Q.  Hi there,
as I see myself as a Coldplay fan and especially loved the atmosphere at the live performance (December 2011 in Cologne, and there are more concerts for me to come), I bought the Violet Hill DVD released in late 2011.
It turns out that the quality of this DVD is bad, bad, bad in every aspect (image ratio, sound quality, wrong song titles...).
Why did Coldplay approve something that bad and disappointing? Is it just about the money for them, or is it possible they don't even know of it?
Why not publish something as beautiful as Coldplay Live 2003 again?

Coldplay DID NOT approve the Violet Hill DVD - I have never even heard of it. There are countless bootlegs and illegal recordings around but only one official DVD and that's the one you mentioned: Coldplay - Live 2003.
There hasn't been anything that came close to that since but it doesn't mean there never ever will be.

Q.  Continuing with my last question about the Viva la Vida documentary being on DVD, I think Coldplay should make a whole documentary of the group Coldplay itself. Explaining the whole history of the band and how it got started it would be an interesting thing to see.

I'm not sure the band would like the idea of that too much given there are a few shows around that do document their history pretty well already. Your previous question however, was about making the Viva documentary available on DVD - that was a Swedish TV film so it's not going to be a DVD release.

Q.  Hello dear Oracle, what do you think about this?
Have a nice day.

Awww that's very sweet of fans to care so much about a DVD but there are no plans to release one and in this case a petition can't change that decision... whether 714 signatures on it or 71400!
That's very touching to see though and I'm sure it's not the only one in existence.

Q.  Did Coldplay release a DVD entitled 'Secret Gig in Paradiso Amsterdam, Netherlands, 5 June 2008'? Or did they authorize it or something?

There are many unauthorized bootleg DVDs out there but Coldplay have up to now only released one official DVD; Coldplay Live 2003.

Q.  Oh ever-knowing Oracle,
Is it true Coldplay are releasing a Viva La Vida Tour DVD? I heard Chris was talking about it then I heard that Coldplay's Video Manager said that the filming in Vancouver was "for the archive."
Oh please answer, Oracle.

Thanks a billion

It's usual to document the live shows for archive but there are no further plans for the footage as yet.
