In a surprise turn, Coldplay's Chris Martin showed up, played some tunes off Rush of Blood to the Head and then teamed up with the Echo And The Bunnymen frontman Ian Mcculloch for a cover of Lou Reed's Walk On The Wild Side.

In addition to live performances from Evan Dando, Faithless, Beth Orton, Paul Weller and Fran Healy, video messages from the likes of Yoko Ono, System of a Down and Elton John were also shown.
