    Q. Hello oh mighty Oracle! My question regards the song X & Y. I was looking for the song on YouTube and clicked the first link when I searched. The lyrics went something like this "X & Y sun, trees, earth & sky", or something along those lines. A few weeks later, I bought the X&Y album, to discover the song I 1st heard was not X&Y! I was wondering if that song was/is a Coldplay song, and if so, what is it called? Thank you so much!

    The Oracle replies:

    Ah yes, an understandable mistake given the mention of X&Y in the opening line. The song was written during that album's sessions but ended up as a b-side to Fix You; it's The World Turned Upside Down.

    Q. Hi Oracle, Too cold in England? I love Will's voice in Death Will Never Conquer. He is very talented! Tell me, what is the possibility of Will Champion singing on the next album? I know, there's nothing wrong with Chris. He's absolutely fantastic. =) Thanks! Nathalie

    The Oracle replies:

    I would say that as with Viva all four members will be singing but I can't see anyone other than Chris taking lead vocals but hey, who knows? Death Will Never Conquer was brilliant by both!

    Q. Hey best Oracle in the world!! Have you ever noticed, that 2 of the band members of Coldplay appear in the Christmas Lights lyrics? You don't have a real silvester in England do you? Happy new year!

    The Oracle replies:

    Ha ha! Well, given that will is a word as well as a name and I assume you're taking Chris from Christmas there's only Jonny that's never likely to appear as part of a lyric unless it's the use of the name itself as guy is also a word! No I hadn't noticed that 2 band members names are in the lyrics because er, they're technically not but I see your point. Silvester as in your New Year's Eve? No, Scotland has its Hogmanay but ours is just a plain and simple NYE. Happy new year to one and all, we're officially well in now.

    Q. I saw a DVD on a music store named: Coldplay - The early days... is it official ? Is it a new release ?

    The Oracle replies:

    No! There's only ever been the one official "Live 2003" DVD.

    Q. Hey Oracle! Hope everything is good with you! My question is about the ezines, I clicked on the link you posted and have been scrolling through them but what exactly are they? Were they something that the website crew made and put online? Or was it an actual print thing? Looking forward to an answer! I've been reading through them all and they are awesome!! Thanks for all the wonderful answers, this kind of effort to reach the fans is what make Coldplay such an awesome band! :D

    The Oracle replies:

    Thanks! The ezine was a monthly, later every two months, newsletter not a physical periodical; it was emailed to the mailing list and later archived on the website. Basically it was a mix of news and interviews about Coldplay with exclusive photos and the occasional fan story. It certainly served a purpose at the time but came to the end of its shelf life when we replaced the old website with the shiny new one.
