And, according to guitarist Jonny Buckland, it will be 'The Scientist'...

COLDPLAY plan to release ‘THE SCIENTIST’ as the second single from ‘A RUSH OF BLOOD TO THE HEAD’, according to guitarist JON BUCKLAND.

The group are currently on tour in the US in support of their forthcoming second album, which is due for release in the UK on August 26.

Speaking to Billboard following the band’s stellar show at the New York Bowery Ballroom, where singer Chris Martin covered Oasis‘ ‘Songbird’ in front of the Gallagher brothers, Buckland confirmed that the track, a ballad, will be the next release.

It is currently unclear when the single will see a release, but the group are set to tour UK arenas in October, making November likely.

Coldplay remain in the US until August 20, and have announced a larger tour for later in the year.
