Coldplay Break?

Published: 2006-02-21
Coldplay fans got a bit of a scare at the Brit Awards last week when Chris Martin made comments inferring that the band wouldn't be around in the near future.

According to E! Online while accepting the award for Best British Single Martin said, "You won't see us at one of these for many, many years," and added "We won't see you for a long time. I mean it. It's going to be years before we have the chance to say this again."

The comments made Coldplay fans draw conclusions that the band may be heading on an indefinite hiatus or even calling it quits for good.

The next day a spokesperson from Coldplay's record label EMI issued a statement indicating that the band was not breaking up. And though Coldplay will be going on hiatus soon that it would just be a run of the mill break and that fans shouldn't worry about a split.

The band is presently on their North American tour and will stay on the road until July when they wrap up their tour in Japan.

Since the announcement fans have been speculating the reason for Coldplay's break some saying that it was because of the unbalanced majority of attention Martin receives compared to the rest of his bandmates and others conclude it's because Martin wants to spend more time with his expectant wife Gwyneth Paltrow and their young daughter Apple.

Maybe with millions of albums sold and stadium shows all over the world, the band is just tired.
