Chris Martin performed a virtual concert targeting fans who are confined to their homes in line with the COVID-19 pandemic's social distancing protocols.

It was the first performance in a music series jointly organized by Global Citizen and the World Health Organization.

Titled "Solidarity Sessions: Together, At Home," the series will feature live performances from various musical artists via Instagram.

The Coldplay frontman interacted with his fans on social media Monday afternoon, performing some of the band's greatest hits live.

Martin started off the session by greeting the tens of thousands of fans who tuned in and addressing the reason behind the virtual concert.

"The right thing to be doing is staying home ... and not buying too much toilet paper," said Martin, who is also a Global Citizen Festival curator.
