Coldplay frontman Chris Martin is preparing to retire from music - because he believes rock stars should call it quits before reaching their mid-30s.
Martin is adamant the Yellow hitmakers will step away from the limelight sometime in the next few years - to ensure they are on top of their game when they leave the music industry.
But he insists that until he and his bandmates take their final bow, they will continue to put out as many albums as possible.
He says, "I'm 31 now and I don't think that bands should keep going past 33.
"I don't believe in time off. We've still got most of our hair, we can still fit into our musical trousers and we've got to make the most of that."
