Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has confirmed that the band will not make any new music after 2025. Martin’s announcement came on BBC Radio 2 this Wednesday in a preview of his Christmas show with Jo Whiley premiering today, December 23rd, at 7 p.m. BT.

“Our last proper record will come out in 2025, and after that I think we will only tour,” he explained.

“And maybe we’ll do some collaborative things but the Coldplay catalog, as it were, finishes then.”

Though the quotes seemed pretty concrete, Whiley appeared on DJ Zoe Ball‘s breakfast show on Thursday morning, telling the host that Martin is “disarmingly honest,” however, she is “never quite sure if he’s joking or being deadly serious.”

With that said, Martin made similar comments to NME earlier this year, following the release of Coldplay’s ninth album, Music Of The Spheres. That album, in addition to the eight previous albums since 2000, charted at #1 upon release.

“We’re going to make 12 albums,” he told NME‘s Thomas Smith back on October 15th. “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 don’t think [that we’ll make 12 albums],” Martin continued. “I know that’s what we’ll do in terms of studio albums.”
