Coldplay have cancelled their South American tour.

The band were due to play a number of dates starting next week in Chile, but the shows have now been pulled "due to circumstances beyond our control" say the 'Mylo Xyloto' group. The dates were already postponed from last year.

Coldplay posted a message to fans at their website, coldplay.com, it read:

Dear friends in Latin America, We're sad to say that, due to circumstances beyond our control, we're unable to reschedule the postponed 'Mylo Xyloto' tour dates in 2013. For this we're very sorry. It may seem small consolation now but we'll definitely have your corner of the world at the front of our minds when the time comes to do it all again. Thank you for your incredible patience and support.


Late last year, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin revealed that he had begun work on their next album.

Martin told the Daily Star: ''I've been writing songs and I'm so fired up about the band's future."

He added: ''I'm fortunate to do what I do and no way do I want to stop."

Coldplay have promised fans that the title of the album will be easier to pronounce than 2011's 'Mylo Xyloto'. Chris Martin told Australian radio station 2dayfm: "The next one we're releasing is much easier to pronounce."
