Chris Martin has perhaps the most beautiful speaking and singing voice I've ever heard. Yes, of course he has the English accent we Americans so enjoy, but there's just a genuine and sly quality in what he says and how he says it. His singing range is wide, from falsetto to slightly deep (yes, that wasn't musically precise, I'm just not going to go through every song and measure the scale position of the note). His singing style is varied. In songs like "42" and "God Put A Smile On Your Face" his phrasing is quick and there is a rock quality. In songs like "Amsterdam" "The Scientist," "X&Y," and "Low" there is an ethereal quality. In songs like "Yellow" and "Viva La Vida," his voice is sunny, positive, and bright. There are of course rhythm guitar-heavy songs that showcase his lower notes, like "Swallowed By the Sea." You'd be pressed to find a song in which he doesn't employ falsetto.

This is the Letterman version of "In My Place" (from Coldplay's Vevo page). The concert version, which you can find on Youtube, really showcases Chris Martin's energy, spirit, and passion for the music. This was the opening number in the show I saw in NYC on New Year's Eve 2012-2013 and the effects of his jumps and the confetti were amazing. Check it out.
