Coldplay will perform at the closing ceremony for the 2012 Paralympic Games at London's Olympic Stadium on September 9 as part of the Festival of the Flame event.
"Being asked to play at the closing celebrations for the Paralympic athletes in London is such a great honour for us," said frontman Chris Martin.
"[We] are working hard to put on a spectacular Paralympic Games Closing Ceremony for the athletes and spectators in the stadium, and everyone watching around the world, and we are so happy to be involved," he added.
"The London 2012 Paralympic Games are going to be spectacular. I am delighted that Coldplay are going to be helping us celebrate not only the end of a fantastic Paralympic Games, but also the end of a seven year journey," noted a rep for the games.
The Paralympic Games are a multi-sport event in which the physically disabled compete.
