Q.  Dear Oracle,
Once my physics teacher quoted Coldplay in the classroom and said that Chris had some sort of training, diploma in Arts. That's right?

Not to my knowledge, no. Chris didn't study the Arts or any art subjects. He studies Ancient World Studies (Greek & Latin).

Q.  Do you know if Chris still owns the raincoat he wore in yellow, it's my favourite song and I just always wondered?

I have no way of knowing but I'd put money on the answer being "no". As is the nature of videos, it may not even have been his coat.

Q.  I found this video online:

Is it just me or is a Chris walking out and a Chris looking back somewhere around 3:12 at the same time? How is this? Was the walking out part edited in?
Thanks, Marie.

It's just you; the "Chris" looking back isn't Chris.

Q.  Dearest Oracle, I listen to The Breeze radio in Southampton on my ipad in Canada (my daughter is in uni there). I could have sworn I heard a phone commercial with Chris and Will. Do my ears deceive me? Much gratitude for your reply. Mandy.

I can't trace every station the guys have recorded little sound bites for but it's entirely possible given that Will is from Southampton. If it is, I suspect it's old. It's not really a commercial though, just a plug.

Q.  Hi! I heard that Coldplay was recording with Rik Simpson in Malibu/LA. Was it the whole band or just Chris? Thanks!

That particular session was just Rik but that's obviously not always the case.
It's worth remembering the band often do bits & pieces alone, together or in smaller groups (Jonny & Chris, Chris & Rik etc.) They have always recorded together & separately.

Q.  Hello Oracle and to every Coldplayer on earth!
My question is:
What model is the BMW driven by Chris in the music video The Scientist?
A few years ago I read that the car was an 1985 model. Then I discovered another website declaring the vehicle a 1987!

So now I am a bit confused! I want to purchase the same model car for myself one day. ;) And I want the correct model!
Thanks so much.

Devout Coldplayer forever,

It's an E28 BMW 5-Series. Apparently they were made between 1981 and 1988 so it very well could be '85 or '87.
I can't confirm this because it was merely a prop used in a video and has absolutely NOTHING to do with Chris. He only drove it in the video - it's not & never has been his car.

If you love the car and want to buy one the same, I think you're safe with a BMW 5 Series E28.

Q.  Hi Oracle,

I am an avid badge collector, and have looked everywhere for a love badge that Chris has been wearing over the past 12 months, it's drivng me insane trying to find one any ideas where I can purchase one?

Yes, I do. Before I tell you, let me share something. I'm a great believer in paying it forward and giving something back but only if I believe in it.
I'd always advise decisions to be based on a personal basis.
All I ask is that before you decide to purchase the badge / pin / button, you please research the meaning rather than adopting something ad hoc.
If you can relate to it or it does mean something to you, feel free to go ahead and support the Love Button Movement.
You can get involved without buying anything and maybe that's something to also consider.

Q.  Dear Oracle,
I was watching this Coldplay Mylo tour live documentary and in the end they play a song in Chris' voice. Please tell me which song is that ?


I presume you mean as the end credits roll on Live 2012?
The song is called Up With the Birds.

Q.  Happy Hump Day!

I remember you saying (at least I believe it was you) that some of Viva was recorded "under the influence" (of hypnotics). Was The Escapist one of those songs?

Thank you in advance,
Ralph C.

Although I have commented on this before, it wasn't me who said the band recorded "under the influence" of hypnotism. The press picked up on that particular story.

I just googled Hump Day and apparently that means Wednesday. Very confused because you sent me the question on Tuesday.
