Coldplay's 'End Of Decade Clearout Sale' will get underway on December 17th (this Thursday!) on eBay and will include items such as instruments, stage equipment, costumes from the 'Vida La Viva' tour and platinum discs. If you want a sneak preview to some of the items, Coldplay have posted a couple of pictures on Twitter as they sort out the items in their new studio (pictures are also after the jump). The photos include pedal boards, guitars, cases and a mountain of posters.
If you want to take part in an initiative created by Coldplayers to buy lottery tickets which will lead to bids for items then this is the place to be, otherwise you can continue your discussion on the clearout auctions at the Coldplay forum here onwards.

Coldplay recently announced that they will be holding the clearout with the proceeds going to charity. All items will be signed or a certificate of authenticity will be issued. The items being sold include costumes, platinum records, the globe from the front of their début album, guitars used to write a lot of early material, and various other instruments, equipment, and memorabilia. "We've accumulated a lot of guitars, keyboards, amps, posters, platinum discs and all sorts of nostalgia... Proceeds will go to Kids Company, an incredible charity that helps vulnerable children and young people in London," said the official website statement.
Cash raised from the sale, which runs until 5pm GMT on December 31, will go to Kids Company, which the group described on their website as "an incredible charity that helps vulnerable children and young people in London". A catalogue of all the lots up for auction will be released soon.
