Whatever you do it needs to be central to all users.

You could configure a failover route on the router itself to redirect traffic to an IP with a hosted error page. As soon as the proxy comes back online, the router will be able to direct traffic as normal.

Rather depends on your proxy server but you can usually configure a custom error page for status codes, something like this:

error_page 502 503 /path_to_your_custom_page

not easy, as the custom error page wont be displayed if the proxy is down.

may have to consider creating a custom page on the clients, via group policy for example, which shows hew custom error whenever it cannot connect to the proxy.

otherwise you'll have to arrange a second proxy which can process the error page when the primary proxy is down.
