Q.  I wanted to book tickets to Coldplay Live 2012 on Vue cinemas but I was surprised to find that it is a certificate 15 so I cant see it. Why is this, Do they swear or anything, its just confusing :)
P.S - HUGE HUGE HUGE Fan of Coldplay if you couldn't tell :)
Greetings From UK!

I'm not sure if you got to see the show during the tour but yes, Chris does swear. It's only a couple of times so I didn't realize that would make it a certificate 15 though. PG surely?
Anyway, in 19 days everyone will be able to watch it on DVD.

Q.  Wait. I'm so confused. So the Coldplay film is showing in select theaters? I thought you only bought it online? Please explain!

Both are more than possible... you can only buy it online but you can also watch it in selected cinema. That's obviously going to depend on where you live as it's not on general release or anything.
Anchorman will provide more news about all that soon.

Q.  So come on then, which came first... The comic/story or the album?

Well this is interesting because they were working on both at the same time yet both were very separate entities. However, the name Mylo Xyloto was first associated with the comic.
It was only later when the musical direction of the album changed and the comic idea was put on the back burner that the name became the album's name.
I hope that makes sense!

Q.  On the new 2012 DVD trailer I think I noticed that a part of the video is form the Warsaw concert (00:57 I think) Does it mean that one of the songs will be from that concert!?

All the details are in the news piece including the director saying: "Live 2012 includes footage from Coldplay’s shows at Paris’s Stade de France, Montreal’s Bell Centre and last year’s triumphant Pyramid Stage headline performance at Glastonbury Festival".

Filming was completed by the Stade de France show in Paris so anything after won't be included.
Therefore no, there won't be footage from the Warsaw gig in the film.

Q.  Hi Oracle!
I was wondering: What is the difference between the $20.91 (CD/DVD) live 2012 bundle and the $24.13 (DVD/CD) one?
Thanks!! :)

Both the CD/DVD and the DVD/CD packages contain the same 95 minute film and 15 track live album but the difference is the DVD/CD version comes in a bigger box, with a DVD-sized booklet which contains an extra 2 pages.

In the UK that's the �12.99 and �14.99 versions.

Q.  Hi Oracle,
I saw on the official Twitter of the band that they will make an announcement next week about the coldplayfilm. Does it mean that it will be released next week or is it only an info they will give us about it ? Thanks :)

The announcement will simply be giving more information about the film but it's not finished yet so definitely won't be released this soon - the band are still on tour. Two more European dates to go... What a Summer it's been.

Q.  I heard on radio station I could send my video for the dvd of Montreal show, could you send the link for it?


It's only if you have film footage of Us Against The Word and/or Speed Of Sound.
Here is more information for you.

Q.  Dear Oracle,
Will Chris, Will, Guy, and Jon be in the Mylo Xyloto movie, such as Chris playing the role of Mylo? Thanks!

I think you may be a little confused. The Coldplay film is a live concert film - it's not about the Mylo Xyloto story that the comic is based on.
The comic characters (which are all animated also) are not based on the band members nor are they them *playing* any of the characters.
