Coldplay will stop making records after their 12th album.

The band are releasing their ninth studio album, Music of the Spheres, this week, and frontman Chris Martin admitted the ‘Yellow’ hitmakers will only make another three records afterwards before quitting the recording studio for good.

He said: “I think that in a few albums’ time we will finish making albums.

“This is not a joke, this is true, I think after 12 that will be the end of our catalogue.”

However, frontman Chris wouldn’t want Coldplay to retire completely, as the 44-year-old singer is keen for the band – also made up of Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman, and Will Champion – to play live shows into their 70s.

He said: “But I think we will always want to play live together.

“So, I think in the way that the Stones do, it will be so cool if we can still be touring in our late 70s.

“That will be wonderful, if anybody wants to come.”

Chris also admitted it was a “real joy” to team up with K-pop sensation BTS recently on track ‘My Universe’.

Speaking to Absolute Radio’s Andy Bush, he added: “It’s just been a real joy to do that song with them from start to finish.

“It was such a weird idea, and it was so wrong on paper in a way, but it allowed us to bring out our inner boyband and them to bring out their inner old man band and collaborate in a middle-aged band.”

It comes as the band and Amazon Music announced that fans around the world will be able to tune in to an exclusive performance of Music Of The Spheres live from Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle.

Fans will be able to watch the show live beginning 1pm AEDT / 3pm NZDT on Saturday 23 October, or a repeat of the performance at 4am AEDT / 6am NZDT on Sunday 24 October.

The performance will be the band’s first arena show in nearly five years, and the first chance for fans to hear their brand-new music in person, just one week after the album is released.

Viewers worldwide will have the chance to tune in live to experience the concert as it happens on the Amazon Music app, the Amazon Music Twitch channel, and on Prime Video for all customers with or without a Prime Membership.

The show will also mark the grand opening of Climate Pledge Arena in the heart of Seattle.
