Coldplay front man Chris Martin says the band will call it quits before they get old and plans to split up at the end of 2009.
According to the Daily Express, Martin's decision was based on his view that bands should call it a day before they get too old -- saying he wanted to go out with a blast by keeping as busy as possible until 2009 ends.
"I'm 31 now and I don't think that bands should keep going past 33," he said. "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."
We assume that means we should expect some exciting things from the current kings of soft rock in the coming year. While we're not entirely sure what that will consist of, here's hoping it's something closer to the Coldplay we used to like as opposed to the Coldplay our mom's currently like.
