Coldplay are set to disband in 2025, despite calls for the band to stop making music today, Chris Martin has confirmed.
After more than 20 years, and releasing nine studio albums, the group’s frontman confirmed that the band will not make records after that year.
During a special BBC Radio 2 Christmas show with presenter Jo Whiley, Martin said: "Our last proper record will come out at the end of 2025.
"And I think after that we’ll only tour.
"And maybe we’ll do some sort of collaborative things, but the Coldplay catalogue, as it were, finishes there."
Despite being one of the best-selling artists of all time, with over 100 million records sold worldwide, many responded to today’s news with exasperation, feeling that three years is too long to wait.
One user on social media greeted the news with: “Can we do anything to get them to stop even sooner than that?
The band has been together for more than 20 years and are one of the best-selling artists of all time, with over 100 million records sold worldwide
While another said it was a “great early Christmas present for the world.”
The group have enjoyed enormous worldwide commercial success over the past two decades, along with seven Grammy Awards and nine Brits.
However, the group have become maligned throughout popular culture in the UK, often from music and comedy shows like Never Mind the Buzzcocks.
The news that the group will no longer make music comes after Chris Martin told NME in October that the band intend to make three more albums, bringing their total to 12.
One fan said on social media: “Coldplay please never stop making music, you are my entire life.”
