BBC News is reporting on Coldplay's only British concert of the year, having just recently played the Isle of Wight festival for 60,000 fans:
Coldplay received one of the best receptions of the weekend at the Isle of Wight, playing songs from their three albums plus a cover of Lou Reed's Perfect Day.
Chris Martin told the crowd they would release a single called Do the Crouch if England did well at the World Cup - before performing Peter Crouch's robotic dance.
He also invited a young blonde woman to sit on the stage and sip champagne for two songs as "crowd member of the year".
The band, who had the world's best-selling album of 2005, are about to embark on a tour of Australia and Japan.
Head on over to BBC News for the complete lowdown.
