The following slokas from Srimad Bhagavatam indirectly says that Krishna is present at multiple places at the same time

SB 10.59.43: The Lord, performer of the inconceivable, constantly remained in each of His queens' palaces, which were unequaled and unexcelled by any other residence. There, although fully satisfied within Himself, He enjoyed with His pleasing wives, and like an ordinary husband He carried out His household duties.

SB 10.59.44: Thus those women obtained as their husband the husband of the goddess of fortune, although even great demigods like Brahma do not know how to approach Him. With ever-increasing pleasure they experienced loving attraction for Him, exchanged smiling glances with Him and reciprocated with Him in ever-fresh intimacy, replete with joking and feminine shyness.

SB 10.59.45: Although the Supreme Lord's queens each had hundreds of maidservants, they chose to personally serve the Lord by approaching Him humbly, offering Him a seat, worshiping Him with excellent paraphernalia, bathing and massaging His feet, giving Him pan to chew, fanning Him, anointing Him with fragrant sandalwood paste, adorning Him with flower garlands, dressing His hair, arranging His bed, bathing Him, and presenting Him with various gifts.

Similarly, are there any other slokas from the same text(Srimad Bhaghavatham) that directly says that the phenomena of Krishna's presence at multiple places at the same time?

    Krishna is present everywhere in same time not just at multiple places. Even this comment is typed by Krishna with my body as mere instrument! – Akshay S Oct 20 '18 at 5:35

Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (Bhāgavata Purāṇa) » 10.13 also mention Lord Krishna's physical presence at multiple places.

When Lord Brahma took away all the cowherd boys and calves to show some of his own power and see the power of Lord Krishna:

SB 10.13.19 — By His Vāsudeva feature, Kṛṣṇa simultaneously expanded Himself into the exact number of missing cowherd boys and calves, with their exact bodily features, their particular types of hands, legs and other limbs, their sticks, bugles and flutes, their lunch bags, their particular types of dress and ornaments placed in various ways, their names, ages and forms, and their special activities and characteristics. By expanding Himself in this way, beautiful Kṛṣṇa proved the statement samagra-jagad viṣṇumayam: “Lord Viṣṇu is all-pervading.”

SB 10.13.21 — O Mahārāja Parīkṣit, Kṛṣṇa, who had divided Himself as different calves and also as different cowherd boys, entered different cow sheds as the calves and then different homes as different boys.

After 1 human year (for Lord Brahma this was negligible time as his one day = 1 Kalpa), Lord Brahma visited Vṛndāvana again and could then understand Lord Krishna's potency.
