Chris Martin battled the temptation to plagiarise others' work when writing tracks for the band's new album X&Y.
He found it difficult to generate original material but did find he now has the life experience to write better lyrics. Chris said: "The things that changed are, we have more things to sing about and more people to plagiarise.
"But the way we operate is still pretty similar: we go down one path at a canter then realise that really we want a bit more excitement than this - which might sound extraordinary, because I don't think people associate Coldplay with excitement necessarily - but, believe me, we could sound a lot more bland."
