Having been off the road all year, Coldplay will unveil a batch of new songs during a Latin American tour in February and March. The trek will begin with a Feb. 14-16 stand in Santiago, Chile, and will run through a March 3 show in Mexico City.

"Having received such a phenomenal response to their last Latin American trip in 2003, [the band] personally chose to return to the region," reads a post on Coldplay's Web site, which also lists details for ticket onsales.

The new material is earmarked for Coldplay's fourth studio album, which is tipped for a late 2007 release via Capitol. It will be the follow-up to 2005's "X&Y," which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200.

Here are Coldplay's tour dates:

Feb. 14-16: Santiago, Chile (Espacio Riesco)
Feb. 20-22: Buonos Aires (Gran Rex)
Feb. 26-28: Sao Paulo (Via)
March 3: Mexico City (National Auditorium)
