Coldplay may never release another album - or at least not an album as we know it.

After seven hugely successful records, Chris Martin has cast doubt on any further releases in a traditional album format.

The band hit number one in the UK and number two in the US with 'A Head Full Of Dreams' in December 2015.

"I'd be surprised if there was another conventional Coldplay album," says the Coldplay frontman in a new interview.

"I just feel like we're right where we're supposed to be right now.

"I feel like this is a closing chapter of something. I stand by that I'm afraid."

Chris confirmed that there are no plans for the 2016 Glastonbury headliners to call time on their career, but suggested he sees the band's seven albums as a complete body of work.

"I don't think we'd split up as a band so hopefully we'll try to work out something to do at some point," he tells Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 radio show.

"But also part of me right now just feels like - yeah seven albums, that's great and they form a kind of circle and they all make sense to me now and I feel really proud of them."

He also confirms the rest of the band share his feelings on their future.

Newsbeat asked Coldplay's record label Parlophone for a statement but they were unable to confirm how many more albums Coldplay are contractually obliged to release.
