Re-live yesterday's Twitter Q&A 23 May 2012 11:40 am Catch up on Guy and Will's answers to your Twitter questions
Good morning. A big thanks to all of you who took part in our first ever #coldplaylive Twitter Q&A yesterday, when Guy and Will answered your questions from the dressing room in Nice. They both really enjoyed it - and it was great to see #coldplaylive as Twitter's number one global trending topic. Look out for our Twitter chats with Jonny and Chris very soon - follow the band at twitter.com/coldplay to make sure you don't miss it!
In the meantime, here's a full recap of yesterday's chat, in the order that it happened:
@KurstiChesters - #coldplaylive @Coldplay what is your favourite instrument to play other than the Bass?
Guys says: "Probably the electric guitar, with lots of effects pedals. Or the triangle." #coldplaylive
@swebennett - What are your thoughts on Party Ring Biscuits? #coldplaylive
Guy says: "I like those! I haven't seen those for about 20 years, though. It's not the best biscuit but it has nostalgic value"

Guy says: "The look was supposed to be like space mechanics" #coldplaylive
@all_the_stars - @coldplay Hey Guy! Any plans to run the London Marathon again? #coldplaylive
Guy says: "I don't think so. To do it once sort of satisfied the sense of achievement that I wanted to have. But it's a really hard thing to put your body through, so anyone thinking of doing it must be prepared to suffer. Might do a half, though."
@fikachan - #coldplaylive in Singapore! Guy, coffee or tea?
Guy says: "Ooh, depends on the time of day. If it's morning it's coffee. But anything after lunch is tea." #coldplaylive

@parisienne113 - @coldplay Guy, if you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live? #coldplaylive
