Help! Engine cuts off during driving

I was wondering if someone can tell me whats the problem here. Two nights ago I was driving back from work when the engine just turned off mid drive! I thought it was weird but soon as I pulled to the side of the road it seemed to start up fine. After that it done it few more times during drive and idle times. This morning I can't even get it to start.

When it swiches off it doesn't struggle or anything and the engine seems to be running smoothly at idle too.. it just turns off out of the blue.

Anyone?

I'd suspect the coil or the fuel pump.
