Chris Martin has said he is proud of Coldplay's activism to raise awareness about free trade practices around the globe and support poor farmers in developing countries.
The singer, who celebrated his 30th birthday on a Mexican beach last week, is a spokesman for Oxfam's Make Trade Fair campaign, and Oxfam volunteers provide information on free trade and distribute petitions at its concerts.
Joining a long list of celebrities, Chris said he has hope for the future with less than two years left in US President George Bush's term.
"I think we're all excited, everyone in the world is excited about the American elections next year," he said. "Sometimes it's easy to give up all hope."
The singer was speaking before the final concert of a Latin American tour that took them to Chile, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico, where he also revealed the band will be heading back into the studio to record a new album.
