    Q. Greetings Oracle, This message is directed at Phil or Dave, a response from either or both would be equally desirable. I have a question regarding the abysmally awful state of documentaries about Coldplay. I've seen nearly every one of them, as far as those that are available here in the U.S., and not a single one of them is of any quality or credibility to reflect that of the band. Please advise if possible. Thank you, and best wishes. Ethan

    The Oracle replies:

    You are entitled to your opinion of course and whilst you'd like a response from Phil or Dave, you're stuck with me. After all it's my name at the top of the page ;) So in reply I direct you to the best documentary by far (in my honest opinion) and hope this appeases you Ethan.

    Q. I just heard the bit of Chris singing Parachutes during the Guadalajara show. Was he getting a little choked up by emotion? Thanks!

    The Oracle replies:

    No but I think most of the audience were! That was something that took everyone by surprise as none of us had heard that song live for quite some time.

    Q. Why are the band laughing in this video?

    The Oracle replies:

    When the video gets to around the 1 minute 45 seconds mark the band laugh as Chris has just sang the wrong lyrics! For verse 2 he repeats the second line of verse 1...

    Q. Wise Oracle, how is it possible for my friend and I to have practically the same exact dream? The dream was about our friends trying to climb this mountain to get to heaven. Then I remembered before I went to bed that night, I listened to the Coldplay song 42. And the line in the song that says "You didn't get to heaven but you made it close" really related to our dreams! -Ali

    The Oracle replies:

    It's not all that uncommon; it's happened to me. I was sharing a twin room on a business trip and I swear my friend stole my dream as they had the same one as me! Here comes another theory of mine: I reckon my dream was above me hovering in the room as I slept and it ended up in their head on its journey back instead of back to me. Listening to 42 and its lyrics certainly explains your dream content and therefore it's not exactly a coincidence or anything extraordinary...

    Q. Hello, Oracle! Last summer when I saw Coldplay in concert, I purchased a bottle of water and was surprised when the cashier wouldn't let me keep the cap to the bottle. I politely questioned this, and she said it was the band's request. Were they worried I would throw the cap at them or something? xo, Gretchen

    The Oracle replies:

    I'm not trying to diss the cashier or anything but that is not true at all; it is standard venue policy. Sadly at times it is quite common for people to throw their bottles and if the cap is off there's more chance that any contents are dispelled in travel causing less damage should said bottle land on someone's head for instance.
