Across the band’s six gigs at Wembley Stadium, they were joined by a bounty of special guests. On August 17, the band enlisted Shaznay Lewis to cover two All Saints songs, while the previous night saw them joined by Natalie Imbruglia, who paid tribute to the late Olivia Newton-John by covering ‘Summer Nights’ with the band. They also performed Imbruglia’s 1997 hit ‘Torn’.

Meanwhile, Coldplay also welcomed Craig David, who performed his songs ‘Live In The Moment’, ‘Fill Me In’ and ‘7 Days’ at each of the first two Wembley Stadium shows. Other guests included pianist Victoria Canal and Steve Coogan in character as Alan Partridge, who covered ABBA’s 1976 hit ‘Knowing Me, Knowing You’ and Kate Bush’s newly-made-cool-again ‘Running Up That Hill’ alongside Jacob Collier.

During the North American leg of their tour in April, Coldplay also brought out Bruce SpringsteenKylie Minogue and Kelly Rowland, who each performed on-stage covers of their songs ‘Working on a Dream’‘Can’t Get You Out of My Head’ and ‘Independent Women Part I’ respectively.

Reviewing one of the Wembley gigs, NME said: “It’s a joyful spectacle; a masterclass in how a massive pop show can be done. The band seem genuinely thrilled at the reaction, too. “Thank you for coming. These days, it’s so difficult to get to see a show,” Chris notes appreciatively at one point. “Thank you for coming and restoring our faith in humanity; for being peaceful and singing together.” The roars in response indicate that the feeling is mutual.”
