A Brits 'source' told The Sun: "Coldplay are really looking forward to performing Princess of China with Rihanna already. Brits bosses set their sights on getting them on stage together early doors."
The 'Mylo Xyloto' track was rumoured to have a single release earlier this year, which the band later denied.
Noel Gallagher, Kasabian and Brits house singer Adele will also do numbers at the event.
The Brit Awards 2012 take place at The O2 on February 21.
