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.

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.
