In a post to their website, Coldplay has announced that they'll be joining Jay for a one night performance this December 31.


"This will be the second time in two years that Coldplay has celebrated [a] new year with long-term friend and collaborator Jay-Z, the band having shared the bill with him at a Las Vegas concert in 2010," a rep for the band wrote in a statement. "More recently, Jay-Z performed onstage with Coldplay at the spectacular London 2012 Paralympic Games Closing Ceremony."


In addition to their show with Jay on New Year's Eve, Coldplay will headline another show at Barclays December 30. Tickets for the shows will be available via Live Nation on November 17.
