Chris Martin compares Coldplay to U2.

The Coldplay frontman, whose new album Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends is released this week, looks to the Irish rockers as a measure of success.

He said: "U2 once said they were reapplying for the job as the best band in the world. On Viva La Vida we feel like we’re just reapplying to be a band again.

"I always view our albums in terms of U2 albums. Viva La Vida is our Unforgettable Fire in that it’s less straightforward, more oblique. It’s about sex and death and love and fear and travel and illness. There’s light and there’s dark."
