Coldplay have been confirmed as a headliner for this year’s Glastonbury.

The announcement ends months of speculation that squillion selling band Coldplay will play on the Pyramid stage at Worthy Farm, Pilton on June 25.

After booking the quartet for his little farm shindig organiser Michael Eavis said:

“Coldplay have played such a major part in the festival over the last 10 years or so. As their popularity grew around the world, I was so proud of them. This is the triumphant return of a band that everyone here feels part of. They’re one of the greatest phenomena to grow from these fields.”

Coldplay last played the event in 2005.

They will join Beyonce, confirmed for the festival only last week, and U2, who had to cancel last year due to Bono’s dicky back.

Coldplay are currently working on the as yet to be named follow-up to 2008’s Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends.

The record is being produced by Brian Eno and Markus Dravs.
