Q. Oracle my question is what was Coldplay actually playing during the filming of A Sky Full Of Stars video? Was the song playing out loud for fans to sing along? Please help me Oracle your my only hope...

The Oracle replies:

It would be extremely odd to play any song other than the one they are making a video for.
At the end of the video shoot, the band played the song (A Sky Full Of Stars if we're still not clear) live on the small raised podium. They played acoustically over a backing track and the crowd joined in for the final refrain.
