Coldplay Go Yellow for ‘The Simpsons’

British rockers Coldplay have signed up to appear in hit animated show The Simpsons.

The cartoon series regularly features star guests and has seen cameos from high-profile acts including Michael Jackson, the Rolling Stones, Green DayAerosmith and U2.

And now the “Yellow” hitmakers are set to join the yellow cast for a one-off episode, in which comedic patriarch Homer Simpson wins the lottery and hires the band to perform a private show for his family.

Late singer Eartha Kitt will also appear in the upcoming 21st season of the show — she filmed her appearance before her death last year. The new episodes are due to air in September.
