Is Chris Martin pulling a Dave Grohl?

During a recent Coldplay show in Australia, Martin dropped numerous hints that his band might be taking some kind of hiatus.

“This is the last big show for three years or so,” the singer told the crowd last Wednesday, Billboard reports. “I don’t want to stop.” That, coupled with an earlier comment assuring the audience “that we’re going to play for you the best f—ing show in our life,” have people wondering if there might be a short break in order for the “Fix You” band.

Of course, none of that means the band will be leaving us completely. For one, we know for sure that drummer Will Champion will enter our televisions next year via HBO’s Game of Thrones. Moreover, the hints dropped throughout the show indicate a hiatus from playing live — leaving open the possibility that the band could spend some of the next few years writing and recording their next album. And, probably, getting some sleep.

Either way, thugh, Coldplay seems grateful. At one point during their visit Down Under, Martin told the crowd, “Thank you for the greatest job on earth.”
