Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have separated after 10 years of marriage.

The celebrity couple announced their "conscious uncoupling" on Paltrow's website, Goop.

"It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate," the post read.

"We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate."

The 41-year-old American actress married the 37-year-old Coldplay lead singer in a secret ceremony at a California courthouse on December 5, 2003.
 
The couple asked for privacy for their children, Moses and Apple, and indicated they would "coparent".

"We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time.

"We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner."
