While starting the cover at Metlife Stadium in New Jersey, Martin bungled the song, saying, “I know this is probably going to end up on YouTube so I want to do it right, and I want to do it respectfully.” He continued, “this is to everybody who misses someone you know. This is for our whole community of musicians.”
Bennington killed himself at his home outside of LA, he was only 41 years old. The late singer struggled with depression and drug abuse and battled his demons with his vulnerable and candid lyrics.
Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda posted a video of the performance with the caption: "Thank you @coldplay 🙏🏽 It sounded beautiful."
