Chris Martin may be fronting Coldplay this weekend for the Super Bowl 50 halftime show, but he still needs a lift just like any normal person. And, who is better at giving superstar musician's ride than The Late Late Show's James Corden? For the latest installment of his "Carpool Karaoke" series, Corden took Martin to San Francisco on his longest trip yet.

En route, Corden and Martin ran through a series of Coldplay's newest and biggest hits, including "Adventure of a Lifetime," "Paradise," "Yellow," "Hymn for the Weekend" and "Viva La Vida."

Of course, no "Carpool Karaoke" would be complete without a few hijinks. Martin and Corden, on their lengthy road trip, made a stop at a gas station and stocked up on snacks, including Snickers bars and "American Rolos," of which Martin seems to be a huge fan. The duo also bought some San Francisco 49ers hats, in honor of the Super Bowl at Levi's Stadium.

Though the Snickers and Rolos helped to boost Corden and Martin's sugar levels, they weren't so much a fan of some roadside lemonade, which was pure sugar and seemed to catapult Martin to new levels of hyperactivity. But, Martin left the kids with a hefty tip, and let's hope it helps their "me" fund plenty.

When Martin wasn't busy performing his own music, he paid a little tribute to the late, great David Bowie by performing his signature hit "Heroes" on a toy keyboard. Martin also used the tiny piano to write a new song about American football and the Super Bowl, which he doesn't seem to fully understand the rules of.

Martin is set to take the stage at Super Bowl 50 with Coldplay on Sunday, Feb. 7, alongside Beyoncé and Bruno Mars.
