Published: 2006-05-29
If you're ever curious about how much it might cost to have Colplay frontman Chris Martin play a song in your living room well, it's about £5,000 or about $10,270 Canadian.

Martin's services were auctioned off at Canonbury Primary School in London. According to Yahoo! Music, Coldplay's business manager Paul Makin is a parent at the school and asked if Martin would help him to try to raise money for the school to go towards a new resource and IT centre.

According to Yahoo!, "The undisclosed parent stumped up £5,000 for the concert after bidding began at £400, quickly rising into the thousands."

In return Martin will play one song in the winner's living room for up to 10 people.
