Washington, November 18 : Coldplay's vocalist Chris Martin has revealed the reason why their band is the biggest hit in the world right now - U2 and Green Day are on vacation.
The leading man of the Brit rock band revealed the band's crowning place would soon be taken once U2 and Green Day were set to return with their new albums in 2009.
"The reason we're the biggest band in the world at the moment is because the others are on holiday. That's how you get your breaks," Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
"While U2 and Green Day are away, we've gotten to make the most of it," he added.
Coldplay achieved worldwide fame with their hit singles, such as 'Yellow', 'The Scientist', 'Speed of Sound', 'Fix You', 'Viva la Vida' and the Grammy Award-winning 'Clocks'.
