Coldplay will reportedly play a private concert for Homer and Bart
Coldplay will become the latest band to make a guest appearance in animated comedy The Simpsons, their spokesman has confirmed.
The band will reportedly be hired by Homer to play a private concert for him and Bart after he wins the lottery.
"When Bart goes to the bathroom, Coldplay has to stop," executive producer Al Jean told US website Entertainment Weekly.
Coldplay follow in the footsteps of artists including U2 and Sting.
Sir Paul McCartney, Johnny Cash, Elton John and The Moody Blues have also made appearances.
The voices of celebrities including comedy actor Seth Rogen and actress Neve Campbell will reportedly also feature in the 21st season of The Simpsons, which will be shown in the US on Fox from 27 September.
Entertainment Weekly said the late singer and actress Eartha Kitt had also recorded audio for an episode for the new season before her death on Christmas Day last year.
