Coldplay Explore Martial Arts in 'Princess of China'
Chris Martin is a ninja

On their new video for "Princess of China," Coldplay show off some martial arts skills with featured guest Rihanna. Frontman Chris Martin and Rihanna are lovers with a complicated story, resolving their issues by alternately kneeling together on the ground and swordfighting. Chris Martin sports ninja garb and a katana while Rihanna goes from Vishnu to white-robed assassin. With a synth-heavy pop sound, "Princess of China" is a departure from Coldplay's usual atmospheric instrumentation.

"Princess of China" is on Coldplay's 2011 album, Mylo Xyloto.
