Q.  Hi Oracle, I have a question. What is the official release date of
Mylo Xyloto in the Netherlands? Some people say 24 October and other
people say 21 October.
Thanks, Eva
Well, as it goes you are getting it on the 21st which is sooner than
many countries. Last week the band's official facebook page was updated
with this message:
Hello people of the Netherlands. Coldplay's new album, Mylo Xyloto, is
released in your country on 21 October.

Q.  Is going to be a music video of Paradise?
and if the answer is "yes", Are we going to see it before October 24th?
Thanks!
Yes there is. I haven't got a date for you as yet so not sure if we'll
get to see it before the album's release. I'm sure our trusty
Anchorman will make an announcement.

Q.  Dear Oracle,
I had this awesome idea today (my friends agree). Here it is: Coldplay
Day. It's on April 2nd. Get it? The date would be 4/2. My friends and
I (along with some other Coldplayers) thought it was a brilliant idea.
It would be cool if everyone in the Coldplay community recognized it.
Sort of like "Star Wars Day" which is on May 4th (May the Fourth be
with you). It's not official, but it's kind of recognized by all of
the fans and even non-fans. What do you think?
Well, given they're a British band your day is incorrect. 4/2 here
would be the 4th of February as we position the number before the
month.
I think if fans want to claim a Coldplay day as their own, go ahead
but it won't be celebrated here as everyday is Coldplay day!

Q.  Was there ever any official album art for Coldplay's first song, Ode
to Deodorant.
Also on YouTube there is a comment that says their first song was Love
I'm So Tired released in 1997. Sorry about all these questions but is
there an official release of Ode to Deodorant I can download.
Personally I have never heard a song of that name and there definitely
wasn't a release in 1997 of any kind. Ode to Deodorant was a
professionally recorded demo that followed the Safety ep but it was
never officially released in any capacity. This means there is not an
endorsed download available. There are a handful of physical copies
floating around and I have seen it online but that was a while ago.

Q.  Hi Oracle !
My girlfriends told me yesterday that she wants a week break in our
couple, a week to think about us. I'm so worried, does a break mean
always the end? Everything was so perfect, I don't know what happened.
Thank you Oracle,
greetings from France.
It doesn't always mean the end, no. I have to say I don't think anyone
can make such a huge decision in a short week - even thought it may
feel like the longest time for you Sofiane. If you decide to respect
her decision, be aware that things may not be back to normal after so
don't take any of it for granted and maybe you can both work something
out.

Q.  Hi Oracle.
I was watching some Coldplay pictures on facebook. Then I found this picture.

Is it real or fake? If its real where this was taken?

PS: Johnny's elephant looks funny with his typical hat.
Ha, ha, ha, yes that is a real photo taken only this weekend in South
Africa. It was the Saturday night encore / goodnight bow.

Q.  Will Coldplay ever come to South Africa?
I think I am really mean for this but I can never ever resist replying...
The day you sent me this question Khwezi, the band had just landed back in London from South Africa! They played 2 dates there on the 5th and 8th October so I'm afraid you missed their first visit to your country. Oops. You can read about the gigs in Roadie #42's two recent blogs.
