Support on the tour, which kicks off in Costa Rica in March, will come from H.E.R. and London Grammar.

The band were originally due to play three shows at London’s Wembley Stadium and one gig at Glasgow’s Hampden Park in August.

However, demand has been so high that Coldplay have added a fifth date to the Wembley shows, as well as second date in Glasgow.

A fourth London date was added on 19 August, and now a fifth date has been added for 20 August.

Coldplay will also play Glasgow's Hampden Park for a second time on 24 August.

Priority tickets for the London and Glasgow shows go to fans who have pre-ordered Music Of The Spheres from the band’s official webstore.

What Coldplay have said about the tour

Ahead of the COP26 summit, the band’s ambition is to make their concerts more environmentally friendly and to have one of the greenest tours in history.

The band wrote on Twitter: “Playing live and finding connection with people is ultimately why we exist as a band.

“We’ve been planning this tour for years, and we’re super excited to play songs from across our whole time together.

“At the same time, we’re very conscious that the planet is facing a climate crisis.

“So we’ve spent the last two years consulting with environmental experts to make this tour as sustainable as possible, and, just as importantly, to harness the tour’s potential to push things forward.

“We won’t get everything right, but we’re committed to doing everything we can and sharing what we learn.

“It’s a work in progress and we’re really grateful for the help we’ve had so far.

“If you’d like to come to a show and sing with us, we’re so excited to see you.”

How will the tour be more sustainable?

Chris Martin first revealed in 2019 that they would not launch a globe-trotting tour for their previous album Everyday Life because of environmental concerns.

This time their global tour will be supported by a “show battery”, supplied by BMW, which will be recharged using solar power and generators powered by hydrotreated vegetable oil.

Fans will also be able to generate electricity for the concert through a kinetic stadium floor and power bikes.

Martin said: “We’re proud to partner with BMW to create the world’s first tourable, rechargeable show battery – which will allow us to power our concerts almost entirely from clean, renewable energy.”

These alternatives will replace the usual diesel and petrol generators, which will reduce the carbon footprint of the concerts.

BMW spokesman Jens Thiemer said: “A common awareness of sustainability has led during recent years to an intensive, creative co-creation process between BMW and Coldplay.

“The campaign song Higher Power, marking the launch of our all-electric models BMW iX and BMW i4, as well as Coldplay’s performance at BMW’s virtual world of JOYTOPIA during the IAA Mobility, were the first major highlights of our successful co-operation.

“With the use of second-life batteries from BMW i3 vehicles we are now helping Coldplay’s world tour become even more sustainable.”

Coldplay release their ninth album, Music Of The Spheres, on Friday (15 October).
