Coldplay to appear on The Simpsons

Coldplay will reportedly make a cameo appearance on "The Simpsons" this season, the show's 21st. The band will appear as themselves in an episode where Homer wins the lottery and hires the band to perform for Bart. One of the first musicians to appear on "The Simpsons was Michael Jackson, who starred, under the alias of John Jay Smith, s a mental patient named Leon Kompowsky whose convinced he is Michael Jackson. Jackson also had a hand in penning two songs that featured on The Simpsons, "Do the Bartman" and "Happy Birthday, Lisa." (On the Sunday following Jackson's death, The Simpsons reaired the "Bartman" video, and followed that with Jackson's Kompowsky episode the following week.)

Green Day played a large role in The Simpsons Movie, performing the show's iconic theme song and ultimately getting killed after playing a concert that kick-started the film's garbage-fueled plot line. The show has also featured appearances by three Beatles: Ringo Starr, George Harrison (in the Homer's Barbershop Quartet episode) and Paul McCartney, who along with his wife Linda taught Lisa about the wonders of being a vegetarian.

Episodes have also featured U2, Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Who, R.E.M., Phish, Sting, the Ramones, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, Elvis Costello, Tom Petty, Blink-182, David Byrne, the White Stripes, Aerosmith as endorsers of "Flaming Moe's" and Johnny Cash as a Guatemalan Insanity Pepper-induced coyote that talks to a hallucinating Homer. But perhaps the most memorable music-related episode of The Simpsons was "Homerpalooza," which featured appearances by Smashing Pumpkins, Sonic Youth, Cypress Hill and Peter Frampton.
