    Q. Hi Oracle, Why does Phil Harvey play in the back and not on stage? Thanks, Angela

    The Oracle replies:

    Phil doesn't actually play in the band on or off the stage. He's referred to as the 5th member but not in terms of being a musician. Matt McGinn is the only person outside of the band to have done that during live shows. For example he played guitar offstage on Yellow during the Twisted Logic tour.

    Q. Only a true Oracle can answer this question: When Parachutes was originally released, track 7 (titled Parachutes) was an epic song (at least 5 minutes) and my favorite on the album. The other day I was listening to my friends version of the CD, and his track 7 (also titled Parachutes) which surprisingly was a completely different song- it was a 46 second long and very slow. Where has my favorite Coldplay song gone?

    The Oracle replies:

    I think you're dreaming Steve. Parachutes has always been a very short song in fact, not only is there not a longer version recorded, there isn't a longer version in existence.

    Q. Hey Oracle, wanted to get your thought on what to send to a friend who will be in isolation for radiation treatment.. I have thought of some things but what ideas do you have.. I appreciate your help, whatever goes in will have to be disposed of and no visitors are allowed so it will have to go in at the start of treatment, thanks in advance any ideas are appreciated, Laurie

    The Oracle replies:

    Maybe a book of poetry or short stories as your friend may feel tired so something they can dip in and out of may be appropriate. Or you could make a compilation cd/tape of their favourite songs, or yours, so they can feel connected to you while in isolation. Other than that a photograph of a really happy positive memory may cheer her up. Hope that helps.
