The 'Paradise' band will pick up the award at the ceremony in London next month.

Coldplay say they are "honoured" to be named Best British Act for this year's Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef Awards 2013, describing the charity as one that is "very close" to their hearts.

The 'Princess Of China' four-piece will be presented with the prestigious award at the official Silver Clef Awards ceremony at the end of June in London, where 'Earthquake' singer Labrinth will also be presented with the the American Express Innovation Award.

"It means a huge amount to us to be named Best British Act by Nordoff Robbins at the 2013 O2 Silver Clef Awards," Coldplay frontman Chris Martin said in a statement. "Nordoff Robbins is an organisation that lies very close to our hearts.

"They provide life-changing music therapy for thousands of people each year and we're humbled to collect this award in their honour."

The charity, which provides music therapy for those suffering from illnesses including autism and dementia, hosts the fund-raising event every year.

Last month it was announced Coldplay are also up for an Ivor Novello Award for Most Performed Work for their single 'Paradise', with the show being held later this month (16th May).

The Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef Awards 2013 will take place at the London Hilton on Park Lane on 28th June.
