"This Goes Against Coldplay's Principles!" Littered Raincoats Disappoint M'sians in Standing Zone

Coldplay's concert in Malaysia left an indelible mark, not only for the musical enchantment but also for an unfortunate aftermath that spoke volumes about environmental negligence.

The post-concert scene revealed a disheartening sight: heaps of discarded raincoats strewn across the standing zone, showcasing a blatant disregard for the environment. This wasteful behavior starkly contradicts Coldplay's renowned dedication to sustainability, shedding light on a disconcerting aspect of some attendees' mindset.

Throughout the night, persistent rain in the standing zone prompted concert-goers to don raincoats. While the area was initially marred by the littering of raincoats, there was a subsequent cleanup, potentially by crew members, as reported by a local portal. 

However, the issue lies in the initial act of littering itself.

Even before the concert commenced, a less glamorous tableau unfolded outside the venue. A brief yet impactful 11-second video circulated on social media, capturing a sea of discarded garbage—food wrappers, drink bottles, and more—blanketing the grounds. 

This unfortunate display not only tarnished the post-concert landscape but also contradicted Coldplay's ethos, as the band has consistently championed environmental responsibility. It serves as a poignant reminder that every individual's actions, no matter how small, play a role in preserving the planet—a cause that Coldplay takes very seriously.

As we revel in the inspiration drawn from Coldplay's music, let's also be inspired by their commitment to environmental causes and their deeply held beliefs.
