London (ANI): Alternative rock band Coldplay was bagged two prizes at the Q Awards ceremony in London. They took home the best album award for Viva La Vida or Death To All His Friends, and the best act in the world today gong. Their frontman Chris Martin, 31, picked up the best album prize.
During his acceptance speech, Martin declared that Coldplay was 'the greatest band in the world', though he retracted the comment later. "Well, not quite the biggest band. U2 are on holiday. Radiohead are on holiday," the BBC quoted him as saying.
Martin later returned to receive the best act in the world today award. "I don't think we're the best act in the room, let alone the world," he added.
