Coldplay are auctioning off memorabilia from their Mylo Xyloto world tour for charity.
The band have donated instruments and stage outfits used during the shows in an online auction to raise funds for Kids Company.
The charity works with vulnerable children and young people in London and Bristol.
The sale comes ahead of the band’s charity concert, Under 1 Roof, on 19 December at London’s Eventim Apollo.
They’ll be joined for the show by David Brent and Foregone Conclusion, Lily Allen, Dynamo and Rizzle Kicks. The evening will be hosted by Radio 1 DJ Fearne Cotton.
Chris Martin said: “Buying a ticket to this concert will guarantee two things: a totally unique never-to-be-repeated night of star-spangled entertainment, and money in the Christmas coffers of a charity that brings love and happiness to London’s most vulnerable kids.”
