Coldplay's Chris Martin Says New Songs Will Tackle Addiction and OCD

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin told the BBC that the band's forthcoming fifth album will consist of clear, consistent themes, instead of being a traditional concept album. That's a lot of "Cs."
According to Martin, the as-yet untitled effort will addresses of "love, addiction, OCD, escape and working for someone you don't like," as will be a "a thinly veiled account of what happens within the group." Wow, how's that for music as a therapy session? I wonder if Martin will address his wife Gwyneth Paltrow's battle with post-partum depression after their birth of their second child, son Moses. It seems like he is keeping it about work and not about family. But I guess only time will tell.
The new Coldplay album is due at the end of 2011.
Are you a Coldplay fan? Do you think Martin should duet with his wife, who has a budding music career with Country Strong and Glee?
