    Coldplay will perform a set at the closing ceremony of the London 2012 games.

    The Chris Martin-fronted band will play the ceremony on Sept. 9 at London's Olympic Stadium as part of an event dubbed "Festival of the Flame."

    "Being asked to play at the closing celebrations for the Paralympic athletes in London is such a great honor for us. Kim Gavin and Misty Buckley 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," said Martin, husband of Gwyneth Paltrow.

    Will you watch any of the Olympics?
