Q. I know this is a long shot, but I will give this a shot anyway as this is literally my biggest dream. I am going to be proposing to my girlfriend this next month and I just noticed that Coldplay will be doing a show in UCLA, which is very close to where I live. I would absolutely love to have the chance to propose at the Coldplay show. I know she will say yes as we already have talked about marriage, so there would be no chance of chaos with a resounding no, haha! This may not even be read by some one, but I figured I would give it a shot anyways. Please pass this along to who ever. After we get married, we are going to become missionaries in Europe, this would mean the world to me. Thank you!

If you've got tickets, of course you can propose at the show ;-)
I have a feeling that isn't exactly what you are asking, Alex. I'm afraid I can't go around giving tickets out - as I am sure you appreciate there are thousands of fans who'd like to go too; I may get lynched!
I suspect the days of the band being involved in proposals at shows is very much a thing of the past. It may surprise you but we get asked the same for every single gig (no pun intended).
