After being gifted surprises like their hit BTS and Selena Gomez collaborations, Coldplay fans apparently have a whole lot more to look forward to as singer Chris Martin explains to Audacy host Jayn about the band's exciting plans.

LISTEN NOW: Coldplay's Chris Martin talks with Jayn

"We have three more albums, and they each have their own thing going on," Martin says, speaking of what is currently in Coldplay's immediate orbit before the band officially closes the recorded chapter of their career at a predetermined time somewhere in 2025.

"One of them is a musical we want to do as a movie," Chris adds, revealing one reason he may have smirked when that hard 2025 date was brought up. "I imagine that will probably not be finished by then," he laughs. "So, we won't put that music out until that film is done. But we have three more projects and there are some surprises of course."

Ever humble, so let's not take his word as Gospel, but Chris says "I don't think we'll ever be able to match the BTS surprise," remembering the success of the bands' 2021 "My Universe" collaboration. "That was surprising even for us," he admits. "The journey from the first time it was mentioned -- I was just like 'how could that ever work?' -- to the song itself arriving and me thinking, 'that could be for BTS' -- to now it feeling like the most natural collaboration in the world. It's an amazing lesson for myself in keeping an open mind all the time, because you just never know what life or music is gonna throw you."
