Coldplay Will Drop 3 More Albums Before Retiring in 2025

As confirmed by lead singer Chris Martin.

UPDATE (January 30, 2022): Coldplay‘s lead singer Chris Martin has confirmed that the beloved band will release three more albums before retiring. The news comes after the British rock music act — loved for their hits “Yellow,” “Fix You,” “Clocks” and so many more — announced that they would stop making music in 2025.

Martin shared in a recent interview with NME:

“We’re going to make 12 albums. Because it’s a lot to pour everything into making them. I love it and it’s amazing, but it’s very intense too. I feel like because I know that challenge is finite, making this music doesn’t feel difficult, it feels like, ‘This is what we’re supposed to be doing.’”

The musician also spoke on The Ellen Show, stating that the retirement “feels right.” He said: “I think we’ll keep touring and we’ll always be together as a group of musicians and friends. But I think the story of our albums ends then.” He also mentioned that the British band is interested in making a movie musical and added:

“I think, over time, we’ve learned…we’re so lucky that we get to just follow what feels right. And that’s what we’ve decided to do. That’s why our music changes a bit: sometimes we lose people and we get other people in. But, really, it’s become so fun since we just had the privilege of following what feels correct. Everybody should do it.”


ORIGINAL STORY (December 23, 2021): All good things must come to an end  — at least that’s how Coldplay feels. The British band only has about three years left before they plan to stop making new music.

“Our last proper record will come out in 2025, and after that, I think we will only tour,” frontman Chris Martin recently announced on BBC Radio 2’s The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show. “Maybe we’ll do some collaborative things but the Coldplay catalog, as it were, finishes then.”

That means that by then, the Coldplay catalog will consist of music recorded over the course of nearly 30 years as the band was formed in 1996. Since coming together, they’ve released various projects, including nine studio albums and six live albums. They’ve also embarked on several major tours, which fortunately will continue.

Luckily, it seems like fans will get to enjoy three more forthcoming albums from Coldplay. “We’re going to make 12 albums,” Martin told NME for its October cover story. “Because it’s a lot to pour everything into making them. I love it and it’s amazing, but it’s very intense too.”

Most recently, the group dropped Music of the Spheres this year. The LP is made up of 12 songs and includes features by Selena Gomez and BTS.

Coldplay’s full interview on The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show is set to air on Friday.
