according to these sources, the trial was to to last 4 months from the start of November, therefore ending at the end of February. However, a glance at FlightRadar24.com shows that this morning (March 27th) dual runway landings are apparently in operation.
I know FlightRadar24 is wholly accurate but this definitely seems quite clear.

Mixed mode is operable until 7.00 however you will note that its still NOT parallel landing as aircraft remain well spaced .
Between 12.30 and 3 PM a small number of landings can also request the departure runway subject to traffic.
(More common on the 09s through0

Quoting lhr380 (Reply 1): Early mornings they do a mini mixed mode with some airlines requesting 27L instead of right or 9R instead of left. Mainly it's T4 airlines or the T3 380s that want to say THAT side of the airport
That was mentioned in the article as well but indicated it was also part of the trial.

I do remember that there was going to be a second trial period. It was announced and the usual noise protesters started again. I would rather they have a test, but not announce it to see just how many noise complaints actually happen. Sadly, that won't happen.
Me: (Lining up on final) I shall now select an aiming point. || Instructor: Well, I hope it's the runway...
