As a culmination of the nearly two weeks of competition in sports including cycling, swimming, sailing and archery by athletes who have a range of physical disabilities, Coldplay performed at tonight’s closing ceremonies of the Paralympic Games.
The band was joined at London’s Olympic Stadium by their pal Jay-Z for a new version of “Paradise,” and Rihanna duetted with Chris Martin on “Princess Of China.” Jay-Z, Rihanna, and Coldplay also joined forces for “Run This Town.”

Coldplay is no stranger to supporting great causes. The British band has actively supported Oxfam for several years, advocating for issues including making trade fair to end injustices against poor farmers, and Oxfam’s Hope for Haiti Appeal, calling for funds to help those affected by the country’s severe 2010 earthquake. They also are huge supporters of Amnesty International and worked with Mercy Corps on a benefit album to provide aid to victims of Hurricane Katrina.
