Upgrading T4i lenses, but confused about filters

Hi there. New to the forums here.

I have had my T4i for about 4 years now and have been using some basic lenses:

  • Canon 18-55mm EF-S IS II
  • Canon EF-S 55-250mm F4-5.6 IS STM

I take lots a general photos, but the stuff that gets me really excited are landscapes, night photos, and travel photos. This summer we are heading to Yellowstone and the Badlands, so I am really looking forward to some great shots and maybe even some astrophotography.

I have finally decided to upgrade my lenses with the addition of the following:

  • Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM
  • Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 Art DC HSM
  • Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM

I think these are good choices for my interests (comments welcomed).

What I am really struggling with is figuring our what filters to use with these lenses (I've never used filters before). I think I would want a UV filter for the 50mm, a polarizing filter for Sigma, and maybe a graduated neutral density filter for the 10-18mm.  But to be honest, I am totally confused about what I should get.  Any recommendations on the types of filters and maybe some specific models would be greatly appreciated.
