We compute the planar three-loop Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) corrections to the helicity amplitudes involving a vector boson V=Z,W±, two quarks and a gluon. These amplitudes are relevant to vector-boson-plus-jet production at hadron colliders and other precision QCD observables. The planar corrections encompass the leading colour factors N3, N2Nf, NNf2 and Nf3. We provide the finite remainders of the independent helicity amplitudes in terms of multiple polylogarithms, continued to all kinematic regions and in a form which is compact and lends itself to efficient numerical evaluation. The presented amplitude respects the conjectured symbol-adjacency constraints for amplitudes with three massless and one massive leg.
