London: Coldplay frontman Chris Martin says he and the rest of the bandmates are inspired by children`s movie ‘Kung Fu Panda 2’.

The `Fix You` hitmaker, who has children Apple, seven, and Moses, six, with wife Gwyneth Paltrow, said his band Coldplay has learned some important life lessons from the film.

"The baddie sends an evil force right into Po`s head, but the lesson he learns is how to turn that force around and send it back twice as strong. It is a great way to deal with negativity. We are interested in turning negatives into
positives.

"In life it`s good to learn how to take negatives and turn them into positives. Every time something like that happens to us, we just flip it around. It is a very good film," he said.

The band`s world tour kicks off in Canada later this month, and Marin said he is thankful Coldplay is still going strong 16 years after forming at university.

"We are so happy to have our job at this point. If someone doesn`t like us we don`t care. We care about the people who do like us."
