    Q. Hi Oracle! I would want to know which Coldplay song is the most controversial? And why?

    The Oracle replies:

    I guess I'd have to say Spies purely for the reason that the song was banned in China due to political sensitivity! That is totally true.

    Q. When you cover other bands songs in concert do you have to get permission from the band or can you just play them?

    The Oracle replies:

    No you don't need permission. Here in the U.K bands have to submit a set list of the songs they play to the venue so that if any covers are performed, the original artist will receive some money under a blanket PRS (Performing Rights Society) agreement. Any venue that plays recorded or live music pay for a music license that allows the monitoring of who and what gets played where and when.

    Q. Why does Coldplay hate Atlanta? Why do we get Pete Yorn as an opener on May 17 when everyone else gets Snow Patrol, Amadou and Mariam and Elbow? Those guys are awesome! Pete Yorn sucks.

    The Oracle replies:

    Coldplay LOVE Atlanta and have had an interesting history whenever they have played there. Each to their own but I am personally sick that we're not getting Pete Yorn in the U.K as I think he's great. I've not seen him play live for over 5 years! FYI: They have shared a stage before during the 2002 Meltdown festival, curated by David Bowie at London's Royal Festival Hall.
