Coldplay covered Amy Winehouse's 'Rehab' in tribute to the singer during an appearance at Splendour In The Grass festival in Australia.

Frontman Chris Martin played the song's chorus ahead of Coldplay's own song, 'Fix You' – and you can hear it below on Gigwise.

The group, who headlined the festival, also paid tribute to Winehouse in a statement on their website.

“There’s little that can be said about Amy Winehouse’s passing that hasn’t already been said,” they said. “It’s just such a sad waste. We’ll leave aside the awful irony and just let the Aussie choir sing.”

Coldplay's performance at Splendour In The Grass on Sunday (July 31) also saw Martin lead fans in a birthday sing-a-long for drummer Will Champion, who was celebrating his 33rd birthday.

Winehouse died last month at the age of 27.
