    It is indeed an April Fools' day joke.

    Q. Hey I should probably be shot for asking this but why is Coldplay's 'pad' called 'The Bakery'?

    The Oracle replies:

    Bit harsh isn't it? The answer is as obvious as it may seem but I don't reckon anyone should be shot over it! The building used to be a bakery.

    Q. Dear Oracle...when the boys are out on tour, who decides where the puppets should go to have their pictures taken? Are there any requests from the band on where they should go?

    The Oracle replies:

    It's actually Dan, their trainer, who organizes and takes the puppets on their sight seeing tours.

    Q. Dear Oracle, I am going bored out of my mind. I'm sick and stuck in bed. Do you know of any interesting websites, games, etc. that might pass the time. Thanks a billion!

    The Oracle replies:

    I like some of the applications on Facebook, particularly word games; Scrabble being my favourite but the one I use excludes U.S and Canada so wouldn't be good for you. Maybe try Lexulous a very close copy, in fact there was a legal wrangle over copyright issues when they were formerly Scrabbulous. There are many free online games.

    Q. How did the idea for the VIVA logo come up? Was it first painted on Chris' piano or used as the site's logo? Who's the mastermind behind it?

    The Oracle replies:

    The band came up with the idea but it was Will who painted the logo. It was originally painted on a wall at The Bakery (their HQ). There was another colour option before the black/red combo was decided upon.

    Q. Hello Oracle, I was wondering if you could distinguish for me the difference between an opening act and a supporting act? Thanks in advance.

    The Oracle replies:

    Essentially they're the same though Coldplay don't really like the term support act due to the amazing calibre of acts they get to open the show; hence their preferred term, opening act.
