We thought no one could surpass Adele's episode of Carpool Karaoke but we think we've got a new favourite: Chris Martin. 

"Adele is a cool name, just the one word. I think if you say 'the cold', no one's thinking Coldplay yet. So we've got to work harder," Chris said to James while they drove to San Francisco for the Super Bowl. 

On the way, they discuss the rules of American football, and sang to Coldplay's Adventure of a Lifetime, Yellow and Viva La Vida, for which James got the lyrics wrong.

At one point during the trip, Chris actually whipped out a keyboard and performed a rendition of the late David Bowie's Heroes. He also nailed spot on impressions of Bruce Springsteen and Mick Jagger.

"I'm such a fan of his [Chris]. I'm a fan of that band – they mean the world to me," James said of the episode. "It was fun."
