Coldplay Joined By Rihanna, Jay-Z To Close Paralympics
Paradise rockers put on an impressive 16-song set to end the event...
Chris Martin and Co were watched by 80,000 people at the Olympic Stadium in Stratford, East London, opening their show with Us Against The World.
Their set, which featured as part of the three-hour closing ceremony, also included the Coldplay classics Yellow, The Scientist and Clocks.
RiRi, who was dressed head-to-toe in red, made a grand entrance to join the band on stage, arriving on a wooden ship to sing their hit duet, Princess of China.
The Bajan babe then went on to perform her own track We Found Love, while Jay-Z hooked up with both Rihanna and Coldplay for a rendition of Run This Town.
Jigga also joined Coldplay for a version of their song Paradise, before wrapping their set with Every Teardrop is a Waterfall.
Coldplay previously described their stint closing the Paralympics as "the biggest night of our lives."
Rihanna also added: "Being at the Paralympics is the biggest honour. These athletes are gladiators and a true inspiration to me."
Team GB stars David Weir and Sarah Storey - who both took home four gold medals each - also played a part in the ceremony, carrying the Union Jack into the stadium.
Their fellow 4,200 Paralympians were then gathered on stage in the middle of the venue, with an impressive firework display marking the end of the sporting event.
