Q.  Hi Oracle! I just recently flew on an Air Canada flight and they were showing the Ghost Stories live concert which was awesome. I noticed however that the upcoming CD/DVD doesn't include non-Ghost Stories tracks such as Clocks, Viva and others that were shown in the concert on the flight.. Do you know if they'll be releasing a full concert version later on? Thanks for your time! Cheers! Gareth

No. The TV special that was aired may be a slightly different version but the DVD that's been released is the only one planned - without the non-Ghost Stories tracks.

Q.  Hi,

I was recently on a plane, and while looking through the in-flight entertainment, I noticed and watched a special live video of Ghost Stories. I am now aware that a live album for Ghost Stories is being released, and once I watched the trailer for the DVD, I was pretty sure that it was the same thing as what I watched on the plane. Is this true?


It very well could be but I believe there were (sort of) 3 versions.
One included Clocks and Paradise. Another was an edited version. The DVD could be classed as the third and consists of:
1. Always In My Head
2. Magic
3. Ink
4. True Love
5. Midnight
6. Another's Arms
7. Oceans
8. A Sky Full Of Stars
9. O

Q.  Dear Oracle,
Do you think it would have been such a bad idea to include Miracles in the GS live album as a bonus track ?

Personally, yes I do think it's a bad idea. There is no correlation between the two to justify a reason for its inclusion. Ghost Stories is an album and Miracles is a stand alone soundtrack song. Ghost Stories already has its bonus tracks.
Atlas wasn't on an album. Neither was Christmas Lights but as a Christmas song, that's a whole other reason for it not being included on MX.
I can't wait for the 24th November!

Q.  Will the new recording of the Ghost Story Live 2044 concert tournee also be available on vinyl or only on CD/DVD?

I'm loving the typo! 2044 is a long way into the future...
Ghost Stories Live 2014 is a live film / album release - as you know - but the album is only available on CD.

Q.  Dear Oracle,

I was watching the trailer for the upcoming Ghost Stories live DVD/CD/Blu-Ray and I noticed that Coldplay filmed an intimate concert for the film in a arch shaped building. The front of the building has the Ghost Stories wings printed or painting on it. I was wondering whether this was real or whether it was computer generated?

The wings weren't printed or painted, they computer generated. The shot was taken from a drone.

Q.  Dear Oracle, I was watching the trailer of the live 2014 album and it seemed to me that all the performances were taken from the special that was on tv around the time of Ghost Stories' release. Is that true or are there other performances from the tour?
Thanks- Claire xo

All the information you need - including the track listing - is in the news piece.

Q.  In Live 2012 CD Chris is saying something in the Charlie Brown number. It's something like Thank you Netherlands come to Paris".

What is it exactly and what is the meaning of this?

No mention of Netherlands. Chris says "Unbelievable. Thank you for letting us come to Paris". The bit after is tricky because of a slight echo - "and letting us see something so beautiful as". Mmm, it sounds like he's saying 'heaven' but not so sure.

Q.  Hi! Yesterday I found a Coldplay Live 2006 in Toronto, and at the beginning it said that was a production for Parlophone, so I think is kinda official, and by the way is a very good video.
So my question is Why is not in Recordings or wasn't released like the Live 2003 or 2012?

That DVD should not be available anywhere. It was never released and therefore I'm afraid the copy you have is an illegal bootleg. That's why it's not listed in the Recordings section.

Q.  I have a Scientist single DVD, but the cover is black, and on the website, under recordings, the cover is white, and I know that the white one is a cd. Was it only released in certain countries? (Also, when I put it in my DVD player, it said it couldn't play because of limitations, does that have to do with the whole releasing thing?)
Much appreciation! Have a great day!

The website is showing the CD, not the DVD and its sleeve is white. The DVD cover is black - as you know. DVDs are released according to regions. If you're in the USA (region 1) trying to watch a European release (region 2) you'll have problems. Depending on where you live will depend on what DVD will play, though there are DVD players that allow you to watch region 0 which is almost region free.

Q.  I've been wondering about this since I pre-ordered my copy of Live 2012 on iTunes, why the long gap between their two live films, was a Live 2006 or a Live 2009 ever considered?

They were considered; one was even shot but the end result wasn't to everyone's liking so it was canned.
