Q.  So Oracle, I was wondering if at the end of the new A Sky Full of Stars video what the confetti was shaped as: stars or butterflies? I tried looking but couldn't quite tell and I know that they love butterfly confetti (I was at their Portland, OR concert in 2012 and remember a lot of butterfly confetti), but then the song is about stars, so I wasn't sure. Thank you for answering all of our questions and hope you keep doing it for a long time. :)

It was star-shaped confetti used for the ASFOS video shoot and (hopefully without spoiling it for anyone going to the RAH gigs next week) during the current live shows.

Q.  O wise Oracle, my friend has this theory that you're the guy who shoots butterflies out of a cannon. Is this true?

There are a team of people who each control confetti drops, not just one person. I have actually done it in Brazil, Colombia & Mexico and it was very thrilling.

Q.  Hi Oracle.

So I seen MX tour at Manchester, Etihad... Which was fantastic - obviously, and managed to grab me some MX confetti.

When I got it home I posed the question, what do these shapes mean? Where do they come from?

Can you enlighten me with your knowledge?

Thanks.
Dan

If you look at the artwork on the MX album, you will see the same symbols by the side of each song title.
Each confetti shape represents a song.

The confetti is based on the symbols that appear in the Mylo Xyloto artwork.

Q.  Where do the Coldplay Crew get all the butterfly-confetti from?
Perhaps from a butterfly pooping pony out of Katy's world, like in the movie Horton Hears a Who?

A company based in Illinois called Strictly FX who also provide the 30+ blowers that shower us with the butterflies during the show! It's the biggest confetti drop anywhere.
