Coldplay tasked lighting designer Paul Normandale with realising their vision of having projection spheres suspended above their audience as part of their "ongoing mission to make a big room feel as small as possible". The spheres would not only have to be big to carry impact in large arenas, but would need to be moved in and out of view during the performance. They would need to be capable of displaying live camera feeds as well as motion graphics and would need to slot in seamlessly with the show control as a whole.
