Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin: A Complete Relationship Timeline

Dakota Johnson and Coldplay front man Chris Martin have been together for five years and counting. The habitually private pair met after Martin’s conscious uncoupling from ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow, with whom he shares children Apple and Moses. For a very brief time, Johnson and Martin broke up, before Paltrow herself encouraged them to reunite. But they’ve been going strong ever since, even sparking engagement rumors in 2020.

Here’s how the actor and rocker fell in love.


October 2017: Johnson and Martin spark dating rumors after being spotted on a date at Sushi Park in Los Angeles. Years later, Johnson would go on to tell Vanity Fair that they met through a friend and “never really left each other.”

“Chris and Dakota walked in together and sat at a table for two tucked away in the corner,” an eyewitness tells Us Weekly of the fateful sushi date. “They seemed very happy to see each other and immediately jumped into conversation. She was catching him up on work and the different projects she has coming up. She was telling him where she is going to be and asking him what he thought. They both seemed to really respect each other’s opinions. Chris was very charming and personable. His face lit up when he was talking to her. He hummed a little bit and asked her what she thought of a song. She clearly loves his music and was really into it. They were flirty and laughing the entire meal. He paid for dinner and held the door for her. They both thanked the chefs on the way out.”

November 2017: Fans notice Johnson standing in the sound booth at a Coldplay concert in Buenos Aires, the final stop on the band’s Head Full of Dreams tour. A week later Martin and Johnson are seen canoodling during a trip to Israel, where they catch a Nick Cave concert and hang out with the Aussie rocker over appetizers in Herzliya.

December 2017: The dating rumors pick up speed ahead of the holidays. “Chris sends Dakota his music to get her opinion,” a source shares with Us Weekly. “It’s more than just a fling.”


January 2018: Johnson and Martin step out on a few more dates in the new year: dinner at Soho House, long walks on the beach in Malibu, and memorably, their first public appearance, at Stella McCartney’s autumn 2018 runway show. The lovebirds opt to use a private entrance instead of walking the carpet together, but inside the event they’re clearly an item.

“They walked in holding hands and Dakota was not letting go—she was super into the PDA,” an onlooker reveals to People. “When Chris let go of her hand, she slipped her arm through his.”

The same month Johnson’s father, actor Don Johnson, offers up his take on the relationship rumors in an interview with Digital Spy. “Yeah, that’s…uh, troubling, isn’t it?” he says. “No, she’s a big girl; she can handle herself.”
