Chris Martin has revealed that Coldplay are set to take a break for three years.

Coldplay were performing live at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia on Wednesday, November 21 when Martin told the audience: "This is the last big show for three years or so. I don't want to stop," Billboard reports.

Meanwhile, Coldplay have said their next album title will be easier to pronounce than 2011's 'Mylo Xyloto' which caused a stir as many fans were confused by the title. They named the fifth studio effort after "two words that you couldn't even Google".

Speaking about the difficulty people had pronouncing the title, Chris Martin told Australian radio station 2dayfm: "The next one we're releasing is much easier to pronounce," but refused to give details about what the title might be.

Coldplay released their new concert film Live 2012 yesterday (November 19). The DVD, Blu-Ray and CD also features an interactive e-book, described as "an in-depth and interactive audio-visual companion piece to Live 2012," which features photographs, videos, Chris Martin's studio journal and more.
