Q.  I saw that the next edition of Q magazine will feature an article on Coldplay's triumphant return. Is there big news coming?

The new Q magazine (issue 332 March 2014) has the headline "COLDPLAY - Q gets inside their triumphant return" on the cover. I can see why it is slightly misleading as it's referring to a past return, not a future one.
There's a small feature about the Under 1 Roof gig from December. I suppose as it was the band's first live appearance in quite a while, it was billed as a return.

Q.  Dear Oracle,
Could you please tell us why was Will absent from the Q Awards ceremony?

As you probably know by now, Coldplay were named Best Act In The World Today in the public vote (thank you!) and all but Will attended the Awards ceremony in London yesterday (24th October).

Will had a day off with the family before they reconvened to continue with press & promo duties. It's not the first time the whole band haven't attended as the Q Awards always seem to be when the band are at their busiest. I remember Guy didn't go back in 2002 when they had a show at Wembley Arena later than night.

Here's a clip of Jonny & talkative Guy at yesterday's Q Awards event.

Q.  Q Magazine has written a list of confirmed songs that will make the album cut, but I won't believe it until I hear it from you Oracle. Can you confirm or deny what Q magazine wrote?

Within the first paragraph is the quote that the tracklisting "isn't quite there". That pretty much says it all really. The album is in the final stages and those confirmed songs have been recorded. It's worth remembering that magazines usually work around 2-3 months in advance. That interview took place in mid-June which was as late as Q could leave it before going to print for the September issue. At the time of print those songs may have been "confirmed" but it will be, as Will says, done at the last minute.
