Q. Hey Oracle! I was just wondering with the pictures of the dolls in different places all over the world (from the Viva era), Did Coldplay actually visit the places and who took the photos? Thanks. Can't wait to see you guys in Nov! x

The Oracle replies:

Do you mean the puppets? The puppets went on tour with the band so everywhere they went, so did they. The photos were taken at every place the band played. Trainer Dan took almost all of the photos but I took a couple.
I took the one from Rio de Janeiro - that wasn't exciting due to the adverse weather conditions meaning we couldn't get to Christ the Redeemer and my favourite one ever in Mexico City where they met up with puppet pals.
