Coldplay have ended months of speculation to confirm they will be among the headliners at Glastonbury Festival this summer.

The band had been widely tipped to top the bill and have now announced they will play the Pyramid Stage on Saturday 25 June. Coldplay last played the event in 2005 but members have often spoken warmly about the festival.

Last week, Beyoncé revealed she was to be one of the main acts but the full line-up is yet to be announced. Organiser Michael Eavis said: "Coldplay are one of the greatest phenomena to grow from these fields."
