Investigating galaxy evolution with future telescopes: predictions for JWST, Euclid and SPICA

Forthcoming space missions such as JWST, Euclid and SPICA will shed light on different key phases of galaxy evolution. Euclid will provide an unprecedented view on the Cosmic Noon, whereas JWST will explore galaxies up to the Cosmic Dawn. The future ESA M5 mission SPICA will allow to unveil the most dusty obscured processes in the Universe at Cosmic Noon and beyond. These three missions together are therefore precious to have a complete overview of galaxy formation and evolution at different cosmic epochs. However, in order to fully understand the challenges and exploit the opportunities of each mission, a careful planning of the observing strategies is mandatory. In this talk I will briefly present a series of predictions for these three space missions, including a) the derivation of high-z galaxy properties from JWST photometric data, b) the use of colour selections to separate star-forming and quiescent galaxies in the Euclid fields, c)the use of DEUS (the Dusty evolving Universe Simulation) to simulate SPICA observations.
