Q. Dear Oracle
I was wondering if the names of the songs in the Parachutes album, were chosen to sort of show someones thought while skydiving for example, or on a less literal scale, doing something that they're nervous about. Please let me know I'm quite curious.
Q. Hello Oracle!
Did you ever wonder if the globe on the Parachutes album cover is glowing? Is it actually glowing?
Q. Dear All-Mighty Oracle,
On the back of the Parachutes album, there are four people. Which one is which band member?
Q. I heard that Shiver was recorded in one take, was it?
Q. Hi!! I have been wondering for a while...where were the pictures of the band taken on the back of Parachutes? It looks like a spot in Hull. I really want to go there! Thanks
Q. I just heard the bit of Chris singing Parachutes during the Guadalajara show. Was he getting a little choked up by emotion? Thanks!
Q. Dear Oracle,
Can you please tell me where I can find a video of Coldplay playing High Speed at the HMV at London's Oxford Street (otherwise known as their one hundredth show)? I know you have posted a recording on your website, but I have checked YouTube and cannot find a video of it. I would absolutely love to see them playing that song live! Thanks for all of your help!
Q. Hello, would you please tell me about the cover art of the first album. The spinning globe... why it was chosen by the band. Thank you.
Q. Hi Oracle,
I've seen exactly the same as Steve, song nr. 7 was first longer and also a really good song! My question is was it not Ode To Deodorant?

Q. Only a true Oracle can answer this question:
When Parachutes was originally released, track 7 (titled Parachutes) was an epic song (at least 5 minutes) and my favorite on the album. The other day I was listening to my friends version of the CD, and his track 7 (also titled Parachutes) which surprisingly was a completely different song- it was a 46 second long and very slow. Where has my favorite Coldplay song gone?
Q. Hello mighty Oracle!!!! I have a question... in the album of Parachutes whats the yellow ball?? And what does that mean??
Also do you know when is going to be a concert in Mexico?? Thanks.
Q. Hi Oracle.
Some of the early songs appear on two releases (singles, albums, EPs)
I was just wondering which of the following are actually new versions and which ones were just re-released:
Bigger Stronger (Safety EP/Blue Room EP);
Such a Rush (Safety EP/Blue Room EP);
No More Keeping My Feet on the Ground (Safety EP/Yellow single);
Don't Panic (Blue Room EP/Parachutes);
High Speed (Blue Room EP/Parachutes).
I think the Brothers & Sisters track from Brother's & Sisters is different from the Trouble single, judging by the intro.
I hope this isn't too much work for ya, but I'm sure I'm not the only Coldplay fan to wonder this.
Thanks a million.
Q. Hello Oracle!
I was just listening to Yellow by Coldplay and was wondering where they got the idea for that awsome song? Thanx:)
