I will present several new results on linear and nonlinear waves on spherically symmetric spacetimes. I will focus on the behaviour of linear waves close to the horizon of spherically symmetric extremal black hole spacetimes, and on the behaviour of linear waves close to null infinity of general asymptotically flat and spherically symmetric spacetimes. I will also present applications of the aforementioned results to nonlinear problems in both settings.
