    Q. Hey, Postcards From Far Away is written by Chris Martin or Will Champion?

    The Oracle replies:

    This is a question that has popped up a few times recently. All songs are credited to the whole band but that particular piece is purely a piano composition so the band didn't need to get involved as they do on other tracks; Chris wrote it.

    Q. What is the cover for the Clocks supposed to be? Everything else connected to a A Rush Of Blood To The Head is a face. But Clocks however stands out.

    The Oracle replies:

    Two Clocks questions in one day! Anyway, if you look at the cover and imagine you are underneath looking up, you can certainly spot the nose and other features.

    Q. When you say that the band Muse inspired the song Clocks... what do you mean by that ? In which way ?

    The Oracle replies:

    It was mostly Matt Bellamy's piano style that inspired the track. You can almost hear it in the rhythm of Clocks' pounding keys.

    Q. I just got home from a Coldplay concert at Darien Lake in Buffalo, NY (which was an AMAZING show!! Awesome set list and performance! My first concert ever too :]) and anyway, I was wondering, who was the opening band for that concert? They were pretty good but no one seemed to know what the name of the band was! I even asked a few of the security people working there and they didn't know! Oh please Oracle, you have to tell me who that band was! Thanks!! Love, Jio ♥

    The Oracle replies:

    Details of the current tour support was reported by Anchorman. Seems you may have seen Howling Bells and Pete Yorn you lucky thing!
