He wrote a message on Coldplay's official Twitter account that said: "Hello everyone, we're working on some new songs for next year.

"It's called the Kaleidoscope ep. We hope you're well, love cm #KaleidoscopeEP."

The rock band released a track called Kaleidoscope on their seventh studio album A Head Full Of Dreams, which was unveiled last year.

There had been rumours that the chart-topping album could be the band's last after Martin was quoted as saying it was "like the last Harry Potter book or something like that".
