The set is tentatively called A Head Full of Dreams, Martin said on BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe, celebrating the band's Ghost Stories track "Magic" being named the "hottest record of the year."

"It's our seventh thing, and the way we look at it, it's like the last Harry Potter book or something like that," Martin said. "Not to say that there might not be another thing one day, but this is the completion of something."
