Q.  Dear Oracle
Do the band mind if we take pics of them at concerts? May seem a silly question but I am due to see them live and know how I would feel if someone took my pic without permission!! ;/ Thanks!

As long as you're not using a camera that has a detachable lens - i.e. a professional one - you are more than welcome to take photos. That is why we encourage you to upload your photos to our Live section.

Q.  Hi! I don't really have a question, but rather just a msg for you!
I went to Coldplay's concert in Auckland and I uploaded some photos! Feel free to use them if you wanted photos taken from concert-rockers point of view haha.

Your concert was like, perfectly amazing! Thank you! :) x

As you can imagine, there are millions of photos taken over the course of a Coldplay tour and while it's not possible to peruse them all, we do encourage fans to upload their pictures to our website. Please do add yours to the Auckland show.

Q.  Hey Oracle,
a few months ago Coldplay had an exhibition of some of their pieces from Mylo Xyloto. You could buy prints of them which were signed limited editions and also digital prints. I wanted to know if it was still possible to get the digital prints of pictures of the band because I want to get one for my mums birthday in August.
Thank you all knowing oracle!!

Try the Album Artists' shop and make sure you select the currency in the top right corner before you checkout.

Q.  Coldplay please I have really nice pictures of you guys in the toyota center in Houston I would love if you can see them please with all my heart

The best option for your photos to be seen is to upload them to the Live Transmissions section of the website.
If your pics are on tumblr, you never know, they may end up on ours.

Q.  Dear Oracle,

I'm really enjoying R42's HD panoramas of the crowds from Emirates' and other shows. All those smiling, happy people anticipating a stellar night! Tell me, how did this tradition start? I've seen OK Go and MGMT in the past year, and they take pics of their audiences too! Which band kicked it off?

Thanks! x

Many artists have been taking photos of their audiences for years. Digital technology has improved so much that in recent times sporting events and groups such as U2 & Take That have taken 360 degree shots of the crowd where you can zoom in and tag yourself for example.
After the first night photo that Roadie #42 took, we loved it so much that it was decided to do one every night from the same point.
Typically I'm not in my seat when I click to zoom.
It's a great interactive tool but as for the first band to do it... I don't actually know but it wasn't OK Go or MGMT.

You can share them by uploading them to our Live Transmissions section on this very website. Look forward to seeing them!

Q.  Respectable Oracle,

How is it that we, as Coldplayers, are asked to upload pictures and videos to update the Live Archive when cameras are not allowed? Or is it assumed that we all own smart-ish cellular devices? I am not trying to be facetious, just wondering how others have gotten by sneaking these shots because I am seriously contemplating smuggling a memory catcher *cough* into the Coldplay concert I am soon attending.

Love always,
Adelaide

Who says you're not allowed to take a camera? Apart from camera phones which I know many people do have these days, you are allowed to take cameras - as long as they're not full professional kit. Leave the telephoto lens at home but snap away and then share your pics via Live Transmission.

Q.  Hi Oracle,
I recently dug out my old camera and found a beautiful picture from the Vancouver show of the Viva la Vida tour. I really want to share it with people and submit it but I missed the deadline for submitting tour photos to the site. How can I submit it?

Thanks!

There is no deadline to submit tour photos to the site so just click here and upload them.

Q.  I LOVE this band and I have been known to form many a theory about their foreseeable future; however, I only ask about this one (theory) which you probably wont even get a chance to read but, meh a boy can dream. Will the new album's artwork be designed by Sr. Berryman? Is that what the old pictures were for? I know they were looking for a more intimate sound this time and, to me, old pictures make people feel happier in a nostalgic type way.
Best wishes, many thanks.
The Bran

You are way off with that theory. As we mentioned at the time, Guy's request for photos was a non-band related personal project and so they will have absolutely nothing to do with the album at all.

Q.  Hey There Great Oracle!

Today I visited a famous antiques fair here, to find pictures to Guy ... every time, I thought that if he had been there, he would have been like a kid in a toy store haha and he probably would have bought at least half of the fair haha ...

The first question is ... can I send him more of one photo? ... because, in the midst of all these great things, I found twelve beautiful pictures! And I really wanted to send him all! And some fans think that we can only send one!
And the second question..how long you will receive the cards? Because I guess my letter came to London in a couple of weeks...
Please, if you can answer me dear Oracle, I appreciate you to do quickly, so I can send my letter as soon as possible!

Regards and blessings to all of you!

You aren't limited to just sending one but given you live so far away I don't want you to spend a lot of money on postage so don't feel you have to send lots of pictures but you can send as many as you like.
As long as they are discovered/discarded/found/retrieved photographs and not personal ones we're happy to see them all and will be receiving them for a good few months I expect. Anchorman will make an announcement to give notice of when the collecting is coming to an end.
