Yo you could have at least referenced my original twitter post. but ill forgive you. There is more to it. Yes Oxfam is one of the partnering charities. But also Dave Holmes statement (after Chris told the media they wouldn't tour until it was environmentally beneficial) is also insightful:
 

- As Chris has said, we have become increasingly mindful of our touring’s impact on the planet. We started making significant plans to improve this scenario while we were still on the road in 2017. For the last couple of years, we’ve been meeting with environmental organizations and charities with the ultimate goal of making our touring footprint carbon neutral. These plans factor in the footprint generated by our fans’ travel requirements—which we hope to reduce through subsidized public transport and ride-sharing schemes. We also plan to invest in environmental projects that go well beyond carbon offsetting. - Pitchfork, 2019. 


FFTF seems to be all about preserving heritage sites and making sure they are fit for the future. Note Coldplay played their show in heritage sites in Jordan and in London & arguably a heritage site with their show in LA.

Beyond the fact that the "_____ For The Future" sufix was the most likely answer (in my case, my theory was always "Flight For The Future" with a NASA Mars-centric concept for the next LP9 release, syncing the release with the mission milestone), I start to realize that there is no relation between the two pages in the EL Album Booklet.

FTFF2024 is, with no doubt, the "Fit for The Future", and the moment where our dear Coldplay will have an offer for touring with no environment impact. Nothing more. 

And the "Coldplay Coming Soon" with "Music of The Spheres" is another history, with no link at all with FTFF2024 (except eventually the touring factor of course). 

There will be a release quite soon (the posts in Instagram on specific positions for VLV songs are far to be coincidences), but the FTFF2024 was always a separated concept.

I’m starting to think that the “bugged” music section is intentional, if it was a malfunction they would’ve fix it by now. I don’t think their team is simply ignoring this bug

Pardon my ignorance but which “bugged” music section are you referring to?

I agree, if it was an error they would have already solved it. maybe we'll have some more clue after the grammys

Well, I guess FFTF2024 is probably unrelated to Music of the Spheres. It was just a little easter egg for a new environmental and charitable initiative that the band is probably involved with. And it goes along with their commitment to make future touring more environmentally friendly.

They might not even know about it yet. Their website design is maintained by a design agency called Rabbit Hole and they probably aren't aware of this.

Great find! this seems like the most likely explanation for the FFTF2024 in the booklet. Maybe it's an action plan from this initiative setting a goal for 2024, or maybe Coldplay have committed to make their tours environmentally beneficial (i.e. actively improving the environmental situation, rather than just having no effect) by 2024.

Yeah I agree that the FFTF2024 is a completely separate thing from MOTS. As mentioned, I think it's Coldplay's goal to have an environment friendly tour by 2024. Very interesting! I still think we are getting a project of new/reworked material sometime this year.

Now that a Coldplay-connected person is posting these things, a new read: The 0:57 of Death and All His Friends mentions "So come over, just be patient and don't worry" (nothing more appropiate with all our anxiety for LP9!). 

And 1,36 for Violet Hill, could be just the day of the year when we will have something: Day 136 --> 16/May. I don't know, but it seems a reasonable (closed) date for something.

Indeed! I'm also wondering if Coldplay ever read all of this fan speculation (maybe they're laughing at us right now?:classic_biggrin:), as Phil once said on Twitter something like he's been a fan of Coldplaying since the beginning....

I know Debs Wild has an account here. The very same Debs Wild who discovered the band in 1998, was once The Oracle on Coldplay's website, and has been friends with the band in some capacity since the very beginning. I'm not gonna ping her with a mention (her username is just her first and last name if you want to look it up), but she pops in from time to time and was last active less than a month ago.

Maybe she peeks at our outrageous speculation from time to time and mentions it to the band. 😂

Anyways, I have my doubts that Angel Lopez posting songs from Viva is very significant. Maybe it's just a hint that he's working on LP9 and nothing more. The album could sound nothing like Viva and 1:36 could be a coincidence. DAAHF could be a coincidence, too. No matter what, I just think it's cool that he actually listens to Coldplay instead of just working with them and never having anything to do with them again.

In fact, he has been a fan for a long time:

Didn't know Debs was active on the forum still. I do remember her leaving at beginning of the MX Era because of the drama. People were outraged at the Rihanna colab news lol.

So Debs was running The Oracle..... Finally, I didn't know that either.

With all due respect, I think too much is being read into the exact times Angel Lopez screenshot the songs and the respective lyrics or numbers etc.

Not everything is a secret message.

I for one thing he just listened to and shared some songs he liked.

Yeah I think we are too desperate for news haha. Same goes with the reels on Instagram. I don't think those mean anything other than them trying to post/get engagement.

Coldplay has just announced their new T-shirt collection with One Tree Planted. What surprised me the most was the song playing on the video, they chose Talk... So, since the band has an aversion with X&Y (other than Fix You), do you think there's a reason to choose that particular song?

Perhaps there were lyrics in it that related in some way or another to One Tree Planted... or perhaps - and this is the most likely option - they just liked the song.

Heres what I've noticed. They released Litho's of every album, and now have released cool Shirts/Socks for each album. If Music of the Spheres is about the connection between all bodies, then this could be a nod to the album. Just another reason we know that we've got something coming.

Rock in Rio was officially postponed to September 2022. The president and creator of the event also said that by the end of this semester it should reveal more attractions (perhaps Coldplay?)

Not surprising, but at least this allows Coldplay to play the festival if it doesn't conflict with anything they've already scheduled. I have a hunch that MOTS will come out by the end of 2021 and 2022 is going to be filled with touring, as long as it's safe to attract such crowds by that point.

This definitely fits with the Fit For The Future campaign that was mentioned a couple pages ago. It's environmentalism. I have a feeling they are going to do a lot of promoting for environmental causes in the next few years, similar to how they promoted fair trade (to the point where Chris would draw the Make Trade Fair equal sign on his hand and decorate his piano with it) back in the 2000s.

I find it intriguing that they included a snippet of Talk in the announcement on Instagram. But I really can't imagine them having any special reason to. Maybe it was just chosen by somebody in the band's social media team and they just went with it.
