Q. Who does the strings on Rainy Day? It's probably one of Coldplay's best songs, in my opinion.

The Oracle replies:

All string arrangements / performances on Rainy Day are by Davide Rossi. Davide has been arranging strings with the band for a while now but his website hasn't yet been updated to include his more recent Coldplay collborations.
