It's not all bad news for  Chris Martin . Though the  Coldplay  frontman is in the midst of a public "conscious uncoupling" from wife  Gwyneth Paltrow , as he puts it, his band has just tied  U2  for number-one hits on  Billboard 's alternative charts.

Coldplay's new single, "Magic," just landed at the top of the chart, giving the band its eleventh number-one. This ties U2, who snagged their eleventh number-one earlier this year when "Invisible" topped the alt charts.

Earlier this week, British tabloid  The Daily Star  cited a record label source as saying Coldplay would follow up this year's album,  Ghost Stories , with another release later this year. The source implied that the second album would be meatier and also receive more tour support.

Ghost Stories  hits retail and digital outlets on May 19. An exclusive deluxe edition being offered by Target will include three bonus tracks.
