Leading British band Coldplay performed in India this Saturday as part of the Global Citizen India initiative 2016, an annual music festival that began in 2012.

The band’s frontman Chris Martin, who is also the creative director of the festival, performed an hour-long gig with his group during the event in Mumbai.

Here are 11 memorable moments from the event:

Did Coldplay's Chris Martin insult the Indian flag?

1. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi called in live to have a chat with the crowd since he could not make it to the concert.



2. Freida Pinto attempted to have a discussion on girls education but she was booed by the crowd because everyone was impatient for Coldplay.

7. However, his particular way of handling the national flag did not go down well with Indian politicians.

8.  But nobody could doubt Chris Martin's goodwill after he sang in Hindi - like this Channa Mereya by Arijit Singh.

9. Martin also surprised fans with another attempt to sing in Hindi and performed Vande Mataram and Maa Tujhe Salam with AR Rahman.
