    Q. Hello Mr. Oracle, hope you're having a good time. Recently we heard that the band finally played Cemeteries Of London (and we're really happy about that). What was the thing that made them finally play it?, did they checked any fansite with song requests?. At coldplaying.com there was a lot of people asking for the song and I must say that we're all really excited now (we even started a petition, just in case).

    The Oracle replies:

    No, the band draw up a potential set list and have a list of reserves to drop in throughout the tour. They like to change a few of the songs. They rarely play anything that they haven't prepared the lights & visuals for in advance unless it's for an impromptu acoustic version.

    Q. I've always thought that a collaboration between Trent Reznor and Coldplay would make for some really amazing music...any chance of that happening?

    The Oracle replies:

    Never say never but as you can imagine there are so many artists that Coldplay love and they can't possibly collaborate with them all, nor would they necessarily want to. Many collaborations are a result of a chance meeting or a happy accident rather than being planned in advance. FYI: In 2005 both Coldplay & Nine Inch Nails headlined Coachella Festival. Coldplay played on the first night where Chris began singing Hurt in honour of the NIN appearance the following night.

    Q. I'm really very sad and disappointed because I can't see the videos of the Coldplay's gig in the BBC Radio, it says that the service isn't available in my area. Don't you think that it's a little unfair for the fans that live in other countries?? Why do they have to restrict the service to certain areas?? We all deserve as fans to see the Coldplay's videos. Please help me to understand!!

    The Oracle replies:

    I know it doesn't seem fair but that's a BBC legal rule not the band's. It's equally frustrating when for example MTV in the U.S don't allow UK residents to watch their videos so it works both ways.
