Replacing or altering figure icons violates Matlab license agreement.

replace FIGUREHANDLE with your figure handle, test with gcf
replace PATH with the path, name and extension of the icon for example

As Bruno says, that would be a breach of the MathWorks license agreement. Specific details here:

Siddarth, thanks for pointing out the reference to license agreement

Jan Simon, thanks. I think this is too rigid, especially when someone has got commercial license for Matlab/Compiler and sells own software.

This answer is pretty old and I've bumped into it a few times, so for the sake of new users,
here's how its done. (BTW, I'm assuming a UI figure).
fig = uifigure("WindowStyle","alwaysontop");
fig.Position = [500 500 1000 445];
pathToMLAPP = fileparts(mfilename('fullpath'));
fig.Icon = fullfile(pathToMLAPP, 'my_icon.png');
