Coldplay will not release music after 2025. They could also stop making music after 2025.

Jo Whiley, Jo Whiley's radio host, announced the band's plans.

Coldplay will not release music after 2025. They could also stop making music after 2025.

So. Coldplay, farewell. Or at the very least, soon. Frontman Chris Martin has shocked-slash-delighted the world depending on your viewpoint with the announcement on Jo Whiley's BBC Two radio show that the band will release no more new music after 2025, which may not quite rival Cher for the longest musical goodbye but does seem to drag it out rather.

Martin stated to Whiley, "Well, I know I can assure you that our last record will be out in 2025, and then, I believe we will only tour."

"Maybe we'll collaborate, but the Coldplay catalog, as it were finishes then."

This raises the question about what they have left up their double-layered, long-short sleeves. If their album Music of the Spheres, which is grandly titled, is any indication then I don't think the world can handle it.

It was a brazenly commercialized bucket of bombast featuring Selena Gomez (the fifth most popular person on Instagram) as well as the K-Pop megastars BTS. They were so desperate for attention that they even premiered Higher Power (really), by beaming it into space station. It was so outrageous. They were just so outlandish.

They may have accidentally handed over the responsibility of stadium pop-rock to Ed Sheeran years before they intended. Or perhaps they just decided they couldn't be bothered. That's true.

It's not nearly as much fun to play around with this stuff as it is to yell it at an inexplicably adoring audience. This comes a month after Sheeran only played five nights at the same venue.
