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.

The performances will be streamed live on YouTube from Amman and will mirror the titles of their 52-minute double album by being performed at Sunrise and Sunset.
The Sunrise concert will begin at 4am GMT and the Sunset concert at 2pm GMT.

Asked who he'd like to see play the festival's 50th anniversary next year, the Yellow singer said: "I don’t know, the great thing about Glastonbury is it’s always a bit unpredictable […] and that is a great thing…"
