Chris Martin is a well-known and prominent performer. But, during a concert he made a blunder, by pulling the wrong woman up on stage ahead of a fan’s proposal.

The Coldplay’s lead vocalist stopped ‘A Sky Full Of Stars’ halfway, to bring a nervous fan up on stage in Melbourne gig at Etihad Stadium on December 9th. Setting the scene for the proposal, Martin guided the woman up on stage he believed to be the man’s bride-to-be, only for him to quickly discover he'd picked out the wrong woman.

Martin then quickly apologised and ushered the confused woman back off stage, who then showed his good humour by asking the crowd, if there are ‘any takers’ in here who want to marry this lovely lady.

After correcting his mistake and locating the right woman, Martin passed on the microphone to the husband-to-be, where the man, down on his one knee, proposed her and said, "Thank you for giving me a chance. So in the midst of Coldplay, my new best friend Chris, and all the people here in Melbourne I just want to say I love you. Will you marry me?"

To the resounding crowd of the packed out arena and a smiling Chris standing right beside her, she said yes.

This wasn't the first time that a couple have got engaged in the middle of a Coldplay gig, the same scenario happened in London’s Wembley Stadium in June, this year, when a British man popped out the question while the band played ‘Fix You’.

Here's the video of the proposal -
