Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin's hint that the band was considering to call it quits after receiving two British awards on Wednesday, turned out to be a rumour. The gesture initiated a frenzy of media reports speculating about reasons for the split. Some went on to the extent of saying they would split for good.

However, a representative for Coldplay's EMI record label denied reports of the band splitting, but were heading for a standard rest period after wrapping their world tour.

"Coldplay are not quitting. They are on the road until July, when their 16-month X&Y world tour ends in Japan. They will then continue working on new material," the representative said.

"You won't see us at one of these for many, many years," Martin had said, as he accepted the award for Best British Single. "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."

"We got to go. People are fed up with us, and so are we," EOnline! had quoted him as saying.

Coldplay won the award for best British album award for their X&Y while Speed of Sound was named best song.

Coldplay have been together since 1997 and have recorded three big albums - Parachutes, A Rush Of Blood To The Head and X and Y.
