Q.  Hey I should probably be shot for asking this but why is Coldplay's 'pad' called 'The Bakery'?

Bit harsh isn't it? The answer is as obvious as it may seem but I don't reckon anyone should be shot over it! The building used to be a bakery.

Q.  Dear Oracle,

First of all I would like to say that Coldplay's music is beyond amazing and I would like to thank the members for making such incredible music that truly inspires so many people. My question is in regard to The Bakery. I recently went backpacking through Europe (I went to the Louvre and OF COURSE, I took a picture with Delacroix's Liberty Leading The People, which is absolutely stunning!) and I also went to London. After checking out all the typical tourist sites, I was determined to hop on a train, get off on Hampstead Heath and walk to The Bakery. My questions is does the band really use The Bakery? I took some pictures there and since I'm such a huge fan, some of my friends say that they really don't use The Bakery at all and to be honest, I want to prove them wrong and who else to help me out than the amazing Oracle! =)

I would also like to add that one of my most cherished memories from my time near The Bakery was that since it was very chilly, I stopped in a small diner and as I was waiting for my hot chocolate, the Viva La Vida video started playing and it just added to the fact that I felt so close to Coldplay and their music.

Thank you for your time and have a lovely day =)

Yes they do use the Bakery; it's their HQ. They have a studio there and offices; it's where they work.
They might have been there the day you took photos but as we ask fans to respect their workspace, I applaud you for not attempting to find out. It's nice there was a sign that made you feel close as indeed you were.
