He's a harder guy to pin down because of his footwear, but I believe the 6'1 1/4 listing is correct. On the stage performing The Astronaut with Jin who's a fraction over 5'9, he looks around 4 inches taller than him, give or take.

He definitely not 6'2, looked an inch shorter than Ryan Reynolds.
Leif Elliott said on 26/Feb/23
Rob don't you thinkat least6'2?
Editor Rob
I'm not convinced Chris is quite that tall.
Jolapizza 6'0 5/8 said on 15/Oct/22
Yet, you are still here, 5 year later, thinking the same thing. Because your last comment is from 2022. So, I don't see how it is laughable, friend.

I think He's 6'1 flat, just look at him next to 5'10 1/2 Andrew Garfield. Do you see a 3 inch difference?
Jolapizza 6'0 5/8 said on 14/Oct/22
So, you discredit your own comment. When Saying that it was an old is the only thing that you have to say, it's even more laughable, friend.

5'11 for him is a joke that's for sure. But he's 1 inch Shorter than Sam smith in most of the time
I see that you upgrade everyone's height. There is no way that he's 188 cm out of bed. Not even close
186.5-184.5 range is more appropriate. Not a strong 6'1, just 6'1 as he claims
don't call 6'2 out of bed on a 6'1 guy haha
5'7 and a fraction said on 28/Aug/22
tbh looks more like 6'1 flat
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Aug/22
Always a very strong 6ft1

Even Chris Martin is contributing to the Bee Gees programme!

6ft1.25. πŸ˜€πŸŽΆ
David Tang said on 21/Aug/21
wait, why is the guess so low. i remember it being above 186 cm
Progking184 said on 23/May/21
Definitely looks tall. Hes not under 6'1. Maybe 6'1 at night and 6'1.25 in the afternoon. Jonny Buckland looks 6'2 for sure
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Apr/21
Chris can really appear all over the place

Anything from 186 to 187cm. Hard to pinpoint
Gianb92 said on 2/Oct/18
For me he is 6ft 1 , not more
MAD SAM said on 10/Jul/18
186 cm definitely !
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jun/18
Looks too tall to be under 6ft1
John wick said on 16/Dec/17
Hi Rob! I think Chris martin is not 186, take a look :

Click Here with one of the guy of Chainsmokers (who is between 6ftΒ½ and 6'1), and he had biggest footwear.
Click Here with 182 Ty Burrell (he look 3cm taller max)
Click Here with 6ft1 Gavin Rossdale (he look a small fraction shorter)
Click Here and Sam Smith is at least 0.5 inches taller.

Even in photos he don't look tall like a 186-187. The reason why he look tall sometime it's because he has very big shoes (you can check).In my opinion he is 185 and that's why he claim 6ft1 (maybe he is 6ft0.75). I think you can downgrade him.
Editor Rob
I'm not sure I've seen enough yet to say 185 is the best mark, 186 I think is ok for him, but sure, I can understand at times he can seem no more than 6ft 1.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Nov/17
I'd stick with B but there's always a chance of A or even the range above that (189cm/187cm)....he's pulled off 6ft1Β½ in the past
Sally said on 3/Oct/17
Thanks for your tribute to the great Tom Petty. He will be missed. πŸ˜”
john wick said on 9/Aug/17
Any chance for him to be a flat 6ft1 rob?
Editor Rob
of course a chance.
HonestSlovene said on 31/Jul/17
Maybe a strong 184 cm at worst but I don't buy under that.
HonestSlovene said on 31/Jul/17
185 cm is spot on for him, even the average guess says so.
Arch Stanton said on 21/Nov/16
Pause at 3:52, that's pretty much how a 186 will look with a 6'4 guy.
Arch Stanton said on 21/Nov/16
Noel said on 30/Oct/16
here he's next to 6'4 Conan a few days ago in his live-show performing one song.
youtube: Click Here
does he really look like 6'1 next to 6'4 conan, rob? what do you think?

Absolutely he looks 6'1 next to Conan. You're totally fooled by Conan's hair. Look where the tops of the heads are, Chris is cofortably above Conan's eye level so no more than 3 inches diff, Conan in dress shoes possibly as a little footwear advantage too.

when coldplay was joined by prince harry at kensington palace, chris martin acutally seemed to be a couple of inches smaller than the prince.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Mar/16
188cm range out of bed is very believable.
JJAbrahamsLincoln said on 11/Mar/16
Rob, what do you think his morning height is?
Editor Rob
maybe a good 187-8 zone
Allie said on 11/Feb/16
He was always slouching and not standing that tall in the super bowl.
grizz said on 3/Feb/16
@Noel, he looks 6'0.5-6'0.75 with Reynolds. I wondered about his height watching him in Hymn for the Weekend. Surprisingly tall.

here another pic with ryan reynols. there's one photo taken at the same event a few comments below, saying "a shade shorter"...
now this has to be from a whole another angle, so there's way more than a shade of difference for sure!

Jonathan said on 6/Sep/15
I would say 186 out of bed. 184 at the end of the day.
Jonathan said on 3/Sep/15
Rob, what do you think about this?
Makes me think more of 6' flat
Click Here
Editor Rob
I wouldn't go with 6ft flat in that clip, I think he still clears 6ft mark there, how much though? As much as 6ft 1, maybe not.
Superman said on 30/Jan/15
Chris Martin 6'1.25 (as listed)
Jonny Buckland 6'2 When standing up straight always taller than Chris
Will Champion 5'11 Look to be about 2 inches shorter than chris
Guy Berryman 5'9
Adey P said on 3/Jan/15
I seen Coldplay collect an MTV award off Jason Biggs years ago. Guy Berryman was at least 2 inches taller than 5 ft 9 listed Biggs, which would put Scottish bassist Berryman at 5 ft 11, Will Champion at 6ft and Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland at at least 6 ft 2.
Adi88 said on 21/Nov/14
I don't know about Jonny Buckland, him and Chris are the same height in all the photos i've seen them in!
truth said on 16/Nov/14
Berryman 175cm Martin 184cm Champion 179cm Buckland 188cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Oct/14
He's not far off Ryan Reynolds in that picture. 186cm is a good shout. Probably about 6ft2 out of bed
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 25/Oct/14
Tall bloke, I'd say 1 meter 86 every bit. May even be near 6 ft 2 out of bed.
TMitty said on 5/Aug/14
Reynolds is bending over a little bit, but Chris is also leaning sidewaysβ€”not standing straight. Chris is a legit 6ft - 6ft 1.
Arch Stanton said on 19/Jun/14
He looks minimum this. He's a naturally slim guy who I think does a lot of running and that as he at times has that wasted look of distance athletes. Really skinny, much like his wife!
Realist said on 15/Jun/14
Rob, absolutely correct. What about Guy Berryman? To me looks more 5'7.5 than 175. Right ROb, i mean he the middle-top of this guys nose.
Editor Rob
I wouldn't have guessed Guy under 5ft 8
Guy said on 25/May/14
I met him in montreal a few years ago, i am 180 and he was just a bit taller than me, he was wearing a pair of big sneakers, i would say he is about 183.
MD said on 9/Jan/14
Reynolds is bending over quite a bit more in that photo than Chris. It's more than a shades difference, for sure.
Arch Stanton said on 7/Jan/14
Click Here Looks a shade shorter than 6'2" Ryan Reynolds.
Hugh 189 said on 26/Dec/13
180-182 cm next to paltrow without heels whom i would give 173 cm.181 if measured on tape in good posture.never a 6 footer.
Hugh 189 said on 26/Dec/13
He looks 181 or 182 or even 180 next to 173 paltrow. Tall and lean can give u impression of a 6foot guy.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 25/Aug/13
Strong 6', 183 or 183.5cm.
Carl said on 19/Jul/13
Size 10 or 11, big sneakers that gave him a good 1.0-1.5 inch
Matthieus said on 26/Jun/13
I can believe he's a pretty tall guy. What size were his big ass sneakers, Carl?
truth178cm said on 5/Feb/13
I think 184-185cm. Paltrow is 173-174cm.
Carl said on 25/Aug/12
I went to a Coldplay concert last month in Montreal and Chris stood right next to me and I can say that he's 185-186cm WITH his big ass sneakers. I am sure he's about 182-183 MAXIMUM barefoot. Almost all celebrities heights on this site are not considering shoe height and size.
Jake: 1.82 m--1.83 m--1.84 m said on 17/Aug/12
A strong 6ft1 seems right on the mark.
FACE said on 30/Jul/12
185-186cm has a good 4 inches on paltrow
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jan/12
Next to Jay Z who I consider to be
6"2 on the dot, looks 1in shorter but
is slouching. I think 186-187cm range
is on right on the money for Martin
miko said on 11/Dec/11
He destroyed Dermot O'Leary on X Factor tonight, at least 5 inches.
Robert said on 26/Nov/11
Tman says on 3/Oct/11
most upgraders here say Jay z is 1,88m Click Here

Jay Z is 6Β΄1" at most, Martin is known for wearing boots, but I think this listing is correct though, 6Β΄1.25" (185,5 - 186 cm).
MD said on 13/Nov/11
Just saw the band on Saturday Night Live, last night. I was right in my assumption that Guy (the shortest member of the band) is not the 5'10" he's listed everywhere. He was a good two inches shorter than Andrew Garfield (who made a guest appearance), at least.
MD said on 4/Oct/11

How tall are the other guys in the band? I see Guy Berryman listed at 5'10", everywhere, but that seems to be too tall a listing, IMO. Maybe the other guys are just all well above average?
Editor Rob
I think they are above average height the other 3

I'd believe 6ft 1.5in for Chris Martin actually, he looks 1.87 m.
Shaun said on 29/Sep/11
i'd put money on Chris Martin and Pierce Brosnan being the same height!
Shaun said on 29/Sep/11
6'1.25-5 looks right.
Shaun said on 29/Sep/11
5'11" for Chris LOL. He has like 4.5 inches on legit 5'9" Paltrow
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jun/11
Viper is an idiot and your an even bigger idiot for saying he's right
truth said on 21/May/11
5ft11-6ft...this site has a tendency to uprage nearly everyone. viper is right.
klem said on 24/Feb/11
He has the pefect height. Looks solid tall but nothing special to point out.
Hansklabam said on 25/Jan/11
Looks 6"2 sometimes, but I believe 6'1.5" is correct since he is quite slim and because of that he gives of a taller look..
Doug said on 7/Apr/09
6'1" is about right. If he wears Size 12 shoes that is usually an indication of a man well over 6'. I wear a size 11 UK, size 12 US shoe and I'm 6'2" and thats a normal size for my height in terms of proportion. He has big feet if he wears Size 12UK if he is just 6'1". Doesn't Steven Seagal also wear a Size 13 US like Chris Martin?
Josh.J said on 14/Feb/09

looks like jay z has maximum of an inch on martin. whilst jay z is standing straight, martin looks to be leaning slightly to shake his hand. assuming that jay z is 6'2 ish, martin looks to be 6'1 and some change.

I have hope for anyone going to a Viva La Vida tour concert!

Okay, so we had like $40 seats, nosebleeders (quite terrible) and my friend and I, while waiting, got up and went to the bathroom. Then this staff member came up to us and said he was giving away "Row 5" tickets and asked how many members were in our group and he gave us all 5th row tickets!

It was honestly the best show and night of my life, wow!

Anyway, the point is, I was able to stand right next to the stage and see Chris Martin and the others, and Martin is at least a strong 6'1.5", he's a quite tall guy. Guy (bassist) actually looked taller than I thought he was too, I think he just looks shorter in photos because everyone else in the band is so tall. I'd say he's at least 5'10", but, yeah, Martin is pushing 6'2".
Zach # 2 said on 31/Oct/08
i recently saw a docu on BBC1 about Jay-Z, and theres a scene where they both talking backstage, both in shoes and they both looked eye to eye, my guess he's a strong 6ft 1.5 pushing onto to 6ft 2"
nate said on 27/Oct/08
looks 6'1 or 6'2 there with jon stewart.
Stephanie said on 20/Aug/08
Yeah, I'd say he's pretty tall. Here's Coldplay on The Daily SHow with Jon Stewart. Jon is about 5'7"

4:26 is a good place to see.
Anonymous said on 29/Jul/08
People are always saying how tall he is, once i heard 6"5? but its clearly bul****, 6ft 1 sounds right to me
Rhonda said on 21/Jul/08
I walked past him once. 6ft 1 sounds about right.
Jack said on 3/Jul/08
Saw him in concert a while back - he is nothing less than a strong 6'1" perhaps pushing 6'2"?
Dave said on 12/Jun/08
Aaron, take a chill pill. Just because you're short, doesn't mean you need to lower the height of others. Gwyneth is 5'9, Chris Martin is 6 ft 1 at least, no doubt about it.
Rhonda said on 11/Mar/08
i would say 6ft-6ft1 is about right for him, hes got a slim build which can make a person look taller than they actually are

we could do with a photo here
Toby said on 5/Sep/07
I saw him and yeah heΒ΄s 186cm
DBD said on 7/Mar/07
He looks about 6'1'' and he wears a UK 12 in adidas trainers
Aaron said on 8/Feb/07
Easy Gonzalo. I was just going by the height that Karen gave for Gywneth and then adding the 3 or 4 inches that Martin has over her, so chill out man.
Gonzalo said on 5/Feb/07
Gwyneth is not 5`7. You guys love to downgrade people`s height. Gwyneth must be at least 5`9 and Chris definitely looks around 6`1
Aaron said on 4/Feb/07
Karen's first picture below makes me feel like 6ft 1 is a little generous assuming that Gwyneth is 5ft7. Martin only has about 3, 4 inches max over her in that pic and the ground seems to be level. So if Gywneth really is only 5ft 7 then I'd agree with Karen saying Martin is about 5ft11.
rwfender said on 15/Aug/06
when I saw Coldplay in concert I had floor seats and Chris Martin walked right past me...he was wearing shoes that looked like thin soled Addidas trainers...He seemed like he was a solid 6'1 (as he claimed himself). I can't see him be anything below a definite 6 feet but 6'1 seems a lot more likely.
Karen said on 29/Jul/06
Not sure if this photos is better, but at least here Martin appears to be barefoot and Paltrow is wearing flip-flops. The only problem is that his head is tilted downward:

Karen said on 27/Jul/06
Here is the entire photo that Height Detective posted. If Gwyneth is 5'7, I'd say Martin is at most 5'11. She is wearing Birkenstocks and he is wearing trainers.

terrible picture, pavement is at angle, he's a bit closer, she's in mid-stride, he's could argue anything here.

He's only an inch taller than Jimmy Fallon. And, saw him in the 4 seasons Austin, Texas. He's 5'11". Not quite 6'. Maybe 6' in heeled boots.
Ed said on 19/Apr/06
Dude, anonymous! Dude! What are you Randy Jackson? It's a bad picture DUDE, plain and simple! At least try to make height estimates from photos where you can see the whole person DUDE. From the waist up doesn't make much sense, DUDE! As far as your gay/obsessed comment, you could say that about every guy, including yourself who discusses a male celebrities height over and over on this site. What makes you any better, DUDE? You're here just as much talking about Martin's height, DUDE!!
Anonymous said on 18/Apr/06
"Plus his stride is in front of hers as they're walking. She's behind him!"

dude you sound gay/obsessed on so many levels...if she's behind him, it's by like one cenitmeter.
Ed said on 17/Apr/06
The only problem with that picture is you can't see there footwear. If Gwyneth is wearing 3 inch heels at 5ft9.25 putting her at 6ft1/4, that still makes Martin 6ft2 1/4 to 6ft2.5. Plus his stride is in front of hers as they're walking. She's behind him!

Ed said on 9/Apr/06
Hey there Anonymous! Even Rob has Mr. Ali G listed at 6ft3.5, which would work totally with my 6ft1.5 guesstimate! There's no way any of us can be 100% sure of height unless we go to the doctors with said celebrity and watch the height measurement in person. Either way, did you meet Cohen or are you just going off your T.V. estimate. I met Chris Martin, and yes he is a pretty wiry built guy which can add an illusion of being taller, but I'm still sticking by 6ft1.5. He was easily 2 inches taller than me.
Anonymous said on 8/Apr/06
dude ed there's no way, he was easily two inches shorter than sasha cohen, who's 6'3 he's not above 6'1 at all...
Ed said on 5/Apr/06
Alright, that's cool! I met the guy in person, but you saw him on TV! Anyways I'll stick by estimate of 6ft1 1/2 barefoot. 6ft2 1/2 with shoes. Measured myself out of interest with the shoes I wear pretty much all the time, and I was 6ft 0.5. dead on, no exagerrations, even though I'd love to be taller. Chris was easily 2 inches taller!

Editor Rob
I actually begin to think 6ft 1.5 might be closer, he might say 6ft 1, but be a little over it...
Anonymous said on 28/Mar/06
no no no he's not anything above 6'1 didn't any of you see the mtv european vmas? he was standing next to ali g(played by sasha cohen) who is 6'3 and was about 2 inches shorter...
Ed said on 22/Feb/06
I just met him, and 6ft1 needs to be changed to 6ft1&1/2 to 6ft2 at a minimum. I'm 5ft11 1/4 in my bare feet, with my shoes on 6ft, maybe a little taller, and Chris was easily 6FT2.5 TO 6FT3. He was wearing shoes similar to shell toed addidas, with maybe an inch sole, at most. I knew he was in the height range of 6ft1 or 2, but in person he seems even taller.
JBW said on 5/Feb/06
Saw Chris Martin, Gwyneth Paltrow & Apple on a flight from Newark, NJ to San Diego about a year ago (Continental- in 1st class, of course). I am 6'2" and I'd say that 6'2" is right. Also, although he's "thin," he's got a pretty broad build, which was unexpected...
RW said on 5/Feb/06
I saw him tonite at a Coldplay show in LA he ran through the audience and was very close to where i was sitting. I would say 6'1 is pretty right on. Great performer.
Anonymous said on 28/Jan/06
I would give him at least 6ft2
sixfoot sammy said on 21/Dec/05
he was taller than mr 6ft 1 johnothan ross when recently appearing on his show recently so i reckon you need to change his height to 6ft2 6ft2.5 maybe
J. said on 9/May/05
In the January 2004 issue of Spin magazine, Chris clearly states his height as 6'1". I can even scan the article if you want.
J. said on 1/May/05
I've seen Coldplay in concert (back when their debut album was first released in the States) and Chris did look just slighty shorter than what he's listed on here. His thiness makes him appear even taller than he is, I think.
Mr. R said on 1/May/05
In last Thursday's LA Times on April 28, Chris is described as "the six foot two singer". Coldplay is in town to play at the Coachella Festival in Palm Springs.
