"Happy New Year, everyone. Here's the video for Birds," the band tweeted.

The video, directed by Marcus Haney, is grainy and psychedelic in its concept. It was filmed at the massive Salvation Mountain art monument outside of Slab City, California, in the Southern California desert in the US.

The video shows the band visiting the site and features visual effects like kaleidoscope imagery.

Birds is the second music video made out of Coldplay's new album A Head Full of Dreams which was released in December last year.
