Q.  Can anyone identify the font used in the intro titles for the Paradise music video? It's the same font that the current Parlophone logo uses. I'm not sure if the crooked O's are part of the font or have been tweaked. Thanks!

I don't know the font name but yes, it is the current Parolophone font and the Os are part of that font.

Q.  Where can I get this font?
Thanks a lot.

I'm afraid you can't, Arthur. It's not a font per se, it's actually handwriting turned into font so it's unavailable anywhere else.

Q.  Hello Oracle..I have got a question, did Coldplay's logo change? From what I hear it changed... To be honest, last logo was beautiful, please don't change! :)

The font and therefore logo have changed since Parachutes. Mylo Xyloto was a marked departure from previous albums. Atlas is a standalone track & the MX font wouldn't have fit at all.
That said, I don't know if the Atlas font will remain for album 6 - only time will tell - but the MX font will not.

Q.  Hi The Oracle, who knows everything (yeah?). I guess I can find this somewhere in the big Internet-world with a little moment searching but I make you this question anyway. Uhm, after these long storys there's the question:
What is the font Coldplay used in Parachutes until Viva la Vida and what is that font they use in Mylo Xyloto (in album covers etc)? Can I download them somewhere?
Hope you answer and have a nice day! (And I hope this text is understandable)

The font used for Parachutes is available yes, it's called Albertus. Our MX font isn't as it is a bespoke bubble font.

Q.  Dear Oracle: what is the name of the font on the new single's cover? Is it even a font, or perhaps something hand-designed?

a budding graphic designer.

It's basically a modified bubble font of which there are many variants.
