Coldplay want to take time off from touring to find a way in which their shows can become more "environmentally beneficial".
Although Coldplay are releasing their new double album Everyday Life tomorrow (22 November), Chris Martin told BBC, "We're not touring this album."
Expanding on the reasoning behind not wanting to tour the record, Martin revealed, "We're taking time over the next year or two, to work out how our tour can not only be sustainable [but] how can it be actively beneficial."
Going into more detail about their environmental objectives, Martin said, "Our next tour will be the best possible version of a tour like that environmentally. We would be disappointed if it's not carbon neutral. The hardest thing is the flying side of things. But, for example, our dream is to have a show with no single use plastic, to have it largely solar powered."
Yesterday (20 November), Coldplay shared two more Everyday Life tracks, "Champion Of The World" and "Daddy". "Champion Of The World" includes a songwriting credit for the late Scott Hutchison of Frightened Rabbit.
On 25 November, Coldplay will play a one-off show at London's Natural History Museum, with all proceeds being donated to ClientEarth, an "environmental charity which uses the power of the law to protect the planet and its people."
