Coldplay are to make a guest appearance on ‘The Simpsons’.

The British indie band - lead by Chris Martin - will play themselves in a forthcoming episode in the long-running cartoon series.

The band will make their cameo when Homer Simpson wins the lottery and hires the group to play a personal one-off performance for him and his son Bart.

Executive producer of the show, Al Jean, told website Entertainment Weekly: “When Bart goes to the bathroom, Coldplay has to stop.”

The animated show – now in its 21st series – has included many musical guests over its 20 years on the air including Michael Jackson, U2, Ramones, Aerosmith, Sonic Youth and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Other guests confirmed for the latest series include Sarah Silverman, Anne Hathaway, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Neve Campbell and the recently deceased actress Eartha Kitt, who recorded a part shortly before passing away last year.

The series will be broadcast in the US from September.
