    Looking good, Chris Martin!

    The Coldplay frontman and his bandmates hit the streets of Sydney on Tuesday, where they were snapped filming the new music video for their hit tune "A Sky Full of Stars," the third lead single from their sixth studio album, Ghost Stories.

    Martin sung and played guitar while sporting a one-man band drum on his back, but all we could notice were his incredibly bulging biceps!

    The 37-year-old musician flaunted his seriously toned physique in a gray tank top while on set in Newton, flexing his muscles for the hundreds of fans who were hoping to become extras in the video.

    Seriously, who knew Chris was so ripped?!

    Flashback to October 2011 when Gwyneth Paltrow's ex performed live at Absolute Radio in London, where he was seen with a far more scrawny appearance (although of course he still looked handsome), and it's clear that the father of two has certainly been hitting the gym as of late.

    Of course, his amped-up workouts should come as no surprise, considering Coldplay is currently in the midst of a six-day promotional tour Down Under, which will include a performance at Sydney's Enmore Theater, where the Rolling Stones and Oasis have previously played, as well as an appearance by Martin on The Voice Australia.

    As for his workout regime? Martin is believed to have hired a $186-an-hour personal trainer, who was recommended by pal Jay Z, and has reportedly taking up boxing to work up a sweat.

    "Chris is a big fan of boxing and loves nothing better than working out with a punch bag," a source told the U.K. Mirror back in April. "Chris has been doing it for a little over a month now to get in shape for his forthcoming tour. He doesn't want ridiculous biceps, but he wants to build some definition in his skinny arms and improve his stamina."

    Looks like the hard work has paid off!
