Coldplay's Viva La Vida stadium tour arrived at the massive Wembley stadium for the first of two consecutive concerts in London. This show was recorded for a DVD after the Barcelona film was scrapped following sound problems. Once again Jay-Z made a special appearance during Lost. No other major changes to the setlist. Simon Pegg made an appearance during the acoustic set on the C-stage and wore his own military outfit. See more pictures from the front of the C-stage after the jump. Check out the first videos of the Coldplay Wembley yellow glowstick choreography at the Coldplay live forum. More on this concert tomorrow!

Iwona and myself are also back at the hotel. Transportation into London worked amazingly well, we were really surprised that it didn't take that long at all to get away from Wembley, given the amount of people heading to Wembley Park Tube station. Front row C-Stage, got my banner out which Iwona and Petra helped holding with me and when Chris entered the C-Stage he was looking closely to read it and we got another thumbs up. This is so great to be acknowledged ... Even my penfriend Paul who was standing behind me said completely surprised that Chris recognized me and the banner which really seemed to have impressed him. [thanks Littlemissmessy]
I am still quite speechless - they totally rocked Wembley!!!! It was amazing!!!! The audience and whole atmosphaere was amazing! Sooooooooooooo happy to have the guys back home - in Chris words "...it's nice to have a home come back to!". I am sure I will have tears streaming down my face tomorrow! P. [thanks worldtrav]
Unbelieveable concert - Far too much to tell you so I will keep this review snappy and concentrate on the pics. Decided not to take up a position for front row and instead went for the beer and seat option - but the C-Stage which was still quite empty at around 6pm was becoming too hard to resist. Got front row with the band facing us and Simon Pegg with a cameo roll again! There were one or two idiots in the crowd almost starting fights because of the pushing and shoving. The end of the concert was fun with several Coldplayers taking handfuls of LRLRL CDs and distributing them to the leaving crowd, especially Chavi who almost got mobbed by 20 people when they realised she was holding a full box. Also, hi to the guy I spoke with at the C-stage about running the Coldplaying site [busybeeburns]
More on this concert including reviews, videos, pictures and tweets here onwards.
