The projwfc.x postprocessing program is all what you need. If things haven't benn changed 
much since last time I used it for such kind of study, you have to use an input file like 

     prefix= "CoatPtwire",
     outdir= "/local_scratch/sclauzer/tmp/",
     lsym= .FALSE.,
     filproj= "COatPtwire.proj",

using your values for prefix and filenames. In the  filproj file you should find, for each 
atomic state available in your system, the projection of the atomic states onto all KS 
states produced by the calculation, indexed by k-point and band (so that you can relate 
the KS eigenstates to the corresponding eigenvalue from the scf calculation output).
