Coldplay Album To Be The Last?

COLDPLAY frontman CHRIS MARTIN is afraid that their upcoming album X+Y may be their last.

Coldplay's debut album PARACHUTES sold 5 million copies, and 2003's follow-up A RUSH OF BLOOD TO THE HEAD sold a staggering 10 million copies worldwide, making them one of the most successful British acts of the last 20 years.

With their third disc hitting stores in June (05), the YELLOW singer fears that if it's another huge hit, the stress of success may drive the band apart.

Martin, 28, says "Traditionally, if anyone else agrees that it's the best thing ever, then we have to stop.

"It'd be nice to just leave it as the trilogy, y'know? It's be nice to just have the three records, and then go and do work experience in TIMBALAND's studio."

Martin, married to OSCAR winner GWYNETH PALTROW, also fears tabloid exposure will overshadow Coldplay's releases and the band's success will make their music bland.

I am a 40 year old father of two. I have been a Coldplay fan since their first album but nothing could have prepared me for march 5 2006 when I saw them live in Orlando Fla. Yes news that X&Y might be their last album is infinately sad for us but let me tell you that in many ways Coldplay's live performance has changed my life. I went there with my wife of 15 years. She wasn't nearly the fan I was going in but that soon changed once Chris and the gang took the stage. We were on our feet for the entire concert and there were moments when I closed my eyes and got so lost in the music and the moment that all of my life's concerns dissapeard. My financial problems, my marriage problems, health concerns etc. Coldplay's live music performance trancended and transported me away from all my worries for a short time and left an indelible mark on my soul. Sounds overly dramatic doesn't it? Well, I hope your life never takes you to the dark and dismal places mine has but if it ever does, you can always take a break from it, go see Coldplay live, get lost in the music and in the subsequent understanding that we are all connected, infinate parts of a greater whole and through that knowledge of belonging we can make it through, we can persavere and emerge on the other side better for it and whole."All that noise and all that sound, all those places I got found"....
