The quartet of rock and pop heavyweights played a gig in aid of War Child at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire.
All four acts had attended the annual music ceremony at Earl’s Court in town earlier in the evening, with Brandon Flowers and co taking the stage first just after 11pm.
After running through an eight-song set, closing with “Mr Brightside” and “When You Were Young”, Coldplay took over.
They played ten songs, drawing to a finish with a cover of “Back For Good”, featuring the boy band’s leader Gary Barlow.
Introducing the singer, Martin told the crowd: “I think everyone agrees that the band to see at the moment is Take That.
“We’ve just got back from Japan, lost all the BRITs, it’s been a sh*t day frankly, but it’s going to get better, please welcome Mr Gary Barlow!”
To finish, The Killers re-emerged with Bono from U2 to run through “All These Things That I’ve Done”.
