Martin vows to pack it all in at 33


Chris Martin has hinted that Coldplay will split by the end of 2009, after which time they will officially become old and pointless.

"I'm 31 now and I don't think that bands should keep going past 33," Martin told the Daily Express, confirming that people sometimes get the funniest of notions. "So, we're trying to pack in as much as possible. Up until the end of next year, we'll just go for it in every sense.

"I don't believe in time off. We've still got most of our hair, we can still fit into our musical trousers and we've got to make the most of that."

Coldplay have a new EP, Prospekt's March, due on November 25th.
