    Q. My dearest Oracle, Would you complete this line from the LRLRL version of Fix You: 500 meters from the ___, and ________. Thank you, it has been puzzling me!

    The Oracle replies:

    I will indeed. Chris sings "Well high up above or down below. 500 metres from the band at a Coldplay show".

    Q. Dear Oracle, When Coldplay played at Wembley in September I noticed a globe on top of a box on the stage (sort of behind Guy). If the parachutes globes were all in storage what is this globe and what was it's purpose? Lottie

    The Oracle replies:

    That wasn't a globe as they were indeed all in storage. The original globe was auctioned off for Kids Company and raised a whopping £8,230.

    Q. Hi Oracle! How come it was stated in the album booklet of Viva la Vida album: "Paintings by Eugene Delacroix" though what I read in Wikipedia was: the painting used in the album cover art was by Frida Kahlo?

    The Oracle replies:

    No, the album name was taken from a Kahlo painting but the actual cover was Liberty Leading the People, a painting by Eugene Delacroix.

    Q. Hi Oracle, I was wondering if you could recommend some new bands/ artists for me to listen to? Something similar to Coldplay, The Killers, Keane, Snow Patrol. Thanks in advance!

    The Oracle replies:

    Ok so today's delights are: Animal Kingdom, The Drums, The XX, Jonsi, Bon Iver and finally Midlake. Some aren't as new as others but still may be new to you; they should keep you going for while or at least until the next Oracle recommends spot...
