In case you were in any way unsure, Coldplay have now officially hit the big time. They will make a cameo appearance in an upcoming episode of The Simpsons.

When Homer wins the lottery, Coldplay perform a private show for him and Bart, one which is interrupted because Bart needs to take a trip to the john. Chris Martin will play himself in the episode, after having been slated by rival TV show Family Guy (He's on the list of people the Family Guy production team don't like... a lot).

The upcoming series was also feature an appearance from the late Eartha Kitt, recorded shortly before her death on Christmas Day of last year.

Michael Jackson, Ringo, George and Paul of The Beatles, Aerosmith and Johnny Cash are among the musical legends to have leant their voices to the hit adult comedy series in the past.
