    Q. HI ORACLE, I was in a video game/bookstore/random shop today and I bought a book called Coldplay: Look At The Stars. It's good so far, and the guy apparently met Chris and is associated with the music industry, so you'd think he'd be an expert, but the annoying thing is he always spells Will's name with one 'l' (Wil). Also he calls Politik, Politix. Everything else seems really accurate, but can you help me with all the errors and typos or something, Oracle! Plus, 'Will' is NOT a difficult name to spell! Really! Okay, THANK YOU!

    The Oracle replies:

    I can't help you with them because you already know that it's Will & Politik. I can tell you this though Emma, Phil O'Brien is a woman! She doesn't have any close association with the band and that possibly explains the errors. She's not the only one though; Martin Roach (Nobody Said It Was easy) got Chris's birthday wrong and even our own Matt (sorry Matt!) makes a mistake in Roadie (out soon) saying that the band played in Aberdeen on the first night of the A Rush Of Blood To The Head warm-up shows when it was in fact Edinburgh.

    Q. I am DYING to know, dearest Oracle, who the Table Tennis Champ of the Latin American Tour is?? Natasha or Chris (or was there a random underdog who blew them both out of the water)?? While I love Chris to pieces I'm a bit competitive myself so I'm pulling for the girl power and hope Natasha ran the tables :-) MUCHOS GRACIAS to the boys and crew for a killer finale in Monterrey - glad to know we were the loudest!

    The Oracle replies:

    The table tennis table saw many competitors come and go including Chris, Will, Phil, Chris's Dad & sister (the Martins are VERY competitive); Kelly (security), Dan (trainer), Dan (sound), Natasha, Charlotte (Bat for Lashes) and even I had a go. Chris likes to play to relax him before a show but don't be fooled into thinking he's not playing to win and win he did - over and over. Natasha was pretty good (as was Charlotte) but she didn't beat Chris. Don't get me wrong he got whipped a few times but overall Chris played the most and therefore is the tour ping-pong champion.

    Q. Did Guy go to see Ronaldo with Will and Jonny at Corinthians in Sao Paulo? There was a picture taken there during the visit where it is written that the one in the photo holding Corinthians shirt with Ronaldo was Guy, but I really doesn't think it was. This picture can be seen in many Brazilian magazines and internet sites...

    The Oracle replies:

    As you can see form this clip and photo Guy wasn't there. Phil went along as did Dan (trainer) who held up the shirt. It's a case of mistaken identity.

    Q. Hey almighty oracle! Has the ash cloud had any bearing on the LP5 recording at all? I remember seeing some pictures of Chris in NYC the week before the volcano erupted and was wondering if he'd managed to get back? Thanks! Jason

    The Oracle replies:

    Nope not yet Jason but soon hopefully; we miss him!

    Q. Dear Oracle, Why haven't these Coldplay fans figured out that Guy is using the photos for album purposes... like either for inspiration or for use in the album booklet? The "can't be returned" and the "not pics of your families" are giveaways...

    The Oracle replies:

    Last mention of the subject - it clearly says Guy's looking for photos for a personal art project so there's no point trying to speculate about the album folks as this is totally unrelated.

    Q. Dear Oracle, I don't know what to do. I've been in a relationship for more than a year now. I'm beginning to feel a little unhinged from the world. I've stopped seeing my friends since I find myself with my boyfriend most of the time. I feel like I've put so much of myself into this relationship that there's not much left of ME left when I'm alone. I hate this, I feel dependent and never in my life would I have seen myself this way before. I don't like it. I miss my friends, I miss my old self, but I love my boyfriend. What should I do?

    The Oracle replies:

    There may be people out there thinking that this is an easy situation to solve but actually it's incredibly hard but very common so don't lose hope. It's good that you are aware of the changes and want to do something about it; losing yourself to another person isn't always a healthy way to be in any relationship. I'm sure your friends would understand if you explain to them, as you did to me, that you miss them and want to see more of them. It's natural when you fall in love to want to spend every waking moment with that person but you're right to acknowledge that it can be at the expense of your friends and ultimately YOU. I suggest you gently tell you boyfriend that although you love him you want to get back a little of what has been lost over the past year. He may feel hurt or he may understand and he actually may feel slightly relieved as maybe he feels the same? Relationships, including friendships, are about giving and taking so make sure you are getting back and compare it to what you put in. It's not advisable to give of yourself so much that you're experiencing this loss of yourself. There is no reason at all that you can't have a good balance of boyfriend, friend and you time. Remember who you were before and how you were, focus on that to reclaim your independence. Remind yourself; that happy you was the girl he fell in love with. It's great to love and be loved but don't forget to love yourself.

    Q. Dear Oracle: I was reading about the old photos hunting and I have a lot of my family and my city when it was a little town (around 1920 and 1930), but I have them scanned on my laptop. Can I e-mail you those or Guy needs the photos on paper?

    The Oracle replies:

    Just to let everyone know as there's been a few people sending questions in about this; Anchorman has reported in detail that Guy's looking for original photographs - not copies - that cannot be returned. The piece does also state that Guy does NOT want any family/personal photos. Please only send in ones that fit the criteria. Another thing I was asked is if it's only open to people from the UK; that's the beauty of having such a global network of fans, we're going to get some amazing photos from all around the world and that's very exciting. We're not giving out any further details at this point though, so that will save me answering that one right now!
