And if you thought that news was exciting enough, there is more to report. The band is apparently working on a DVD of backstage, onstage, and "stupid stuff" footage from their 'A Rush of Blood to the Head' tour.

Guy has been the man behind the camera, and said about the DVD, "We want to make it good, not do it for the sake of doing it. I know a lot of bands go, 'Oh, let's just do a DVD,' and get a film crew and they film it and record music and stick it out. I'd like to do something a bit more interesting than that."

In regards to the content of the DVD, Guy said "I take loads of stuff. I've got about 200 hours of making the last record (2000's debut LP 'Parachutes") as well. I don't film everything because it just gets boring after a while. You get the same things -- here's another dressing room, oh, another dressing room!"

Guy revealed that there is footage of Chris Martin sucking helium backstage at a recent US show, which allowed the Coldplay frontman to sing 'God Put A Smile Upon Your Face' like a chipmunk.

He plans to continue working on the project as the tour continues, so we probably won't see it available until late next year. No official release date has been set.
