The 'Paradise' stars are the first act confirmed for the summer extravaganza at Wembley Stadium.
Coldplay have been announced as the first act confirmed to perform at this year's Capital FM Summertime Ball in London.
The band, fronted by Chris Martin, will take to the stage at Wembley Stadium in London on 9th June 2012.
Coldplay have enjoyed a hugely successful 12 months following the release of their fifth album 'Mylo Xyloto', which included the singles 'Paradise', 'Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall' and 'Charlie Brown'.
As well as opening this year's BRIT Awards in London, the band are currently on a world tour in support of the album, and are due to play sold-out dates in the UK later this year.
The Summertime Ball 2012 line-up will also feature a host of some of the biggest names in music – with the rest of the acts ready to be announced later today.
Meanwhile, the band debuted a clip of their music video for 'Princess Of China', which features Bajan star Rihanna, on their current North American outing.
Tickets for the fourth edition of the event go on general sale on Monday (23rd April 2012) at 8am.
If you're a Capitalfm.com VIP or a Vodafone customer, you can get access to an exclusive tickets pre-sale now.
