Coldplay are set to perform on US talent show American Idol next week.

The British indie band will appear on the show on May 3, following in the footsteps of Lana Del Rey and Nicki Minaj.

Meanwhile, Coldplay have roped in an all-star line-up to support them on their forthcoming European stadium tour. Marina And The Diamonds, Robyn, Frank Ocean and Ash will all play with the 'Mylo Xyloto' band from May to September across the continent.

Robyn and Rita Ora will play on most of the band's UK dates on the tour, which run from May 29 at Coventry's Ricoh Stadium until June 10 at Manchester's City of Manchester Stadium, with three shows at London's Emirates Stadium set for June 1, 2 and 4. The June 1 show will be the only UK show to feature support from Marina And The Diamonds and Ash.

Odd Future member Frank Ocean will join Marina and the Diamonds on Coldplay's August and September dates, starting in Copenhagen on August 28 and finishing up in Hanover on September 22.

Last month Lana Del Rey performed her 2011 single 'Video Games' on American Idol. The prerecorded performance saw Del Rey singing in front of screens showing the single's DIY video and she was backed by a piano and a string section. In contrast to the extremely negative reaction she received when she made her live US TV debut earlier this year on Saturday Night Live, the crowd cheered enthusiastically at the end of the song.
