Is Chris Martin hinting a Coldplay break up? When he spoke at the Brit Awards the other night while accepting the best single and best album, he made it seem like this could be the end of the road for the group. People reports:

As he accepted one of the band's two awards at the Brit Awards in London, Martin said, "You won't see us at one of these for many, many years. We won't see you for a long time. I mean it. It's going to be years before we have the chance to say this again."

He prompted even more speculation when, later in the evening, he said: "We got to go. People are fed up with us, and so are we."

We hope it's not over. Their London rep said the band would be on hiatus for a standard amount of time one usually takes in between producing albums but who knows. It's hard to have lasting power like U2. Chris has a second baby on the way and maybe he just wants to hang out with the kids.
