What is the "standard basis" for fields of complex numbers?

What is the "standard basis" for fields of complex numbers? For example, what is the standard basis for $\\Bbb C^2$ (two-tuples of the form: $(a + bi, c + di)$)? I know the standard for $\\Bbb R^2$ is $((1, 0), (0, 1))$. Is the standard basis exactly the same for complex numbers? **P.S.** - I realize this question is very simplistic, but I couldn't find an authoritative answer online.
