In this work, we formulate a non-commutative (NC) extension of AdS-CFT correspondence that is manifested in the modification of behavior of a holographic superconductor. The noncommutativity is introduced in the model through the NC corrected AdS charged black hole metric developed by Nicolini, Smailagic and Spallucci. First of all we discuss thermodynamic properties of this black hole in Euclidean formalism. In particular, we compute trace of the boundary energy-momentum tensor which, as expected, is non-zero due to the NC scale introduced in the model. Our findings indicate that the non-commutative effects tend to work against the black hole hair formation. This, in turn, has an adverse effect on the holographic superconductor by making the superconducting phase more fragile. This is reflected in the reduced value of the critical magnetic field and critical temperature. Finally, we comment on a qualitative agreement between our (holographic superconductor) result and that obtained for a conventional superconductor in NC space in a purely condensed matter scenario. In both cases noncommutativity tends to oppose the superconducting phase.
