The UK band's lead singer Chris Martin says that the band's last proper record will come out in 2025 as fans express disappointment at the news.
Hugely successful British band Coldplay will stop recording in 2025, but will continue touring.
Frontman Chris Martin broke the news on Thursday in a BBC radio interview.
"Our last proper record will come out in 2025, and after that I think we will only tour," said Martin.
He added that the rock band, which formed in 1996, might continue to do "collaborative things" but "the Coldplay catalogue, as it were, finishes then".
It comes after Martin told music magazine NME in October that the band intended to stop after 12 albums.
"It's a lot to pour everything into making them," he said, referring to studio albums.
"I love it, and it's amazing, but it's very intense too."

Chart topping albums
Coldplay, known for hits such as "Yellow" and "Clocks", released their first studio album "Parachutes" in 2000.
They've since recorded eight more, including the most recent "Music of the Spheres," released in October, which it is taking on a world tour next year.
Coldplay's most recent album "Music of the Spheres" shot straight to number one and was the UK's fastest selling this year, according to the Official Charts Company.
All the band's previous studio albums have also topped the charts.
Martin, 44, was previously married to Hollywood actress turned wellness guru Gwyneth Paltrow while the couple finalised their "conscious uncoupling" in 2016.
Fans expressed disappointment at the news.
Susan Haddon Leopold commented on a Facebook fan page that she hoped the band never stop creating new, awesome music."
Another fan, Aaron Johnson from Manchester, wrote: "That's heartbreaking".
However, Martin had also told Absolute Radio he would like if the band could continue touring in their late 70s "in the way that the [Rolling] Stones do."
"That will be wonderful if anybody wants to come," he said.
Last month the band performed alongside BTS at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles.
