Coldplay have figured out what to do with the leftovers from their Viva La Vida sessions: Chris Martin says they'll release a new EP titled either Prospects March or Prospects Songs or "something like that" on December 26th. Talking on the BBC's 6 Music to host Steve Lamacq and R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe, Martin was responding to rumors that the band's sessions with Viva producer Brian Eno resulted in enough material for two albums. Martin says the EP will host the leftover songs, while Coldplay also hope to release an album of brand-new material by the end of 2009. "We're gonna have another record ready by November 2009 to end the decade," Martin said. As for the EP, Stipe indicated he preferred Prospects March; the disc is expected to house the song "Luna," Coldplay's collaboration with Kylie Minogue.
