Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has revealed the band is planning to disband after releasing a 12th album.

The musician told in an interview he felt 12 albums would be the stopping point for Coldplay, who are releasing their 9th studio album, Music of the Spheres, on Friday October 15th.

Speaking to Andy Bush on Absolute Radio with fellow Coldplay star Jonny Buckland, Martin said: “I think that in a few albums time we will finish making albums.

“This is not a joke, this is true, I think after 12 that will be the end of our catalogue, but I think we will always want to play live together.

“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.”

The Coldplay musicians were on the show to discuss Music of the Spheres.

They also spoke about their gig at London’s O2 Shepherds Bush Empire, which was held in celebration of its new album, on Tuesday October 12th in front of just 2,000 fans.

The frontman also talked about the band’s collaboration with K-pop sensation BTS for Coldplay’s new track My Universe.

Chris said the group were a delight to work with.

He said: “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.”

In the interview Chris also admitted he hasn’t quite caught up with new South Korean series ‘Squid Game’ on Netflix, which has been receiving rave reviews.

He said he is worried the show might be a little too scary for him.

The singer said: “I’m good with thrillers, but less good with horror.”

Chris said: “It’s weird with me and horror, there is some of it I can really handle no problem and then others like IT etc. that’s what I can’t handle.”
