Q.  Is it the stage in the video uploaded on YouTube for A sky full of stars (TV special) is the one that Chris Martin mentioned which cost about 2m to build?

The TV special - Coldplay: Ghost Stories - was the stage that Chris was referring to when he said it was too expensive to re-create for every show but I'm pretty sure he was half joking / exaggerating the £2 million cost of it - though it was VERY expensive.

Q.  Why the set used to the TV Special is too expensive? It seems simply a round stage...

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.

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

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.
The set list was:

Always In My Head
Magic
Clocks
(Ink)
True Love
(Midnight)
Viva La Vida
Another's Arms
Oceans
A Sky Full Of Stars
(Fly On / O)
Paradise

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?

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.

Q.  Hi Guys! I'm a Graphic Designer and I'm pretty impressed with your graphics ideas. Last week I saw your movie on theaters and I can't remember the name of your designer on stage. The person who painted all your instruments and has the graffiti idea... who was... I think was a girl named Milly or something like that.

The band actually came up with the graffiti idea initially and drafted in Paris. He (& his girlfriend Milk) painted the set, drapes and instruments etc. but Misty Buckley is the set designer.
