In the meantime, fans of the bands have been redeeming the time by making beautiful fanart inspired by the upcoming song. The fandoms perfectly use iconic imagery from both groups, BTS’s whale and the color purple and Coldplay’s octopus.
So, here are 10+ of the most awe-inspiring fanart for “My Universe:”
1. ARMY is at the center here of BTS and Coldplay’s universe
