Q.  Hi dear Oracle!

Since I have Ghost Stories in my hands (which I really love) I have this questions I haven't seen being answered. Could you tell us who Kevin Cordasco is? Why is he an inspirational young man? And why is the album dedicated to him?

Greetings from Mexico and thanks in advance
By strange coincidence, Carol from Brazil wrote to me earlier saying: "I saw the beautiful dedication of GS and tried to find out who was Kevin. Great band, huge heart!" Carol also sent me a link to a community page that will you give more information plus you'll see a photo of the little chap himself with Chris. I advise you to have a handkerchief handy to wipe your tears.

Q.  Hi Oracle.

My favorite bands from across the pond are Coldplay and Kasabian. I was just curious if the boys are fans of Kasabian!

Yes. Chris tweeted about Kasabian last Friday actually.

Q.  When will you announce the winner of the signed ghost stories mug?

Pls tell Coldplay to have a concert in Manila. Thank you!
The winner is the only person notified so there is no announcement per se.

Q.  Hello there Oracle, how are you?
Has anything exciting or monumental happened to you recently?
I'm very well, thank you. Yes, actually it has. I can't tell you what it is (I should say 'they are' because there has been more than one). The universe is being very good to me and the sun is shining. June has been pretty amazing. I'm loving 2014 in fact! Life is for living. I shall stop now...

Q.  Hello Oracle, could you clarify something for me please? Is the new song on the Wish I Was Here soundtrack a collab between Coldplay and Chan Marshall or just Chris and Chan? Different websites say different things. Also, when will I be able to hear it? I love hearing new songs from Chris and/or the boys. Thanks!
I was only saying to Anchorman last week how surprised I was that nobody had asked about this song given it was first mentioned in the press over 2 months ago.
I also notice that different sources are saying different things.
Wish I Was Here is a Zach Braff film that looks set to have a great soundtrack. FYI The trailer song is So Now What by The Shins. Chris wrote a song that Chan (a.k.a Cat Power) sings and he provides backing vocals but it's Coldplay and Cat Power.
I haven't heard it yet but Dan Green tells me it's great. Zach Braff said this about it: "It's the title song of the movie. It's one of the most amazing songs ever."
The film is released 18 July. Can't wait!

Q.  Hi Oracle
I loved seeing videos on Hypnofeed, but I've noticed there has been a long break in new posts and the link seems to have finished! Was the Hypnofeed something exclusive to the Mylo era or do you think it will return in a different form at some point in the future?
The Hypnofeed was running just before and for the duration of the Mylo Xyloto album and tour. Its last submission was Tuesday, 25 February 2014 via Major Minus, Silencia.
Prior to the Hypnofeed, we had the Exhibition Room so a replacement could be possible at some stage but currently I don't know what's next - if anything at all.

Q.  How can I get an email or a reminder of every live concert Coldplay are having? I love them.... like insanely
You can sign-up on the website where it says mailing list or keep an eye on the Tour section where future dates appear. At the moment there are no live dates planned after the two RAH shows next week.

Q.  Oracle! I am sitting here trying to watch the live Sydney stream which stated it would be on today at 3:30pm 6/19 MST!!! So upset that it seems as if I missed it and it was already on!! What the heck!!?? I used your the time converter that was posted on your site!! Will it be shown again??
As MST is behind, it started at 03.30 A.M your time on 19 June, not p.m.
As it was a live stream it's not being broadcast again.
It was audio only but you can see photos via the link that we gave for the live stream and also on Triple M's website.

Q.  So Oracle, I was wondering if at the end of the new A Sky Full of Stars video what the confetti was shaped as: stars or butterflies? I tried looking but couldn't quite tell and I know that they love butterfly confetti (I was at their Portland, OR concert in 2012 and remember a lot of butterfly confetti), but then the song is about stars, so I wasn't sure. Thank you for answering all of our questions and hope you keep doing it for a long time. :)
It was star-shaped confetti used for the ASFOS video shoot and (hopefully without spoiling it for anyone going to the RAH gigs next week) during the current live shows.

Q.  Just a simple question: Where was A Sky Full of Stars shot? Oh btw, Coldplay is awesome. Okay, thanks.
The ASFOS was filmed on King Street in Newtown, Sydney.
