Q.  Oh Mighty Oracle,

I was wondering what happened to the band's partnership with Make Trade Fair. I know for AROBTTH and X&Y Chris had it on his hand and they passed out flyers about it. I never hear about their working with it anymore; did they stop or are they just not as public about it anymore?

Thanks for answering!


Coldplay were involved in Make Trade Fair's campaign launch back in 2002 and signed up to dedicate 2 years to the cause. They continues to actively support MTF beyond those years. MTF is part of Oxfam and as you may know, the band are still heavily involved with the charity.

Q.  Dear Oracle,

First I hope you're doing fine and everything goes well!?
I have a question concerning the Oxfam In My Place film project... sadly I found out today that it was possible for fans to participate by sending a pic or video for the film. Is it totally useless to send one through? I would really love to send one... but I know I missed the deadline *damn*.
And second I wanted to ask if this will be a real music video for the Oxfam version of In My Place with the band in it etc. or is it a PR-video for the Oxfam campaign?

Thank you a lot for your reply :)
Have a good day,
greets from Austria

The deadline was the final date to submit your videos.
The answer to your second question can be seen here as Mat Whitecross has worked hard to turnaround those submissions into a great video.

Q.  A week or so earlier, you stated that the pictures/videos for the out of place video was due on march 20. the web site says April 2nd. Which is right, because if it's the latter, my pictures will be much better (in a sense...) and better for the clip. thanks

At the time I answered it, I got the date from Oxfam's website. They must have extended it to the 2nd April. Always go off what they say, after all it's their competition.

Q.  Hello Oracle! How was your holiday?

I got X&Y for Christmas, and I was flipping through the inside booklet. What is written on the back page? Even with the key I couldn't figure it out.

Thanks in advance!

The band wanted to have Make Trade Fair as the final message in code.
