Q.  Dear Oracle,

I'm about to spend all my savings on old Coldplay releases like Blue Room EP, Safety EP, and so on...

I'm going to be broke, but happy.

Should I really do this?

In your shoes I would just buy The Blue Room E.P. It shouldn't be anywhere near as expensive as the Safety E.P (going for £1000 plus). It features 2 of the exact recordings from Safety too. It is very hard to find a bona fide original copy of Safety so do be careful as you may be buying a fake. Other singles are fairly easy to find or you may get a good deal on the singles box set; they're vinyl only though.

Q.  Wow, you got me confused there, Oracle.

Does Prospekt's March not count as an album? Why?
And when do you know when it's an album or an EP (extended play).

It doesn't say it's an EP in the discography.

We certainly mentioned that it was an EP many times in our news announcement...
EPs generally have less tracks and a shorter running time than an album but more than a single.
Our Recordings section doesn't actually differentiate between any of the singles, EPs or albums.
