Coldplay top Wembley Stadium poll

British band Coldplay's Capital FM's Summertime Ball performance has been crowned Wembley Stadium's best moment of 2012.

The four piece - comprising Chris Martin, Guy Berryman, Will Champion, Jonny Buckland - topped a Facebook poll conducted by the iconic London stadium - beating off stiff competition from the likes of the England football team.

Coldplay - who took the crown with 71% of the vote - performed in front of an 80,000-strong crowd at the event and impressed with a set list of some of their greatest hits.

Canadian superstar Justin Bieber's performance at the event earlier this year scored him third place in the poll.

Coldplay's frontman Chris Martin said of the accolade: "This is a great honour for us. We doff our cap to Capital FM and their amazing summertime extravaganza, and we're completely humbled by our incredible fans who voted for us. 

He added: "This award is for them - and for our physics-defying crew - and we hope the stone on Wembley Way makes them proud."

Wembley Stadium is gifting Coldplay a personalised commemorative stone in honour of their performance.

Others that featured in the top ten were Team GB women’s football team and the men's England football squad.
