The development of the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT) allows for a more in-depth analysis of exoplanets. We explore the Proxima Centauri system as a potential target for the  E-ELT. Our results show that the instrument would allow us to resolve the separation of the star and planet, thus making it possible to conduct spectral analysis on the atmosphere of the planet.
