Coldplay has a potential Christmas classic on their hands. Today the English rock band debuted their video for “Christmas Lights.” In true Coldplay fashion, it begins as a sullen ballad about a couple breaking up but then swirls into rousingly anthemic cut. In the video the foursome plays on a small stage as if starring in a play with no audience. The show closes with an array of fireworks, signaling all lost loves to return home. It’s a great spin on the Christmas music genre–stocked with jingling bells, lyrics about Santa, and heroic tales of a red-nosed reindeer.

Check out the video after the jump and let us know what you think of Coldplay’s yuletide plea.
