    Q. At the blog Roadie #42, there is a picture of Chris reading, what is the title of the book?

    The Oracle replies:

    Well, Chris said on the radio this weekend that it could have been The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama but it certainly doesn’t look like it! There’s been a lot of interest over this particular photo as if it’s the only book Chris has ever read. There’s always a lot of book reading on tour so we can’t be sure, though I heard that particular one might be Oscar Wilde.

    Q. Ok is there really something or someone of Coldplay in the song by Nelly Furtado: All Good Things Come To An End?

    The Oracle replies:

    This is another collaboration that hit trouble when it came to being released. Chris was heavily involved in the writing, performance and recording of this song. Again a version was leaked onto the internet but his vocals were removed from the official release.

    Q. During Yellow, in concert, there are big balloons, like in the next tour? (thanks for the show on BBC and thanks you, Oracle).

    The Oracle replies:

    The balloons appeared during the last tour and the band don’t tend to repeat any effects so you won’t be seeing those again. There are other visual delights on this tour but if you loved the big yellow balloons during Yellow, you can see plenty of photos and videos of them online.

    Q. How much you guys know about latin american culture? and why don’t you visit machu picchu in Peru?

    The Oracle replies:

    Collectively they know quite a bit. Also the Oracle has been to Machu Picchu twice.

    Q. Is there any place I can obtain the version of song Dry Your Eyes with Chris and the Roots? I have not been able to find it anywhere.

    The Oracle replies:

    Chris sang the chorus on the original demo of Dry Your Eyes by The Streets not The Roots. There was an unofficial copy floating around on the internet at the time, which was also played on a U.S radio station. As it hadn’t been given the green light it caused controversy when it was revealed that this version was to be ditched and wasn’t intended for public delectation.

    Q. What are those coloured streamers on Chris’ fingers? (kind of material..?)

    The Oracle replies:

    This isn’t relevant any longer as Chris only wore the coloured tape (electrical tape) during the Twisted Logic tour. It tied in with the X&Y Baudot code of coloured blocks on the album’s cover.

    Q. Is it true Coldplay are going to do a duet with Kylie Minogue???

    The Oracle replies:

    This song has already been recorded months ago. It hasn’t been played out anywhere yet nor has it been announced officially where you’re going to get to hear it. Sit tight and all will be revealed… eventually.
