Between releasing a new video, a new single and planning an entire album,  Chris Martin  still found time to help a charity. The  Coldplay  frontman donated his time and creative juices to help Upbeat, a mental health charity based in the U.K. Martin is part of the organizations' Art in a Box project, where musical and creative artists are given a canvas, paints, brushes and an easel, and told to let loose. 

Chris Martin's painting -- along with those from  Blur 's  Graham Coxon ,  Suggs  from ska-punk band  Madness , and  Ricky Wilson  of the  Kaiser Chiefs , among many others -- are available for online bidding at  Eazl.co.uk . On May 23, the auction will go live in London for final bidding, with phone bidding available for those who cannot attend in person. 

Coldplay's next studio album,  Ghost Stories , is set to drop May 19. All iTunes pre-orders will receive an instant download of the just-released first single, "Magic."
