    Q. Hi Oracle, How many people are responsible for releasing the butterflies during Lovers in Japan? Do you know how many butterflies there are each night? I really liked the butterflies! All the best. Penny

    The Oracle replies:

    It's almost impossible to say how many butterflies were released each night but would you believe that a total of 19 people were responsible for their release? Amazing isn't it? That said, there were a couple of nights where that number grew to 20 and 21 with family members helping and between you and I, I have it on good authority that Phil's Mum was the best helper!

    Q. Hi Oracle, Is the new Coldplay Fragrance a perfume, cologne or both?

    The Oracle replies:

    It's neither; Angst was totally made up as an April Fool's Day joke and not only has it not SOLD OUT as the shop stated, it does not exist at all!

    Q. I write to offer my deepest thanks to Coldplay and the wonderful support family that surrounds them for making a dream come true. During the final days of the Viva La Vida tour in Latin America, Angie, a fellow Coldplay friend, made it a personal mission to have the members of Coldplay photographed with my daughter's favorite toy; a red MINI Cooper. My daughter and I shared countless moments together enjoying Coldplay's music. Even when her vocabulary was in its infancy, Ryan had the ability to refer to each band member by name and instrument. I looked forward to the day when I could take her to her first Coldplay concert. Without warning, at the age of three, our lives changed forever when she fell ill and passed away very quickly. Following her loss, Coldplay's music took on a much more powerful meaning in my life. A few notes of a song could ignite wonderful joyful memories of moments that we shared. In the wake of her loss and in an attempt to continue her life by keeping her memory alive, my family started a website, Ryan's MINI Adventure. We invite people from all around the world to take her favorite toy, her red MINI Cooper on adventures to experience all of the wonderful and unique opportunities that this world has to offer. All adventures are documented with photos. I've taken Ryan's MINI to several Coldplay shows, but it's been my greatest hope to have Ryan's MINI meet the band in person. It's something I know she would have enjoyed. I have created a special page on Ryan's website to commemorate the day her MINI met Coldplay and I hope you may find the time to visit - www.ryansminiadventure.com/COLDPLAY.html

    Thank you to Chris, Guy, Will, Jonny and Phil, and to all that took a moment to participate in Ryan's MINI Adventure. We also give great thanks to Angie for making it all come to life. The Coldplay fan community has offered our family so much support and we are forever grateful for their kindness. With deepest gratitude, Julie. Ryan's Mom - www.ryansminiadventure.com

    Aw what a lovely start to the week yet so poignant! I already knew about this and thought it would be a fitting tribute to Ryan to publish this letter so that people could click on the link. Much love...
