Back in 2014, Chris Martin said that Coldplay’s most recent not-so-good album A Head Full Of Dreams would be the band’s final album. He also compared it to Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, implying the band wouldn’t be around for long afterward. It would appear that Martin was kinda-sorta lying about that. As NME points out, Martin told Beats 1’s Zane Lowe that Coldplay aren’t actually breaking up anytime soon … just that maybe they’ll only make EPs?
I’d be surprised if there was another conventional Coldplay album. I just feel like we’re right where we’re supposed to be right now. I meant what I said to you a couple of years ago I feel like this is a closing chapter of something. I stand by that I’m afraid.
I don’t think we’d split up as a band so hopefully we’ll try to work out something to do at some point. But also part of me right now just feels like yeah seven albums, that’s great and they form a kind of circle and they all make sense to me now and I feel really proud of them.
