    Q. Oh ever-knowing Oracle, Is it true Coldplay are releasing a Viva La Vida Tour DVD? I heard Chris was talking about it then I heard that Coldplay's Video Manager said that the filming in Vancouver was "for the archive." Oh please answer, Oracle. Thanks a billion -Andrew

    The Oracle replies:

    It's usual to document the live shows for archive but there are no further plans for the footage as yet.


    More of your thoughts on a possible forthcoming DVD release can be found in the Coldplay forum here onwards [thanks The Escapist]

    Q. Oracle, you never answered the question users have asked about why Chicago was filmed and for what. You answered the Question about the Vancouver show pretty quickly though, what gives? Thanks

    The Oracle replies:

    Hmm, maybe I had a dream about answering, as I am sure I pointed out that you will always see cameras at all the concerts. They have to have some way of getting the images on to the screens for the people at the back to see!

    Q. Hello, I hope you have a good day. The Bakery was a new building? And how much cost were taken to built it? And how many floor, 3? Is the Bakery like a bungalow house? Hmm..I think I ask you too much but that's all. I hope you can answer it, thank you very much.

    The Oracle replies:

    Greetings Malaysia. The band didn't build it so no, it wasn't new when they moved in. It was once a real bakery and that's why they refer to it as The Bakery. As you walk in, the ground floor is the studio area. There are stairs leading to the first floor and a spiral staircase up to a mezzanine floor.

    Q. Dear Oracle You told Lynn that there is no etiquette at the band's concerts.

    I only have a fig-leaf. Is it OK? E V A

    The Oracle replies:

    Well I didn't want to list unwritten rules about respecting your fellow audience members as I have faith that everyone knows that already. This also answers Siobhain from Australia who asked about standing up in the seated area. That may be a venue rule rather than obscuring the view of the person behind. Some people want to stand and dance and some don't. Trying to compromise would be a good idea. There's usually some standard rules printed on the back of the ticket or on the venues' websites. I would hope people don't need me to tell them how not to behave, hence me telling Lynn to let her hair down and have fun. Wearing a fig leaf is probably breaching some indecency laws so clothes are the best option!

    Q. Dear Oracle, It has been a hectic week and I am exhausted. Please, please say something funny that makes my day. Thank you!

    The Oracle replies:

    I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked, "Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?" To which I replied, "If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?" He smiled knowingly and nodded, "That's why we ask."

    Q. What should one expect at a Coldplay concert? Lighting of the candles? Replay of song lyrics by the audience? ??? Dancing in the aisles? What? Obviously I'm a newbie!!!

    The Oracle replies:

    July 13th right? I hope this means you've now found someone to go with Lynn! You can expect a fantastic show, great lights, visuals, balloons and butterflies. There'll be singing and dancing for sure. Hopefully no candles as that would be a health and safety issue. There's no official gig etiquette, you just let your hair down and enjoy yourself.

    Q. I was watching an episode of the BBC tv series The Tudors the other day on dvd. One of the characters who is a good friend of Henry the King, but I can't find his real name or character name, is a double for Chris, and this guy gets up to all sorts! Then again maybe he's not a double, maybe Chris took some time out to do a bit of acting!

    The Oracle replies:

    This will hopefully help you find the actor but I assure you it isn't Chris!
