The prestigious awards show will be broadcast live from New York’s Madison Square Garden on the CBS network.

As previously reported, Coldplay play the same venue on June 13, as well as LA’s Hollywood Bowl on May 31, their biggest US gigs to date.

The band’s new single, ‘Clocks’, is released in the UK on March 24.
