Q.  I really want to know about this one. I found a video it was a version of Fix You mixed with Kanye West and Eminem, and I wanted to know, was this a real recorded song? Or was it just a remix made by somebody online? I really love it because it's Fix You but has rap verses in it. Is it real? Does Coldplay know about it?

There are countless mash-ups and remixes out there but none are what you call a "real recorded song". A remix just takes parts of other songs that are then (usually) laid over an original foundation.
I wasn't aware of this specific one and it has nothing to do with Coldplay at all. As I say, there are far too many to know of them all therefore the band may or may not have heard it.

Q.  Hello Oracle! I am curious about one remix of Coldplay.

I found a version of Yellow called the Alpha Remix. Did Coldplay help create this song or is it an independent song from a DJ (such as Junkie XL)?

Thanks and hope your October is going well!

Well I guess the whole point of a remix is that someone takes a song and puts their spin on it so the band don't get involved in the process. Please note that in my eyes Coldplay did help to "create" it as they wrote the original and that is the fundamental part; a remix is an alternative version so I wouldn't refer to it as "independent". Bands don't necessarily commission remixes by the way.
There have been a few mixes that the band have really liked and gone on to use such as the Yellow Alpha remix (appeared on the Mince Spies CD) and the Thin White Duke remix of Viva la Vida (used as a musical interlude on the last tour).

Q.  Where can I find the free download of the remix of their smash hit Viva La Vida from their official website?

As Anchorman announced, it was only available for a limited time and so you have missed it via the official route. I have no knowledge of any unofficial sources, as I am a law-abiding citizen. Honest guv.

Q.  Dear oracle,
as an avid fan of coldplay i come on here every single day.
first, what is the remix of viva la vida that was played after the acoustic bit in boston? it was fantastic and id love to buy it!
second, where can i but those bracelets sold at concerts (the ones i see chris wearing). i really want some and couldnt get any at the last concert due to an empty wallet. id love to support the cause!

please answer one of coldplays biggest fans :D [im obsessed XD ]

It's a remix of Viva la Vida by Thin White Duke (aka Stuart Price). There are no current plans to release it commercially though.
The bracelets are to raise money specifically for the children of the Dafur crisis and as you say they can be bought at the shows and also here.
