Coldplay Launches Career-Spanning eBay Charity Auction

British rock band Coldplay is cleaning house, and for a good cause. The band has decided to auction many of the instruments and memorabilia collected over the past ten years on eBay in an End of Decade Clearout Sale. All proceeds will benefit Kids Company, a London-based charity that helps vulnerable children and young people.

The comprehensive auction catalog of items up for grabs is a whopping 52 pages long, and includes the band's trademark globe, costumes, amps, rare posters, guitars and platinum records. All items will be signed by the band's four members, or accompanied by a signed certificate of authenticity.

The auction will take place over four days, with items divided up by album discography, starting with the band's earliest work today, December 18. All of the auctions will last for ten days, concluding on December 31.

Kids Company reaches out to children affected by trauma by providing emotional and educational support in a safe and nurturing environment, and has provided services to 14,000 children in London.
