Monday night at the Beacon Theatre was the first stop of a six-city mini-tour that British rock group Coldplay is embarking on to promote its latest LP, Ghost Stories. Take that, Los Angeles, Glasgow, Paris, Tokyo and London. Chris Martin & Co. gave the crowd at the venerable Upper West Side concert hall more than a taste of the new material, playing seven songs off the record, including recent singles “Magic” and “A Sky Full of Stars.” In one of his first stage performances since his “conscious uncoupling” from actor Gwyneth Paltrow, lead singer Martin was his usual spry and charismatic self, deftly switching between his guitar and his piano during the 16-song set. He was on the latter during crowd sing-along favorite, “Fix You,” which Martin dedicated to Mick Jagger—the Rolling Stones frontman is grieving the passing of girlfriend L’Wren Scott, who committed suicide in March.

Ghost Stories will be released on May 19.

Here’s the full set list from last night’s perfomance:

“Always in My Head”
“Charlie Brown”
“Paradise”
“Magic”
“Clocks”
“Another’s Arms”
“God Put a Smile Upon Your Face”
“'Til Kingdom Come”
“Midnight”
“Viva la Vida”
“Fix You”
“Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall”

Encore 1
“Oceans”
“A Sky Full of Stars”
“Life Is for Living”

Encore 2
“True Love”
