Q.  Hey, I live near Mansfield in Nottinghamshire where there is an area called Violet Hill, were the boys aware this place existed? (Would've been great if they shot the video there).

I very much doubt they're aware of every place called Violet Hill - there are so many. They're more likely to have heard of the one in NW8 though as it's pretty close to Abbey Road (& its studios).

Q.  Where is the official Violet Hill video on YouTube released by Parlophone?

You can see it on the Coldplay channel.
If you go to our Recordings section, you can find the videos for each single there too.

Q.  Do you know where the Violet Hill video was filmed? It's absolutely lovely.

The location was Mount Etna & Catania, Sicily. I assume you're not referring to the alternative Dancing Politicians video...

Q.  All I've got to say is lolwut...?

Please explain...xD

All I've got to say is what on earth does lolwut mean? Actually, don't answer that I really do not wish to know...

Anyway, what's there to explain? You must have missed this alternative video when the single was released. Two were made and this one was directed by Mat Whitecross - long time friend and collaborator.

Q.  Dear Oracle,

Was the Violet Hill single with A Spell a Rebel Yell available anywhere outside the UK? I'm desperate and resorting to ebay.

The combination of those two tracks on a physical format (7 inch vinyl) was only available as a free giveaway with the NME; unfortunately they cannot extend the offer outside of the U.K

Q.  Hey, in one of your interviews on YouTube, the guy interviewing you said that Jonny's daughter came up with Violet Hill? is that true or was it a joke? 'Cause my sheet music said written by you four. Violet Hill rocks!
V i v a v i v a!

Given that she was a baby at the time it's impossible! Her name is Violet, though Violet Hill is a place. You sheet music is correct.

Q.  kk, 2 questions.

#1: My dad won't believe me that the "dancing politicians" version of Violet Hill on youtube is official. Would you mind giving me proof of this so i can win this arguement once and for all?

#2 Why is there a delay in posting the LiT ii music video to iTunes? I want to buy it so i can show all my buddies...

#1 Yes it is. The same chap who filmed the Bigger Stronger video made it. Seems both band and director have done pretty well. Mat Whitecross
also directed the Lost!/Lost? videos amongst others.
#2 Although the single isn't officially released it's on there. Ah but you're in the States and it's not available outside the U.K right now.
