Chris Martin says Coldplay will stop recording new music after 2025.

The British band have released nine studio albums since they formed back in 1996, but according to their frontman they only have plans to make ten in total.

Quizzed about their plans for the future, the frontman told the BBC: "Well I know I can tell you, our last proper record will come out in 2025 and after that I think we will only tour".

He added: "Maybe we’ll do some collaborative things, but the Coldplay catalogue, as it were, finishes then."
