The band have today released their new Music Of The Spheres World Tour App ahead of the first show in Costa Rica on March 18. The free app – made in partnership with SAP – is available to download now for iOS and Android devices, via coldplay.com/app.
The app forms a key part of the band’s pledge to make the tour as sustainable and low-carbon as possible since – according to studies* – fan travel accounts for the largest part of tour-related emissions. The app allows fans to plan low-carbon travel to and from shows, with those who choose green journeys rewarded with a merch discount code.
The app will also measure total fan-travel carbon emissions so that the band can drawdown these impacts via high quality nature-based solutions such as reforestation and soil regeneration.
Alongside the fan-travel calculator, the app also offers Coldplay-themed games and AR experiences, exclusive behind-the-scenes content, photos and videos from every show, plus Coldplay news updates and tour info.
The band will also be streaming the full concert audio of an upcoming date exclusively via the app in a presentation powered by SAP (full details to be announced soon).
