There is a James Coulter served with the Royal Artillery and a Richard Coulter served with the 1st Life Guards who are listed in the Peninsula Medal Roll 1793-1814 at The National Archivist web site at http://www.nationalarchivist.com/ , no Charles Coulter though.

However, there are two pensioners service records at the UK National Archives:
WO 97/773/77 CHARLES COULTER Born TEMPLECARON, Donegal Served in 64th Foot Regiment Discharged aged 31 served 1810-1821

WO 97/746/128 CHARLES COULTOR alias CHARLES COULTER Born SCREEN, Sligo Served in 61st Foot Regiment Discharged aged 41 served 1826-1849

WO 97 = Royal Hospital Chelsea: Soldiers Service Documents
WO 97/773 = 64th Foot: Burr - Dav ; WO 97/746 = 61st Foot: Ada - Cur

See http://www.catalogue.nationalarchives.gov.uk/default.asp , and click on "search the catalogue", then enter name and dept code WO , leave dates blank.

To order a copy online from red menu bar select Business Services > reprographic > order form [blue text], when you get to the actual form just enter WO97/773 then in the text box enter "copy of all pages for WO 97/773/77 CHARLES COULTER Born TEMPLECARON, Donegal" or WO 97/746 and "copy of all pages for WO 97/746/128 CHARLES COULTOR alias CHARLES COULTER Born SCREEN, Sligo"
You can obtain an estimate for both at the same time [10 deductible from order]

Alternatively you can use a researcher from red menu bar select Getting Started > Independent Researchers > choose a research area; select Army - Genealogy etc , click find researchers select from list. I've had a quick look at those with web sites and most quote an hourly rate that varies considerably from 15 to 45 per hour, you should check them yourself but the only one I have found that details the services and what you get is Jonathan Collins at http://www.militaryresearchon.com/ , as your supplying a NA reference to him I doubt the National Archive will beat his prices, email him to confirm. Final choice must be yours though.

Neither regiment appear to have served at Waterloo.
