Abstract: I present our latest studies on the spot evolution, X-ray emission, and chromospheric emission in the CoRoT-2 exoplanetary system. In 2008, the CoRoT space mission discovered the transits of the hot Jupiter CoRoT-2b orbiting a highly active, young star, which has remained among the youngest and most active planet host-stars known to date. The extraordinary properties of the host star, CoRoT-2A, and its planet have made the system a major target for follow-up studies and a potential milestone object to understand young planetary systems.
