Coldplay want to make their next album their "masterpiece", frontman Chris Martin has revealed.

The hit band - singer Chris, Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland and Will Champion - are currently writing and recording their follow-up to 2008 album Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends.

Chris told NME magazine: "We still don't think we've delivered our masterpiece, so we're still trying to do it. As long as we feel like that and we're hungry... that's all that matters."

The chart-toppers, who have been working with producers Brian Eno and Marcus Dravs, have a huge amount of material for their next offering - their fifth studio album - which they are trying to slim down.

New songs include Princess Of China and Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall.

Chris told the new issue of the music mag: "The worst mistake we could make, when we're the most Marmite-y of bands, would be to make a super-long thing."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Beware of spending beyond your means. Sticking to a budget will help you survive the festive season relatively unscathed. It will be easier than you think to let your grip on the purse strings slip especially as the big day draws near. Let Christmas be about loving, sharing and giving. Spend quality time preparing food, making decorations and playing games together. If you haven't sent all your cards or round robin emails give some thought about what you will be sharing with others this year.More
