Coldplay to Take Year Off

Coldplay star Chris Martin has announced he is taking a year off – because he's thinks people "need a rest" from him and his band.

The Yellow singer, who married pregnant Hollywood star Gwyneth Paltrow earlier this month, has confirmed that Coldplay will not be releasing a new album until 2005 – but he admits to feeling paranoid the follow-up record might flop after the massive success of their first two LPs Parachutes and A Rush of Blood to the Head.

He says, "I want time off because I've had a mad year.

"I think people need a rest from Coldplay. There's a real pressure on us now, too. We've become obsessed with trying to deliver something amazing.

"I hope people aren't sick of us. We loved touring the US but we're still not that big in America.

"I'm always worried it could end tomorrow. There's no guarantee people are not going to get fed up with us."
