    It depends on whether you're a host or a guest and whether you're already at the party. If you've been invited, and want to know how many other guests will attend, use going. If you're one of multiple hosts, and want to know how many people have already RSVPed, you'd use coming. And if you're a guest who arrives early at a party and want to know how many more guests will probably arrive you would also use coming. – 1006a Oct 17 '17 at 14:33

    Heck, just see coming going of this site. I can't imagine none of these possible duplicates weren't suggested to you when you wrote your question. – AmE speaker Oct 17 '17 at 14:39
