment Chris made on Good Morning America about people being unable to pronounce the title.
