Coldplay made history on Saturday night as the first band to headline Glastonbury Festival five times - but their set didn't quite go to plan. Chris Martin and the rest of the band arrived 15 minutes late for their spot on the Pyramid Stage.

The band wasted no time with introducing themselves and kick things off with their hit yellow. And soon they were launching into hit after hit including The Scientist and Higher Power.

They had the crowd going wild and waving their LED wristbands as they brought out the confetti cannons and fireworks early doors. But some were annoyed by their late arrival.

@Coldplaykind wrote on X, formerly Twitter: "The way Coldplay almost missed their first headline set and now they’re late again." @147Sturls commented: "You’re already late lads. Put a shift in!," adding an eye rolling emoji.

@solarspheres said: "10 mins late ffs classic Coldplay." @NajJanetto argued: "Always late but worth the wait."

And @haneIizabeth echoed: "Coldplay late what's new." @humanheart___ chimed in: "is it really a coldplay show if they aren't late."

Frontman Chris previously predicted the band's astronomical success the year before they had even released their first album. On June 26, 1998, a then-22-year-old musician stood in the field of UCL's Wye Farming College during his end-of-year ball and declared what the future of Coldplay would be.

He said: 'Jon Buckland, Chris Martin, Will Champion and Guy Berryman Act of the Coldplay. They're going to go on to be such a huge band. This will be on national television within four years. Four years.'
