Q.  Hello Oracle!
So as I was scrolling through Twitter yesterday, I saw a Tweet about the new A Sky Full Of Stars EP. Then, of course, I went to iTunes to buy it but it wasn't there. I searched and searched for it but it's not showing up. I even asked a few of my friends if it was available for them and they said no. I'm not sure if it's just because I live in America but I know the release was worldwide. Do you know why it is not showing up? Please help!
Thank you!

Those songs were available in the U.S back in May on the Target Deluxe version of the album. That is why the E.P is not available in America as Anchorman reported.

Q.  Is Brothers & Sisters considered to be an EP? Safety and Blue Room are listed as EPs on the website, but Brothers & Sisters is not.

That's because the Brothers & Sisters in our Recordings section is referring to the song - not the EP.
Fierce Panda released the Brothers & Sisters EP (which the second image in Recordings is of) and then a re-recorded version appeared on the b side of Trouble (the first image) released on Parlophone.

Q.  Dear Oracle,

I'm about to spend all my savings on old Coldplay releases like Blue Room EP, Safety EP, and so on...

I'm going to be broke, but happy.

Should I really do this?

In your shoes I would just buy The Blue Room E.P. It shouldn't be anywhere near as expensive as the Safety E.P (going for £1000 plus). It features 2 of the exact recordings from Safety too. It is very hard to find a bona fide original copy of Safety so do be careful as you may be buying a fake. Other singles are fairly easy to find or you may get a good deal on the singles box set; they're vinyl only though.

Q.  Wow, you got me confused there, Oracle.

Does Prospekt's March not count as an album? Why?
And when do you know when it's an album or an EP (extended play).

It doesn't say it's an EP in the discography.

We certainly mentioned that it was an EP many times in our news announcement...
EPs generally have less tracks and a shorter running time than an album but more than a single.
Our Recordings section doesn't actually differentiate between any of the singles, EPs or albums.
