British rock group Coldplay admit they have split up "six or seven" times while on their current UK tour
Coldplay have split up "six or seven" times while on their current tour.
When the British rock group - frontman Chris Martin, guitarist Jonny Buckland, bassist Guy Berryman and drummer Will Champion - perform badly they often argue and threaten to go their separate ways, but always end up apologising to each other.
Chris said: "We have split up on this tour. Every time we do, we get back together about 20 minutes later - we don't even have time to announce it! It's probably happened six or seven times.
"Each time we say, 'This is it! This is the last show!' But then you have a fun show and everyone shuts up."
The 31-year-old singer is usually the one who suggests the foursome break-up, because he doesn't take criticism well.
Chris - whose group have sold over 40 million albums worldwide - added to Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "To be honest, whenever we have any bad news, I always quit for about 10 minutes. I get depressed about something - a concert didn't go well or that person said something terrible. But then the rest of the band will say, 'It's OK, we'll carry on.' "
