Recently, the band played a massive role in the One Love Manchester concert, which was held by Ariana Grande to honour the families of those affected by the Manchester bombing last year.
The band joined the singer on stage to duet on a cover of Oasis’ Don’t Look Back In Anger’, before singer Chris Martin joined Liam Gallagher to duet on ‘Live Forever’.
Despite their previous differences, Liam has also confirmed that they have buried the hatchet after the duet.
Speaking at PinkPop festival, he said: “They’ve never sounded so good have they, Coldplay? I was like, ‘Fucking hell, you sound good man. I take back everything I’ve ever said about you. You sound fucking really good.’”
