No doubt Coldplay is like totally the coolest and most famous group around.

But that doesn't mean everyone knows who frontman Chris Martin is.

The rocker was at the Thompson Beverly Hills hotel on Saturday, apparently to meet up with some friends on the rooftop. (The band kicked off their summer tour in Los Angeles July 14.)

Unfortunately, Martin's name wasn't on the list at the elevator that takes patrons to the roof.

"A goon at the elevator wouldn't let him up," a source reports. "Everyone's like, 'This is the lead singer of Coldplay.' The goon wasn't rude, but he just asked him if he was on the list."

We're happy to report that said goon eventually got the go-ahead from upstairs to let the patiently waiting Martin through.
