Arsenal scored three first-half goals but could not complete an epic comeback against AC Milan, who held on to reach the Champions League quarter-finals.
Milan, leading 4-0 from the first leg, were rocked when Laurent Koscielny headed home a corner and a mistake let Tomas Rosicky slot in Arsenal’s second.
Robin van Persie’s penalty increased the Gunners’ momentum before the break.
But the Dutchman missed a golden chance from close range and Milan had the best openings in a frantic end to the game.
Arsenal’s night ultimately ended in glorious failure but the spirit and verve with which they went about a seemingly impossible task means they bow out of Europe with their heads held high.
