Chris Martin and co have announced the special gig to celebrate the release of their Everyday Life album, with all proceeds going towards the work of ClientEarth.

Coldplay have announced a one-off charity show at London's Natural History Museum.

Chris Martin and co will play the historic building on Monday 25 November to celebrate the release of their new album Everyday Life, which comes out the previous Friday.

All proceeds from the show will go towards the work of ClientEarth, an environmental charity which uses the power of the law to protect the planet and its people.

The performance will mark Coldplay's first in London since 2016, when they played four sold out nights at Wembley Stadium as part of their A Head Full of Dreams world tour.

Exclusive access to tickets will be given to UK fans we pre-order, or have already pre-ordered, the band's Everyday Life album from the official Coldplay store before 11.59pm on Thursday 21 November.

The special gig will be the only UK date during their Everyday Life era.
