Speaking to The Daily Star, singer Chris Martin said, "I`ve been writing songs and I`m so fired up about the band`s future. I`m fortunate to do what I do and no way do I want to stop.This three-year break idea only came about because I said at a gig in Australia that we might not be back there for three years. That`s probably true, but that`s just how a world tour works. No chance are we taking a three-year break."
