British rock band Coldplay wowed Glastonbury Festival goers with a thrilling show packed with music from their upcoming album and their classic hits.

The group headlined the Pyramid Stage for the fifth stage, breaking the record as the artists headline the iconic stage the most times.

Coldplay first headlined on the Pyramid Stage in 2002 and overtook The Cure, who have headlined the slot four times, on Saturday night in a performance that saw them throw it back to the year 2000 by opening with their hit song Yellow.

But, it wasn’t the group's musical catalogue of hit after hit that grabbed crowds at home, as members Chris Martin, guitarist Jonny Buckland, drummer Will Champion and bassist Guy Berryman were joined by a Hollywood legend.

Watch the moment Coldplay joined on stage at Glastonbury by Michael J Fox

Back to the Future star Michael J Fox joining Coldplay on stage was the biggest surprise of the night at Glastonbury.

Welcoming the legendary actor on stage, Chris said: “Here's another legendary Michael - one who just totally rocks. With his Chuck Berry riff and the way he punched Biff, ladies and gentlemen please welcome Michael J Fox."

Having the time of his life, Michael was wheeled on stage holding a red guitar ready to perform in front of thousands on the Pyramid stage.

Michael helped Coldplay perform their hit song ‘Fix You’ as many members of the crowds were seen in tears over the emotional song.

Viewers at home shared their thoughts on the Hollywood surprise as one X, formerly a Twitter, user said: “Turned on the Coldplay #Glastonbury set for a bit, only to see THE Michael J Fox on stage, strumming a guitar while Fix You rings out to thousands… that’s quite something.

"Not a massive Coldplay fan anymore but man, you can’t help but appreciate their talent for these things.”
