    Q. Oracle, is it true that 5th band member Phil moved to Australia for a few years?

    The Oracle replies:

    It is indeed true. He left the UK in 2002 and eventually made it to Australia where he studied Psychology. I have it on good authority that he became a fan of Mrs. Ashmead's home cooking whilst there.

    Q. Dear Oracle, I have been trying to work this out for months now, and I had the idea to ask you. What is the Rush of Blood to the head Album artwork based on? Thanks in Advance, Jay

    The Oracle replies:

    Watch out for Anchorman's look at AROBTTH in a future installment of his Cover Artwork series...

    Q. Greetings Oracle. What did you think of Suarez's handball against Ghana?

    The Oracle replies:

    I don't refer to it as handball; it was no accident nor "hand of god" but a full on save! He did what any other player would have done to stop the ball from going in and as it goes it was the right decision because it got his team through albeit via penalties. I'm sure he won't regret that decision and quite honestly I would have done the same. I loved the match and the 31st minute was the most exciting I've seen all tournament.

    Q. Hi Oracle. Can you please tell me why the guys have a hand on their VLV jackets?? Does it have a meaning for them? Please answer... Thank you and Love for you all from Argentina!

    The Oracle replies:

    It's only Will that has a hand on his jacket as it's the same as his tattoo - of his daughter's hand print.

    Q. Dear Oracle, You recently answered a question about the new Twilight movie, saying that you've read the books, my question is... are you a woman? because I've yet to meet a man who has ever even picked up one of those books.

    The Oracle replies:

    I am not alone. The first book was a gift and I confess I would never have picked it up otherwise but it felt rude not to read it. Confession time... I actually haven't read the final installment as I really did not enjoy the first three!

    Q. What's the story?

    The Oracle replies:

    Morning Glory?

    Q. Hey all knowing Oracle. Chris was photographed yesterday with strapping on his thumb. Is it broken? How did he do it? Thanks, Griff

    The Oracle replies:

    It's not broken but he did sustain an injury from a paintballing incident. I'm not joking either... but you should see the other guy ;)

    Q. Is it Chris' handwriting on the cover of the Roadie book? It surely looks like Mr. Martin's penmanship!

    The Oracle replies:

    Er, quite simply, no. It's not a Coldplay book; it's about Matt's life with them so it's not endorsed specifically therefore other than the foreword there's no handwritten stuff or otherwise...

    Q. Hey Oracle, What is Hunting High and Low? Colin

    The Oracle replies:

    As you've written it that's a title of a song by A-ha that Coldplay have been known to cover live. Generally speaking I'm sure you know that it means searching absolutely everywhere...
