Q. Oh Mighty Oracle,

I was wondering what happened to the band's partnership with Make Trade Fair. I know for AROBTTH and X&Y Chris had it on his hand and they passed out flyers about it. I never hear about their working with it anymore; did they stop or are they just not as public about it anymore?

Thanks for answering!


The Oracle replies:

Coldplay were involved in Make Trade Fair's campaign launch back in 2002 and signed up to dedicate 2 years to the cause. They continues to actively support MTF beyond those years. MTF is part of Oxfam and as you may know, the band are still heavily involved with the charity.
