Coldplay are set to get the Glee treatment.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the band have given the cult US show permission to use their entire catalogue.

The show's writer-producer Ryan Murphy approached the band after enjoying huge success with a Madonna episode, but said he initially got a "rejection".

Ryan said the band called a week ago and said "you can have our catalogue".

He said Bryan Adams had rejected requests to use the Canadian soft rock singer's music.

"At the beginning a lot of people didn't know what we were and asked to see pages (in advance), but I refused because I didn't want to set a precedent of them having any involvement," Ryan added.
