The band have announced four stadium shows in the area to take place in November 2012.
Coldplay frontman Chris Martin said in a statement: "We can't wait to get back to Australia this November. It's such a special place for us.
"These venues are pretty huge, the Aussie crowds are always incredible and we'll be bringing everything we've got. It's going to be big."
Coldplay will perform at the Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand on November 10, followed by a show at Melbourne's Etihad Stadium on November 13.
They then play the Allianz Stadium in Sydney on November 17 and the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on November 21. Support will be provided by The Temper Trap and The Pierces.

Martin recently revealed that he has had the ear condition tinnitus for a decade, saying that he wishes he had thought about taking care of his hearing earlier in his career.
