Q. Who is Claire Smith? I've been going through a 1999 version of Coldplay.com and it said that comments/suggestions and questions about Coldplay should be emailed to Claire Smith. Are you Claire Smith?


The Oracle replies:

No, I'm not - never have been - Claire Smith.
Claire made her own unofficial fan site dedicated to the band. I don't know why it would show up on a search through archived Coldplay.com apart from Claire linking to our site from hers - when both incarnations were active.
Before Coldplay.com we had Coldplay.org which was a far cry from the site we have today.
They've come a long way, baby!
