  1. 21 May 2014 / submitted by Hasna, Morocco Q. Excuse me dear Oracle, I have replayed it a multitude of times but I didn't understood why has Will lost 2 of his favourite trousers in the video of Making Of Ghost Stories. (I'm so sorry dear Oracle, it's due to my very modest English understanding capacities.) Thank you very much. Much love from Morocco. THE ORACLE REPLIES > Chris & Will were saying that the sofa / settee / couch in the flat where they rehearsed as students was so old that the springs were poking through. Will used to sit on that chair to play drums. Every time Will g
  2. 21 May 2014 / submitted by Fred, United States of America Q. Have the boys ever played the song Twisted Logic live? I saw they played A Whisper for the first time live last night and I was really hoping sometime in the future if be one of the lucky ones to hear Twisted Logic first played live (if it hasn't been). Thank you! THE ORACLE REPLIES > As far as I know, Twisted Logic hasn't been performed live. I know Phil tweeted that the band were rehearsing a song that had never been played live before and it turned out to be A Whisper that they went on to play on Monday night in L.A. Howev
  3. 21 May 2014 / submitted by Gerson, Peru Q. Dear Oracle: I just have curiosity about this: Is it true that Coldplay have a song named Before I Lose, maybe written in 1998? Thanks for your answer! THE ORACLE REPLIES > I'd never heard of a song called Before I Lose but noticed it was apparently played at The Laurel Tree show in 1998 but as I didn't see it on the written setlist we had on our timeline, I'd say that's untrue. Unless it was a cover?
  4. 21 May 2014 / submitted by Janie, United Kingdom Q. Hi Oracle! I think it was on the BBCR1 interview with Zane Lowe, Chris described Ghost Stories as '42 minutes on an emotional treadmill'. I was just wondering whether there was a significance in making the album 42 minutes long? I know that Coldplay have a song called 42 from the VLV era so perhaps 42 is a significant number to the band? or perhaps it's just a coincidence? (it's my favourite number by the way!) Thank you! :D THE ORACLE REPLIES > There is a significance. That number is important to the band and has appeared before as
  5. 20 May 2014 / submitted by Chelsea, United States of America Q. Even though Coldplay didn't release, Your Love Means Everything, with their current label, will they ever play it live or re-release it? It's a beautiful song and needs to be heard more often! :) Much love! xoxo THE ORACLE REPLIES > They can't release a track that isn't theirs. It's actually called Your Love Means Everything part 2 from the album Your Love Means Everything by Faultline. It's not Coldplay, just Chris as a featured vocalist. Chris also sings vocals on another track, Where's My Boy? FYI: The album was ori
  6. 20 May 2014 / submitted by David, Netherlands Q. Dear Oracle, Have the band ever tried to switch roles? At a small gig or during a soundcheck or something... I think it'd be cool to see them switch roles for once. THE ORACLE REPLIES > Yes, they have done that a few times at soundchecks. I have photos of Will playing the Gibson Teardrop guitar and of Chris playing drums. Live there has only really been Jonny and Guy playing instruments other than their own. Notably keys & more recently the reactable.
  7. 19 May 2014 / submitted by Helen, Australia Q. Dear Oracle, Is it true that the female vocals in Another's Arms are from Silver Chord by Jane Weaver? THE ORACLE REPLIES > I have known Jane for over 15 years and am jolly pleased to see people interested in her work after so long. Another's Arms does feature a small sample from Silver Chord but it's not Jane's voice as far as I can tell. I'm beginning to think that's a computer generated vocal.
  8. 19 May 2014 / submitted by Alex, Canada Q. Dear Oracle, What is this? Of course it's not Coldplay, but what is it? Thanks from Canada! Alex. THE ORACLE REPLIES > Someone has added "play" to "cold". The track is indeed Bleed but it's by a band called Cold.
  9. 19 May 2014 / submitted by Lea, Germany Q. Dear Oracle, did Coldplay ever played Proof live? I really like this song, it's not very popular, but very perfect. I can play it on guitar and piano now, it sounds fantastic! Greetings from Munich! :) THE ORACLE REPLIES > Yes, Proof was played nut only a handful of times during March, 2003.
  10. 16 May 2014 / submitted by Marina, United Kingdom Q. TEAM ORACLE QUESTION #168 Recently I've been on the internet a lot and I saw a post about social anxiety and because I related a lot, I searched about it. I think I may have this disorder but I don't know how to tell my parents because I don't tend to tell them about my problems. I'm afraid they will think I'm exaggerating but if I don't tell them my problem will just get worse to the point that I will not longer be able to marry/socially interact and that is why I am looking for your help. What should I do? Thanks in advance. THE ORACLE
