Coldplay are pulling out all the stops for the release of their new album, Music of the Spheres.

To celebrate their ninth studio album — out Friday, Oct. 15 — Coldplay took to the stage of London’s O2 Arena for a special one-off concert.

The crowd received a big surprise when the band welcomed a special guest: Ed Sheeran, who joined Coldplay frontman Chris Martin for a duet of the band’s hit single “Fix You”.
