Coldplay had an extra special surprise for fans at their concert on Saturday night, welcoming the one and only Steve Coogan (in character as Alan Partridge) to the stage.

For their two-song micro-set at London's Wembley Stadium, the impromptu supergroup belted out a cover of ABBA's 1976 hit 'Knowing Me, Knowing You' and Kate Bush's '80s track 'Running Up That Hill.'

Clad in a gaudy red tracksuit, Partridge took the reins from Chris Martin on lead vocals, while the Coldplay frontman played acoustic guitar and sang backup.

Unsurprisingly, the audience joined in, singing along with the iconic lyrics from the classic duet.
