Coldplay to stop making music as a band in 2025

BoomRadioNG | December 24, 2021
Coldplay will stop recording music as a band in 2025, frontman Chris Martin has revealed.  Martin made the announcement on BBC Radio 2 on Wednesday, in a clip trailing ahead to his Christmas Show with Jo Whiley on the same channel on Thursday evening.
“Our last proper record will come out in 2025, and after that I think we will only tour,” he said.
“And maybe we’ll do some collaborative things but the Coldplay catalogue, as it were, finishes then.”
Whiley told fellow DJ Zoe Ball on her breakfast show that while Martin is “disarmingly honest” in interviews, she is also “never quite sure if he’s joking or being deadly serious”.

However on this occasion, his latest comments are consistent with what he said around the release of his band’s ninth studio album, Music Of The Spheres, which went straight to number one earlier this year.
Martin told The NME in October they intended to make 12 albums [three more] and then stop. But his latest chat with Whiley is apparently the first time he has ever put a date on it.
He also told Absolute Radio he envisioned his band going forward as a touring act “in the way that the [Rolling] 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,” he noted.
