    Q. Hail to the Great Oracle, Is Will Champion a man of few words or silent person? Sometimes his composure is so calm that it makes me wonder. Best Regards, Chris

    The Oracle replies:

    Will's definitely not silent! The fact he's calm, thoughtful and articulate makes him a perfect spokesman for the band. He may appear serious at times but I assure you he's not a man of few words and great company.

    Q. Is it true Coldplay is touring with Amadou and Mariam? If so, have they considered performing a duet?

    The Oracle replies:

    Amadou & Mariam will be opening for Coldplay from 10th - 24th July but there's no plans for a duet.

    Q. Is the song Don't Panic by Coldplay trying to say about global warming and what we are doing to our beautiful world?

    The Oracle replies:

    It's actually more about being optimistic and seeing that every cloud has a silver lining, which means that even though there may be a negative situation, something positive can come from it.

    Q. Dear Wise, All-Knowing Oracle, I was browsing the Online Coldplay Shop, and there was a drinking glass reading "Coldplay" on it, but above it was a picture of a robot. What does the robot have to do with Coldplay? Another quick question, did Coldplay get in any trouble for the picture on the "Viva" album, due to a bit of revealing imagery?

    The Oracle replies:

    The robot is taken from the Talk video, which features the little fella.

    There were a couple of places that weren't able to stock Viva la Vida due to the cover; some just used price stickers etc to cover her modesty!

    Q. Hi dear Oracle I would like to know why you guys decided to call your first song "Ode To Deodorant" like that? It's such a great song a I would really like to know!

    Good evening! Thanks!

    The Oracle replies:

    I swear the first time I heard that song I thought it was a euphemism for something else. I'd never heard a song about something so random but totally believe Chris when he says that is in fact about deodorant!
