The 'Paradise' stars auctioned off the graffiti drawn wall which featured on their recent album cover.

Coldplay managed to raise over £500,000 after auctioning off the graffiti-covered wall, taken from the album cover for their most recent record 'Mylo Xyloto'.

The 'Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall' stars auctioned off the piece, which has been displayed recently at at the Proud Galleries in Camden, raising funds for Kids Company.

The charity looks to help children who are deemed at risk, living in London.

The image was a collaboration with street artist Paris and the auction also featured three original pieces drawn from the group for the event.

The album cover was sold to an anonymous bidder from the Far East, and the rest of the sales helped bring their total to an impressive £610,000.

"Take a bow Coldplay fans. An incredible £610,000 raised so far from the Mylo art sale," they wrote on the band's official Twitter page.

Meanwhile, the group's frontman Chris Martin has also recently been added to the line-up for the upcoming Hurricane Sandy Relief Concert in New York's Madison Square Garden, raising money for those affected by the late October storms which hit the East Coast of America.
