    Q. Well Oracle, I've heard the song "Such a Rush" so many times and I realized that the voice does not sounds like Chris Martin's. Well, maybe I'm wrong, but if I'm not, can you please tell me whose voice is that? My guess is Guy Berryman, 'cause he wrote the song. But please tell me who it is!! Thanks, Arissa

    The Oracle replies:

    I can see why you may be sceptical but it is Chris. When the band first formed his singing voice was a lot deeper and softer but I assure you it's him. The song credits the band, not just Guy, with writing.

    Q. Since the first time watching the "LiTii" vid I have had a theory going and now that my curiosity's gotten the best of me I thought I would run it by you, dearest Oracle. The guys are always speaking of themselves as if they are not cool? enough to be "rock stars" (something every Coldplay fan, I'm sure, disagrees with). Could it be that their respective puppets did what the guys would love to do if they were "rock stars" ...Chris could do the splits, Johnny would smash up his guitar and amps, Will would throw his drumsticks out to a fan, Guy...well Guy would be Bono and collectively they would fly off in a helicopter? Thank you, Oracle, keep up the great work!

    The Oracle replies:

    It was more a case of director Dougal Wilson throwing a few rock n roll cliche in the mix. Chris is already renowned for his nimble acrobatics on stage, Will does throw his drumsticks and the band have been known to arrive/leave in a helicopter (e.g. Isle of Wight Festival) but thankfully there's always room for Jonny!
