Coldplay have denied speculation they will perform in Israel and Palestine, telling fans they are just visiting to listen and learn.

Frontman Chris Martin shared a selfie of the group on their travels with a statement denying any plans to stage a concert or sign a new contract.

The post, on the band's Twitter and Instagram accounts on Friday, read: "Hi everyone.

"We are in Israel and Palestine to listen and learn and that's all; there is no concert scheduled, we are just having an interesting and enlightening trip to learn about the area.

"The articles suggesting that we have a signed contract are incorrect.

"Thankyou so much, love, cm."

The trip comes barely two days after Coldplay delighted fans with a performance at Wednesday's Brit Awards in collaboration with The Chainsmokers.

Their Something Just Like This track was officially released on the same day.

Coldplay will take their A Head Full Of Dreams tour across the globe next month, starting with Singapore on March 31.
