Coldplay: “We’ll stop making music in 2025.”

Over the last decade, Chris Martin has speculated on the future of Coldplay. This week he spelled out exactly when they will stop making music as a band: 2025.

Speaking to the BBC, he said “Our last proper record will come out in 2025, and after that I think we will only tour. “And maybe we’ll do some collaborative things but the Coldplay catalogue, as it were, finishes then.”

Is he serious? Or just joking?

The answer might be found in an interview with The NME back in October when he said that Coldplay’s plan was to make twelve albums and then stop. That means three more before the end. Apparently, the long-term goal is to just tour on the basis of their big hits “in the way that the [Rolling] Stones do, it will be so cool if we can still be touring in our late 70s.”

Interesting career strategy, no?
