Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has a guaranteed method of ensuring the British band's forthcoming third album is a hit - killing himself.

The CLOCKS singer - who is married to Gwyneth Paltrow and has a baby daughter, APPLE - has no intention of committing suicide but admits he'd at least know X+Y would sell millions of copies.

Martin says, "I think the best thing for everyone would be if I died.

"It's the only way to save this album. It would add that necessary amount of tragedy.

"(But) I wouldn't do that because I have a daughter. But commercially it would be a great idea to blow my head off."

X+Y is released in June (05).
