Coldplay Accused of Plagiarism?

I'm not a fan of Coldplay, but I thought this was a little unsettling...

The song they didn't write? Coldplay are accused of plagiarism by American band (The Independent)

He blamed Chris Martin for the alleged artistic theft, saying that Coldplay's frontman attended a Creaky Boards concert in New York last year. "We were flattered when we thought we saw Chris Martin in the crowd," said Mr Hoepfner. "He seemed pretty into it... Maybe TOO into it?"
