Coldplay have created a special app to accompany their Music Of The Spheres world tour to help their fans plan low-carbon and sustainable travel routes to and from their shows.

Available to download here for free for iOS and Android devices, the app “forms a key part of the band’s pledge to make their tour as sustainable and low-carbon as possible, since fan travel accounts for the largest part of tour-related emissions”, a statement reads.

Coldplay’s app will allow “fans to plan low-carbon travel to and from shows, with those who choose green journeys [being] rewarded with a merch discount code” at the gigs.

The app will “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”.

So far, the average fan carbon footprint is down around 50 per cent from 2016/17’s A Head Full Of Dreams Tour.

“We’re really proud of the ‘Music Of The Spheres World Tour App’,” Coldplay said in a statement. “For the past few years, we’ve been figuring out how to put sustainability at the heart of our tour. The app is a big part of that. You can use the app to figure out the cleanest and greenest ways to get to and from the concert.
