  1. 29 May 2014 / submitted by Thibault, France Q. Hi Oracle, Just back from the amazing concert in Paris, I saw the setlist posted by Phil Harvey. Charlie Brown is written on that list, but was surely not played at the concert, what happened to it? THE ORACLE REPLIES > You were there & I was there yet I heard Charlie Brown and you didn't. I shall assume you were SO excited that it didn't sink in. ;-) It was the second song. There were last minute changes to the setlist. That isn't unusual but it's why the one Phil tweeted was hand-written. Here is last night's setlist: Always i
  2. 29 May 2014 / submitted by Karim, United Kingdom Q. Why the set used to the TV Special is too expensive? It seems simply a round stage... THE ORACLE REPLIES > It wasn't "simply a round stage"; it was recorded in a custom-built amphitheatre. As they performed in the round, they also were able to incorporate 360-degree projections.
  3. 29 May 2014 / submitted by Jinafer, United States of America Q. Hello! Hope everyone is doing excellent. Short question: Who is the young lady floating under water during Coldplay's performance of Another's Arms? Give my greetings to Chris, Guy, Jon, and Will. Love ya boys! THE ORACLE REPLIES > I'm sorry I don't know her name. She wasn't an actress but a model.
  4. 29 May 2014 / submitted by Jayden, United Kingdom Q. So for a project at school, we are designing a house on sketch up. I had the brilliant idea of having live music, and I will make 3d models of members of coldplay to put inside of the house. Do you know where I can get good pictures of the whole band that look like they are performing? ThX;) THE ORACLE REPLIES > Have a look through any of Anchorman's live blogs on tour or visit the Live section and click the interactive map to see fans' photos from shows. If they're not in one shot, I'm sure you can still make your models.
  5. 29 May 2014 / submitted by Isabelle, Netherlands Q. Dear Oracle, I just found a video of Midnight, live at the Alcaline concert. I love it. Can you give me the playlist of that concert? Love Coldplay and thank you for your time. Isabelle THE ORACLE REPLIES > I was very confused by this as I didn't know where Alcaline was. I realise you're actually referring to the TV special, Coldplay: Ghost Stories that you presumably watched on Alcaline. It's got nothing to do with Alcaline by the way. They set list was: Always In My Head Magic Clocks True Love Viva La Vida Another's A
  6. 28 May 2014 / submitted by Stephen, United States of America Q. I love the stage set from the Ghost Stories TV special. Who designed it, and will it be going on the road with the band? THE ORACLE REPLIES > It was designed by Phil, Paul Normandie and Misty Buckley. It hasn't been (& won't be) on the road with the band; it's actually too expensive to do.
  7. 28 May 2014 / submitted by Brian, United States of America Q. Hello Oracle, There are many, many Targets stores around my area and I was glad to see some Coldplay swag in the stores today, promoting the new album! CD/album, same thing nowadays right? Anyways, I noticed the BIG sign with a picture of the band above the new "CD" and asked an employee what happens to the sign when they take it down. They said they get thrown out. I asked if I could have it but they said, "No, Coldplay won't let us. It would be copyright infringement for us to give it away so we just rip it up and throw it in
  8. 27 May 2014 / submitted by Amy, United States of America Q. Dear Oracle I loved the Ghost Stories movie that aired. My favorite part is when Chris sings Oceans on the Paradise Cove pier (do I have that location right?) Did he really jump into the Pacific or was that fantastic movie magic? THE ORACLE REPLIES > I loved that part too. The location was indeed Paradise Cove pier, Malibu but the shot of Chris jumping into the water and the subsequent underwater shots were filmed at the Irvine High School's pool.
  9. 27 May 2014 / submitted by Jairo, Colombia Q. In the little book of the Ghost Stories CD, there is a little heart. Below it, there are some letters (amgvjcnkjajrmyrm), what does it mean? THE ORACLE REPLIES > I actually mentioned this on twitter the other day. If you recall, there was something similar on the MX album cover: JMYAMGNA?RCVJJ The amgvjcnkjajrmyrm that appears on Ghost Stories are the same letters (apart from the ? is now an R*) in a different order. The letters are the initials of the band's family (children, mothers of / partners). *R was a baby bump at the times of M
  10. 27 May 2014 / submitted by Tim, United Kingdom Q. Dear Oracle, I was lucky enough to get tickets to Casino de Paris. Is there any support? Please tell me it's Madeon, after the collaboration on the album! THE ORACLE REPLIES > I'm not sure I'd use the word collaboration for the tiny - yet important - additional input by Madeon. I believe it was the final sound we hear on Always In My Head. Anyway, there will be no support act tomorrow evening. See you there!
  11. Awesome review Céline ! It was really nice to meet you:)
  12. 23 May 2014 / submitted by Daisy, Indonesia Q. TEAM ORACLE QUESTION #169 I'm so sad, very sad. What do you feel when somebody look down on you just because you never had boyfriend. Now you are 23 years old. They asked when will you get married, and I answered I don't know and they insist to get the answer. I have not thinking about marriage and more. I don't care but I feel so sad. THE ORACLE REPLIES > Are you sad because you're single or sad because of the way people treat you being single? If it's the former, don't worry. Love will come but it doesn't matter whether that's at 23, 33

  14. 22 May 2014 / submitted by Andrew, United States of America Q. Dear Oracle, do you happen to know what the setlist was for the recent intimate performance at Royce Hall? THE ORACLE REPLIES > I'm sure you'll agree that the set list in L.A was a real unexpected treat: Atlas Charlie Brown The Scientist Don't Panic A Whisper Til Kingdom Come Viva La Vida Paradise Always in My Head Magic Ink True Love Midnight Another's Arms Oceans The encore was: A Sky Full of Stars Yellow O
  15. 22 May 2014 / submitted by Jennifer, United States of America Q. Hi Oracle! I just checked the tour list for Coldplay possibly coming to the US to perform, but it shows none. Is there a possible date that might come up? I love the new album Ghost Stories and I especially hooked on the song Magic. I really hope they could come to New York. It would make my day! THE ORACLE REPLIES > I'm afraid you missed them, Jennifer. They played NYC on 5 May. I don't reveal future tour dates - as you might know - but there isn't a major world tour planned.
  16. 22 May 2014 / submitted by Kirsten, New Zealand Q. Hey there Oracle. What started the Team Oracle questions? Did you decide to do it or did someone say '... you're good at giving advice, go help the fans out!' Hope you're having a marvelous day! (the word 'marvelous' isn't used enough these days is it...) THE ORACLE REPLIES > I was already answering questions from fans that were more on a personal level - matters of the heart etc. What I noticed was that fans would then write to me after I'd posted the reply and add their comment. I thought it would be a nice idea to once a we
  17. 22 May 2014 / submitted by Guadalupe, Argentina Q. What happened to the draw to win the album autographed by the band? THE ORACLE REPLIES > As with all our Coldplay Messenger competitions, we only notify the winner. The closing date isn't until tomorrow though, so you're a bit early asking.
