Coldplay are 'like Manchester United'

London - Chris Martin thinks Coldplay are the Manchester United soccer team of music because they heavily criticised even though they are hugely successful.

Chris - who is married to actress Gwyneth Paltrow - insisted he is no longer bothered by the band's critics and chooses to focus on the positive.

He told the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper: "You can very easily become infected by the minority negative opinion.

"I was talking to my dad about Manchester United - the most popular football team in the world - and when they show up at West Ham they get booed. I was thinking, 'Well, it's the same for us'."

'Sleep with The Corrs'

Chris said crowds singing their tracks such as Paradise put the negative aspects in perspective.

He said: "When everybody is singing Paradise at the moment it makes me feel so alive and happy. There comes a point where you just accept that whatever you do, someone will like or hate it, so it's extremely liberating.

"We are incredibly blessed that we are - 12 years in - allowed to make whatever we want to make. That's extraordinary. Even in the film world you can't do that. Only a few people can do that.''

Chris joked: "Basically, we set out with two goals: To either make it big in America or sleep with the sisters from The Corrs."

He added: "I'm always looking at Kanye West and he's moving so fast, doing such amazing work that I want to keep chasing him for a while. I don't want to give up just yet."
