Before you start parsing those themes for hidden meanings or hints into the psychology of the bandmembers, Martin has already admitted the disc is a "thinly veiled account of what happens within the group" (which presumably now makes it a not-veiled-at-all account). And if that all sounds a little too introspective, don't worry, the as-yet-untitled record apparently "also has a lot of uplifting stuff."
"It's supposed to be about life," Martin continued. "The good stuff and the bad stuff. Everything." Or, as drummer Will Champion put it, "the whole catastrophe."
He added, "Catastrophe just means something big and seismic but not necessarily bad. It's all about embracing the whole thing. Appreciating the good and bad and realising it's all part of life."
For all these ideas and thematic building blocks, however, one thing Coldplay's comeback won't be, according to the group, is a concept album. A release date for the Brian Eno-co-produced LP is yet to be set.
