Looks like Chris Martin's ready to work on Apple and Moses' college fund.

He and his Coldplay pals just announced the first batch of dates for their world tour in support of their upcoming fourth studio album, Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends, which hits stores June 17.

After two free shows, London's Brixton Academy on June 16 and New York's Madison Square Garden on June 23, the easy-rocking Brits will kick off the paying portion of Viva La Vida on June 29 in Philly and target mainly arenas, along with the odd stadium and festival.

After the initial North American dates wrap Aug. 4 in Chicago, the band will jet to Japan for gigs in Osaka and Tokyo on Aug. 9 and 10. The second North American leg launches Oct. 20 in Montreal and ends Nov. 22 in Salt Lake City.
