We introduce a Siegel-Eisenstein series of degree 2 which generates a cohomological representation of Saito-Kurokawa type at the real place. We study its Fourier expansion in detail, which is based on an investigation of the confluent hypergeometric functions with spherical harmonic polynomials. We will also consider certain Mellin transforms of the Eisenstein series, which are twisted by cuspidal Maass wave forms, and show their holomorphic continuations to the whole plane.
