This paper is concerned with the planar magnetohydrodynamicswith initial data whose behaviors at far fields $x\rightarrow \pm\infty$ are different. Motivated by the relationship between planar magnetohydrodynamics and Navier-Stokes, we can prove that the solutions to the planar magnetohydrodynamics tend time-asymptotically to a viscous contact wave which is constructed from a contact discontinuity solution of the Riemann problemon Euler system. This result is proved by the method of elementary energy estimates.
