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.

It's Record Store Day in the UK on Saturday (20th April). There is a special picture disc limited edition release of Hurts Like Heaven and Us Against The World (Live). It will also contain Issue One of the Mylo Xyloto Comic.

More information was posted by Anchorman earlier.

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?

All he was saying there was that Mylo Xyloto was problematic for most to say. It was tricky to know where to put the emphasis on Xyloto and whether to pronounce it with 2 or 3 syllables for example.
The band will not declare the final title (or any working titles) until the album is ready.

Q.  Hello,
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!

This is the link for the MX digital tour pack.

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.  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?

Chris explained: it's pronounced my-lo zy-letoe (or / 'maɪləʊ 'zaɪlətəʊ / if you speak phonetics).
To break it down one step further:
my lo zy (rhymes with my) le (rhymes with the) toe

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.

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! :)

The graffiti wall does exist although it is 9 panels that make it whole. There's no digital trickery, it's all real spray paint.
Will didn't take on a leading role, they were all involved in creating it and the ideas behind it. There are individual touches here and there but Paris painted the sets and instruments.

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?

Ooh that's an interesting question yet at the same time if we think about it... why would anyone who had an absolute give the option? I think the beauty of it is that they see that both work so well but suit different individual styles within the parameters. As with lyric interpretation, the band have left it up to you to decide which you prefer. That's also why I like the personalised MX artwork.

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?

The Paradise video was made in 2011 and the Charlie Brown video was made in 2012. In Roman Numerals those years are represented as MMXI and MMXII respectively. Neither have anything to do with MMIX on MX - which does not mean 1010 by the way.

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.

Mylo Xyloto does have themes though is not a concept album per se but it's the only one of the band's 5 to have a story running through it. This doesn't mean there aren't themes in the other albums but MX certainly has a more constructed form.
