Chris Martin -- Pops Indian Concert Cherry (VIDEO)

1.25 BILLION people want a piece of Chris Martin, and he finally gave in last night -- with a surprise performance in India. 

Martin was out to dinner with Frida Pinto and folk musician Raghu Dixit in New Delhi on Wednesday night ... when he decided to hop on stage with an acoustic guitar and play a few songs. 

Coldplay has never done a gig in India -- even though there are websites begging them to play there. Based on the reception Chris got last night ... looks like he better get the boys on a plane, stat.
