Coldplay announce double release
Coldplay are due to release a new EP in December

Coldplay have announced plans to release a new EP and album.

Chris Martin said the band are planning two further releases including the full-length follow up to Viva La Vida, by the end of 2009.

He told BBC 6 Music: "We're going to put an EP out at Christmas called Prospects March and we're going to release an album next December to end the decade."

The band played a one-off show at the BBC Radio Theatre at the weekend.

New material

Martin also said that the EP is recorded but they are still to work on their next album.

The singer also joked his band might disappear from the public eye after the release of their fifth LP.

He added: "And then we’re gonna be ‘Whooosh! Where’ve they gone?', just like [The Usual Suspects' mythical film villain] Keyser Soze."

The band will embark on a UK tour later this year visiting London, Manchester and Glasgow.

They are currently offering a free new song, Death Will Never Conquer, available to download from their website.

Coldplay have also been nominated for the best special effects award for Violet Hill at this year's MTV VMA awards.

Russell Brand will host the event which is due to be held at LA's Paramount Pictures Studios on 7 September.
