Nick Clegg called the Liberal Democrat manifesto "an insurance policy against a government lurching off to the extremes" after the election.
With neither Labour nor Conservatives making a breakthrough in opinion polls, Clegg said the big question for voters is which party will join David Cameron or Ed Miliband in coalition.
He urged voters to consider "what will become of Britain" if Ukip's Nigel Farage or the SNP's Alex Salmond get into government.
He pledged that Liberal Democrats would always act responsibly, fairly and "in the best interests of Britain" if they return to government as part of a coalition, promising, "We will add a heart to a Conservative government and we will add a brain to a Labour one."
