Coldplay have paid tribute to Amy Winehouse with a brief cover of one of her most famous songs.

During the Splendour In The Grass festival in Australia, Chris Martin added the chorus of Amy's hit single 'Rehab' into the opening bars of 'Fix You'.

As you can hear in the video below, the Australian crowd lent their voices to the singalong with gusto.

Posting on their website, the band said:

There's little that can be said about Amy Winehouse's passing that hasn't already been said. It's just such a sad waste. We'll leave aside the awful irony and just let the Aussie choir sing.

Last week, Amy's friend and producer Mark Ronson was joined onstage by 'Valerie' writer and Zutons singer Dave McCabe for a tribute to the late singer.

In other Coldplay news, a fan was thought to have uncovered the name of the band's next album. On the topic of their forthcoming album, Chris Martin's wife Gwyneth Paltrow jokingly tweeted, "Who do I have to bang to get an advance copy of the new @coldplay album? I mean, really."
