One lucky Dublin fan is the proud owner of handwritten Coldplay lyrics, penned by frontman Chris Martin’s fair hand.

Colma O’Bhriain was the Irish winner of a treasure hunt created by the band to celebrate the release of their new album, Ghost Stories.

Words to all nine songs on the album were hidden inside horror-themed books in cities across the world, for one lucky fan to find and keep.

Yesterday, the band began the eighth treasure hunt in Dublin by tweeting this cryptic clue:

Eventually the handwritten lyrics were discovered by Colma at Dundrum Library in Dublin, concealed in a copy of C Funke’s Ghosthunters & The Bloodthirsty Baroness:
