The unidentified source told The Mail on Sunday in the wake of infidelity rumors surrounding Martin, Paltrow is scheduled to work on a musical in the United States and will follow that up with work on a movie being filmed in Germany.
"Gwyneth will be spending a lot of time away to focus on her new movies," the source told the British newspaper.
"She goes to Berlin in the spring to make 'The Danish Girl.' Before that, she will star in a small-budget independent musical set in America's deep south. She loves singing so it was a role she couldn't turn down."
The Mail said Martin, lead singer of the band Coldplay, has been romantically linked to actress Kate Bosworth by recent reports.
In addition to her two new films, Paltrow is scheduled to take part in upcoming promotional events as part of her role in the film "Iron Man 2."
