The funk-pop singer, who scored a string of hits before taking a hiatus, will sing his new song, 24K Magic, at the EMAs, which will be broadcast live on Nov 6 from Rotterdam.
The network said that Mars was the first in a series of performers it would announce for the televised spectacle geared towards MTV’s international audience.
24K Magic is described as a party anthem with synthesisers and funk beats reminiscent of early Janet Jackson. It came out last week as the first single off Mars’ album of the same name that will come out on Nov 18.

Mars had been comparatively silent as he prepared his new album, but played the Super Bowl halftime show in February, and on Saturday, will appear on Saturday Night Live, both major draws on US television.
