Coldplay have confirmed plans to sell off three original pieces of the artwork featured on their latest album 'Mylo Xyloto' in a new charity auction.

The sale of the three original images, created by British artist Paris with the help of the band when recording the album, will go toward raising money for the Kids Company Charity, who help vulnerable inner-city children.

Speaking about his decision to help with the sale of the art, which will be on display at Proud Galleries in Camden, London, Chris Martin said: "Kids Company is a phenomenal organisation that is very close to our hearts. While we were making the last album we did quite a lot of painting with our friend Paris... We built a special wall in our studio and sprayed it, wrote on it and threw things at it until it eventually became the artwork for 'Mylo Xyloto'. This exhibition will be the first time that the wall has appeared in public."

The 'Mylo Xyloto' auction with all three of the 7m x 2.5m images available to be purchased by members of the public either at the gallery in Camden or via Paris' website

Meanwhile, Coldplay recently attended the premierethe premiere of new Stone Roses film Spike Island, which Chris Martin personally invested in.
