    Q. Why doesn't Coldplay switch up the setlist more often? They've been playing the same songs for a while now, excluding the inclusion of Life in Technicolor II...do they not realize that they have more than 25 songs in their catalog?

    The Oracle replies:

    Well they do mix it up a little but when you've put as much time and effort into the incredible lights and visuals it would take a lot more time to get that sorted for a new set list, which they're short on. That said, it's only people who go more than once (but not consecutive nights) who will notice the small changes that have taken place over the past seven months. Green Eyes is in, Trouble is out, Yellow has not only moved but started as an acoustic song on Stage C, Stage B had The Hardest Part added, Yes did make an appearance and so on. Most bands do stick to the same set list on tour it's only your Bruce Springsteen, Radiohead et al who make the main feature of the shows a change of songs. Coldplay's huge production lends itself to being less flexible but is so worth it!

    Q. Cher Oracle, It's a technical question, why is not there RSS feeds on the site ?

    The Oracle replies:

    There definitely is because our MySpace and Facebook pages have the official site's RSS feed on them. If you click News on our main page you will see a list of top tags on the right hand side. Above that list is the standard blue RSS logo. Click that and you're off and running. Also, have you seen the share button?

    Q. I have a question about the lyrics to Yes. When Chris sing's " So up they picked me by the big... and they let go." What is in between big and they let go? Thanks a lot.

    The Oracle replies:

    Oh we could have so much fun if we were playing Blankety Blank! He actually says, "toe" but it's raised a chuckle from me!
