The following comes from BBC News:
Coldplay singer Chris Martin joined US band REM on stage at the climax of Oxfam's Make Trade Fair benefit show in Hammersmith, London, on Tuesday.
The British star joined REM's Michael Stipe on vocals for Man on the Moon during their "surprise" headline set.
The event also featured Jamelia, The Thrills, actress-turned-singer Minnie Driver and comedian Ricky Gervais.
Coldplay have been big supporters of Make Trade Fair, which calls for reform of world trade laws to reduce poverty.
"I was introduced to the idea of fair trade because I'm a massive Coldplay fan, so I'd like to thank Chris Martin," Stipe told the crowd.
