    Q. Where do the Coldplay Crew get all the butterfly-confetti from? Perhaps from a butterfly pooping pony out of Katy's world, like in the movie Horton Hears a Who?

    The Oracle replies:

    A company based in Illinois called Strictly FX who also provide the 30+ blowers that shower us with the butterflies during the show! It's the biggest confetti drop anywhere.

    Q. Hi Oracle, whats the name of the Chris Martin and Ash song from Shaun of the Dead and where can I get it?

    The Oracle replies:

    There are three Ash songs in the film's soundtrack, Orpheus, Meltdown and a cover of The Buzzcock's Everybody's Happy Nowadays featuring Chris on vocals. You can actually find it on itunes.

    Q. Is the cover version of Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On?" sung by Bono and Chris, Chris and U2, Bono and Coldplay, or with both bands? And when did they produce the cover version? Thank You

    The Oracle replies:

    Bono was the brainchild behind this charity record that featured an array of artists. The aim was for the proceeds to benefit The United Way's September 11th Fund and Artists Against Aids Worldwide. Chris featured on the London Version along with Bono (and The Edge) so it was neither a U2 nor a Coldplay venture. This was back in 2001 after the aforementioned September 11th atrocities.

    Q. What was the classical piece of music played in the warm up before Coldplay came on stage at the O2 concert 16.12.08.

    The Oracle replies:

    The Blue Danube by Strauss comes straight after Jay-Z - I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me) that indicates it's showtime.
