Coldplay Album Not Expected in 2010

Coldplay will not release their fifth album, which will follow up 2008's Viva La Vida, this year. The band, however, remains hard at work on the project.
A Coldplay fan site reported that Gwyneth Paltrow's husband and baby daddy Chris Martin and his bandmates announced at a fan meet and greet in London that they "have still a lot of work to finish" before releasing a new album. "Chris [Martin] said that although they are close to finishing lots of songs, they have not actually finished anything at all yet... and he said there'd be no chance of the album coming out for Christmas," a source told the site.
That's okay, though. It will give Coldplay fans something to look forward to for 2011.
Former manager Phil Harvey also confirmed the news, and said that the gap between the release of a new album and a subsequent tour would be "slightly longer" this time around. Tom Petty said it best: the waiting is the hardest part.
