Q.  Does Chris have an O or a circle permanently tattooed on his left hand or was it just drawn on?

Unlike the MTF equals sign that Chris used to have drawn on his hand, the O is a permanent tattoo.
It's not necessarily the tattoo that Chris sings of in Ink as the O wasn't his first.

Q.  Oh Mighty Oracle,

I was wondering what happened to the band's partnership with Make Trade Fair. I know for AROBTTH and X&Y Chris had it on his hand and they passed out flyers about it. I never hear about their working with it anymore; did they stop or are they just not as public about it anymore?

Thanks for answering!


Coldplay were involved in Make Trade Fair's campaign launch back in 2002 and signed up to dedicate 2 years to the cause. They continues to actively support MTF beyond those years. MTF is part of Oxfam and as you may know, the band are still heavily involved with the charity.

Q.  Dear Oracle, how would I go about getting involved in Make Trade Fair? Thanks to Coldplay for all they do. God bless and we will see you June 23rd Dallas, TX.

If you want to find out more about MTF, visit the Oxfam website. It will tell you how to support them or get involved as a worker / volunteer.

Q.  Hello Oracle! How was your holiday?

I got X&Y for Christmas, and I was flipping through the inside booklet. What is written on the back page? Even with the key I couldn't figure it out.

Thanks in advance!

The band wanted to have Make Trade Fair as the final message in code.
