Q. Dear Oracle,
You answered to another question that there isn't a greatest hits album yet, but on Amazon I found one. So my question is if this is an official CD by Coldplay or just songs by Coldplay thrown on a CD?

The Oracle replies:

The latter. I'm sorry but it matters not what you found or where - if it isn't in this official site's Recordings section it's not a legitimate release.
There is no bona fide Coldplay Greatest Hits album.
