How will the Champions League quarter-final and semi-final draws work?

The draw will set the ties for the quarter-finals and semi-finals, and a draw will also be held to determine the 'home' team for the final, for procedural reasons.  

The draws are open, so there is no seeding or country protection. Any team can be drawn against any other team.

The first team drawn plays its first match at home, against the second team drawn.
