Coldplay Plan to Retire After 12 Albums

Chris Martin reveals when he and bandmates are going to quit music for good, claiming that their twelfth studio album will mark 'the end of [their] catalogue.'

AceShowbiz - Coldplay will stop making records after their 12th album.

The band are releasing their ninth studio album, "Music of the Spheres", this week (end17Oct21) and, according to frontman Chris Martin, they'll only make another three records before quitting the studio for good.

"I think that in a few albums time we will finish making albums," he said. "This is not a joke, this is true, I think after 12 that will be the end of our catalogue."

However, the singer wouldn't want Coldplay to retire completely, as he's keen for the band - also made up of Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion - to play live shows into their 70s.

"But I think we will always want to play live together," he continued. "So, I think in the way that the Stones do, it will be so cool if we can still be touring in our late 70s."

"That will be wonderful, if anybody wants to come."

Chris also admitted it was a "real joy" to team up with K-pop sensation BTS recently on their joint smash "My Universe".

Speaking to Absolute Radio's Andy Bush, he added, "It's just been a real joy to do that song with them from start to finish. It was such a weird idea, and it was so wrong on paper in a way, but it allowed us to bring out our inner boyband and them to bring out their inner old man band and collaborate in a middle-aged band."

The group shot to fame following their debut album "Parachutes", which was released in July 2000.

Coldplay's full interview with Andy Bush is on Absolute Radio on Friday at 6.30 pm BST.
