“It`s a great honour for us to be part of the celebrations for the Paralympic Games and it should be a great moment when the bandstands of Great Britain strike up in unison,” the Daily Express quoted the frontman of Coldplay, Chris Martin, as saying.
Pop star Rihanna is also expected to perform in the ceremony later in the evening, the paper said.
London 2012 chairman Lord Coe had said that he was "delighted" that Coldplay had signed up to help them celebrate the "spectacular" event.
