Chris Martin has told NME.com Coldplay's appearances at V Festival mark the end of an era for the band. The group rolled out the anthems for the first of their two final UK shows this year at the V Festival in Chelmsford this evening. Speaking exclusively to NME.com as they came off stage, Chris Martin said that despite getting out of the public eye for the next few months, they plan to start work on new material.

Asked if tomorrow's gig in Stafford marked the end of an era for the band, Chris joked: "Yeah, I think so. It's going to be the death of soft rock tomorrow night!"

During the gig, the band played two new, unannounced songs, as well as covering Louis Armstrong's 'What A Wonderful World' as the final song of the encore.

"One of them's shit, one of them's good," Chris said of the new songs. "We're going to dump the shit one but keep the good one. I'm sure you'll say both of them are shit!"

Coldplay played:

  • Politik
  • One I Love
  • Trouble

  • Shiver

  • Everything's Not Lost
