Q. Hey guys
I am totally wondering about the Blue Room e.p. and Brothers and Sisters e.p.
Are these the first Coldplay recordings or just demos? Thank you in advance! (PS you guys are awesome!)

The Oracle replies:

Brothers & Sisters was a band demo that was released as a single by Fierce Panda. There was a subsequent version of Brothers & Sisters recorded for the b side of Trouble.
Coldplay's first release for EMI was The Blue Room. It contained a couple of tracks from their professionally studio recorded Safety ep demo.
So to answer your question, both eps are made up of both.
Coldplay's demos were all of high quality though so it's hard to see them as demonstration when they were so good.
