We present spherically symmetric static solutions (a particlelike solution and a black-hole solution) of the Einstein-Yang-Mills system with a cosmological constant. Although their gravitational structures are locally similar to those of the Bartnik-McKinnon particles or the colored black holes, the asymptotic behavior becomes quite different because of the existence of a cosmological horizon. We also discuss their stability by means of a catastrophe theory as well as a linear perturbation analysis and find the number of unstable modes.
