Coldplay fans raced to Dartford Library after it was revealed that a handwritten note, penned by Chris Martin, was hidden in one of the books there.
The British rock band have hidden hand written lyrics of the nine songs from their new album ‘Ghost Stories’ in libraries all over the world.
A statement on the band’s website read: “The band have decided to reveal the lyrics for all nine songs from the upcoming Ghost Stories album by hiding Chris’s handwritten lyric sheets in libraries worldwide. The lyrics will be hidden in ghost story books in libraries in nine countries, located across the planet.”
The band have been using their twitter account to provide clues as to where the lyrics will be.
“Fans will be encouraged to help solve the clues and visit their local library to see if they can find an envelope containing one of the unique lyrics sheets,” the statement explained.
It was clue number 5 which led one lucky fan to Dartford Library, Central Park, Market Street, where they found the lyrics in a copy of Wuthering Heights. The identity of the fan is not known as they did not want to make it public.
The hunt continues with one of the hidden envelopes containing a “Golden Ticket” which will give the finder and one guest a free trip to London to see Coldplay perform at the Royal Albert Hall on July 1.
