Coldplay are selling their muddy boots for charity.

The 'Viva la Vida' hitmakers are hoping to raise thousands of pounds for the Kids Company charity by selling off a series of items including the footwear they donned at the 2000 Glastonbury festival, frontman Chris Martin's first ever guitar and the four iconic jackets which the band made themselves and wore throughout their 'Viva La Vida' world tour.

Among other clothing, artwork and memorabilia being sold on auction website eBay is guitarist Jonny Buckland's battered cap which he was seen wearing every day on their world tour. Chris' guitar, which has 'Christopher AJ Martin' inscribed on it in tippex and was used to write many of Coldplay's early songs, is expected to raise the most money,

Coldplay are also auctioning a collection of signed lithographs, available on a first-come, first-served basis, which cost only £10 each and will appear on the 'Kids Company' eBay page at random times during the duration of the sale. Coldplay's 'End of the Decade Clearout Sale' opens today (18.12.09) and runs until December 31.
