Coldplay to split
16:30 16 February 2006
Coldplay are splitting up.
Frontman Chris Martin - who is married to actress Gwyneth Paltrow - announced the news as he collected two awards at the Brits last night (15.02.06).
But the singer hinted the band - who won Best Single for 'Speed of Sound' and Best Album for 'X and Y' - would reunite in the future.
He told the crowd: "This means so much to us, especially now.
"It's going to be a few years before you see us again.
"People are fed up with us - and so are we."
Friends of the star have claimed he wants to spend more time with pregnant Gwyneth and their daughter, Apple.
Coldplay wowed the crowd with a spectacular performance of 'Square One' at the star-studded bash.
One guest said: "His antics topped an absolutely storming set by Coldplay. It was probably one of the best seen at the event in a long time. The crowd absolutely loved it."
