"I'm so fired up about the band's future."

Coldplay singer Chris Martin has revealed that he is already sketching out material for the band's sixth studio album.

Communication, as always, is the key. Coldplay recently played a show in Australia, with singer Chris Martin telling the crowd that the band planned to take a three year break. Almost immediately sparking extreme speculation, the frontman was forced to clarify his statements during an interview with the Daily Star.

Asked about the comments, Chris Martin explained that although Coldplay would take a break from touring they had no plans to stop working on fresh material. ''I've been writing songs and I'm so fired up about the band's future" he told the tabloid. ''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.''

Coldplay recently released new concert DVD 'Live 2012'. Featuring footage from the band's shows at Paris’s Stade de France, Montreal’s Bell Centre and the band’s triumphant Pyramid Stage headline performance at Glastonbury 2011 the package was matched by a number of bonus items.

Here's 'Paradise' live from Paris.
