Chris Martin of Coldplay tells Radio 1’s Steve Lamacq that the group has a lot to prove with its follow-up to Parachutes. “As far as we are concerned we’ve got everything to prove,” he said. “We are given this one chance and we will never get this sort of chance again. We will either descend into cocaine and mid-level obscurity or we will get good. We have been trying to get good. We’ve been working all the time, having singing lessons, Jonny’s learnt about 15 new ways of playing guitar. So we have not been wanting to waste our opportunity.” Audio at bbc.co.uk/radio1 has since been removed.
