The closing ceremony will mark the official end of the London 2012 games and the handover to the 2016 Paralympic host Rio de Jeneiro, followed by the final extinguishing of the flame.

The Paralympic closing ceremony will see best-selling band Coldplay headlining the 'Festival of the Flame' concert. The ceremony will also contain the iconic traditions of any Paralympic closing ceremony, such as the flag bearers and the Parade of Athletes. Unlike the Olympic parade, athletes will all enter the stadium simultaneously as opposed to one country at a time; a final show of unity following 11 days of intense competition.

Check the forecast for the Olympic Park if you have tickets to see the closing ceremony at London 2012.
