For those of us who have not been able to get Coldplay tickets to their Singapore show in 2017, fret not because the band has announced that they've got new music coming out soon.

No other information about the upcoming EP has been released, other than it being called Kaleidoscope. On another note, there could be another chance for fans to get their hands on the tickets to Coldplay's show in Singapore next year.

According to The Straits Times, the British band has been made aware of how tickets were being illegally resold at much higher prices. "Even the band saw what happened and said, 'Michael, we have to do something,'" said Michael Roche, managing director at event organiser Live Nation Lushington.

Some 40,000 tickets are said to have been sold. The organiser may release additional tickets if and when it finalises "layout and logistic issues". An online fan petition requesting for a second show date in Singapore also came to the attention of Live Nation Lushington and Coldplay's management.

"It's the start of the tour so it's difficult to make a decision that quickly," Michael said. "We're looking at everything so let's just see what comes up in the next two days." He added that Coldplay insisted that the ticket prices were moved down – it was previously higher than the SGD78 to SGD298 range.

There is hope yet! Stay tuned to Live Nation Lushington's Facebook and Twitter accounts for more updates.
