The 'Paradise' stars played a hit laden set inside Wembley Stadium this afternoon.
Coldplay kicked off the Summertime Ball 2012 in style with a hit packed set in front of a packed 80,000 fans in Wembley Stadium today (9th June).
Arriving on stage after a series of explosive pyrotechnics the band launched into their 'Mylo Xyloto' hit 'Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall".
After the song, Chris Martin scream: "You sound fantastic for four in the afternoon".
The group then teased the later performance of teen star Justin Bieber and confessed: "We're Justin Bieber's dads".
The group then played their smash hit 'Yellow' before giving an outing to their Rihanna collaboration 'Princess Of China'.
The band joked that the audience would have to help them out after a problem on stage.
"You'll have to help us out – it's broken but we don't care".
After a rousing rendition of Viva La Vida which brought the crowd to their feet it was time for the powerful riff of 'Charlie Brown' with the band shouting: "Are there any Beliebers out there," before the track.
