Q. Hello Oracle,
I managed to get two tickets for Under 1 Roof (I can't wait). However, I was wondering if you know what the band will be wearing? Will it be Mylo Xyloto related or Lp 6 related? I have my own MX jacket I have made, I wore it to their gig last year and I was going to wear it again if they were going to 'suit up' as well :)
Many thanks, Harvey
Q. Hey Oracle!
Can you please confirm the date when Mylo Xyloto released? Was it 19th October or 24th October? Also, which is your favourite song from the album?
I'll be very glad if you answer my question.
Q. Hi Oracle, I've been reading the MX comics upto the latest issue 5, and I'm confused about exactly how each of the songs fits into the plot line of the Mylo Xyloto comic series. The song Major Minus is obviously a reference to the antagonist, but what about the others? Up In Flames, for example? Princess of China etc. I'm not sure there is even a "China" in the fictional universe of Silencia.
Q. Dear Coldplay,
We have just bought the Coldplay Live 2012 Concert film. It is an amazing film, that brings back some wonderful memories. We only went puzzled when you say that you started the tour on Madrid. Did you forgot the extraordinary concert that you did in Oporto on the 18 May??
Paulo and Cristina.
Q. Hi Oracle! :) So I was looking around on iTunes and I found this. It's by a band called Mylo Xyloto, and it was released before Coldplay's album Mylo Xyloto was released.
There is also an album by that band. I was just wondering if this has anything to do with Coldplay.
Thanks so much! :)
Q. I have not heard one thing about Coldplay in so long. I was listening to my two favorite songs off of MX last night, Hurts Like Heaven, and Don't let it Break Your Heart, and thinking these songs are so special to me and make me feel like crying but in a good way. I hope the band will make more music in the near future. Thanks.
Q. I heard that Chris had said that the name of the next album would be easier to pronounce. So the name of the next album has already exist. When will the band be ready to declare it?
a few days ago you said something about a folder with icons and images you could download from coldplay.com which was called Coldplay Tour.
Can I still download it?
It would be nice if you answer.
Thank you and nice greetings!
Q. So come on then, which came first... The comic/story or the album?
Q. So I had an amazing time at the Coldplay concert last night in Munich, and it brought back a question I've had for a while. How do you pronounce Mylo Xyloto?
Q. Dear Oracle,
Will Chris, Will, Guy, and Jon be in the Mylo Xyloto movie, such as Chris playing the role of Mylo? Thanks!
Q. Hello there, Oracle!
I was wondering if the artwork for Mylo Xyloto (like that whole painted wall in the CD booklet thing) is a real wall or if it was made in some kind of photo editing software... or both. I think I heard that Will Champion did a lot of painting for the sets and stage props and what not but I was just curious because I absolutely love the style. I'm currently working on my own sort of drawing/painting thing inspired by that painted wall. Or whatever it may be. Thank you! :)
Q. Greetings oh wise Oracle...
This question might have been asked already, but which Mylo Xyloto album artwork do the boys consider to be the 'main' or 'original' one?
Q. At the opening of Paradise and Charlie Brown videos we can see underneath the song title the numbers MMXI and MMXII respectively, this would have anything to do with the song titled MMIX that serves as a opening for Every Teardrop is a Waterfall?
Q. Dear Oracle,
I know that Chris said that Mylo Xyloto is a love story but I don't know if the other albums have any story. If they have, Can you tell me what are and summarize the main ideas?
Thank you so much.
Q. Hi Oracle, How are the boys today? Are they quite nervous about the release?
Q. Gracious Oracle,
I have long awaited Mylo Xyloto's release and I can't wait till next Monday. I am looking forward to getting the album, finding a nice place to sit, and listening through the whole thing as I have with the other albums. However iTunes is streaming one song a day till its release and it is very tempting to listen to. Should I listen to the songs each day or should I wait for Monday to enjoy it and all its splendor. Thanks so much.
Q. What happened to PoC and Up in Flames? I thought Phil announced that they would be the b sides to the Paradise.
Q. Oracle, I have a question regarding the leaking of the album name before it was officially announced: did the leak have anything to do with the decision by the band to reveal it when they did? And how frustrating is it for the boys to see a secret like that come out to light? Are they seeking any damages from the source that leaked the name? Was there (or still is) a reason for the secrecy to begin with?
Ok, I know, I said one question and it's more like 4, but I guess that will make up for all the other times my questions have not been answered.
With much love, Dan.
Q. Hey, Mr. Oracle.
How's your summer been?
I was just wondering if the MX on the newpaper, was a hint to the name of the album, when Coldplay changed their look for the website? Did they know that was what they were going to call it from the start?
Lots of love
Q. Hi Oracle,
I was wondering if the song played before Hurts Like Heaven during the festival circuit is actually called Mylo Xyloto and was just shortened to MX to avoid spoiling the title of LP5 before the title was officially announced. Thanks!
Q. Hello Oracle,
I know you won't publish my question but I'll write it down the same. Is there any connection between MYLO XYLOTO and the street artist XYLO (whose name is MYLO)? There are lots of coincidences and not just in the name...
Q. Dear Oracle,
What does Mylo Xyloto mean?
Q. Dear Oracle:
I read somewhere that the release date of Coldplay's new album is going to be 10/10 or October 10th. I'm pretty sure this person just made that up based on the fact that MX in roman numerals is 1010. It does sound probable though. Is there any way this is true? Thanks! much love :)
