Q.  Hi Oracle!

I was looking at the official Coldplay YouTube channel and saw a lot of videos with the name Lost? competition. Can you tell me what kind of competition it was and what the prizes were?
Thanks a lot!
Ooh another Lost? Q.

Anyway, the band ran a competition a few years ago where we invited people to submit an original video for the acoustic version of Lost (Lost?). The entries were available to view on the official YouTube channel but we also needed another to cope with the volume of entries.
A winner (and runner-up) was chosen and they were invited to see the band in London and their video was shown on the big screens before the show started.
