Q. Hello Oracle, I was strolling through Coldplay's videos and I found the one for In My Place. I noticed two dark figures at the very back. Was that part of the video? If so why?

The Oracle replies:

If you type in my place into the search field on the Oracle page, you will see I have answered this - most recently in April. It's also on wikipedia . The women were a wardrobe assistant and the then video commissioner at EMI, Faith Holmes. The reason the director (Sophie Muller) decided to keep them in shot was to show the expanse of the room.
