COLDPLAY'S CHRIS MARTIN had 'Happy Birthday' sung to him - by 2000 fans of his rock pals Embrace.

Martin, who was 28 on 1 March (05), received a phone call from Embrace frontman DANNY MCNAMARA, who was keen to wish his friend a happy birthday while the band performed live on stage.

A source says, "Danny just pulled his mobile phone out and announced he was going to phone Chris.

"He got him on the other end, had a bit of a chat, then held the phone up to the audience and everyone sang 'Happy Birthday.'"
