Q.  Hello mighty Oracle! I've read once that Coldplay uploaded (in 2008) a video from one of their first concerts as Starfish: is it possible to see this video somewhere? Thanks!

That's not actually accurate - it was audio. As far as I am aware, there is no video footage of that Laurel Tree gig.

Q.  Dear Oracle,

Do you happen to know the whole setlist that was used this recent concert in NYC? The show aired on the SiriusXM only played 15 songs. Is that really the entirety of the show?

Yes, these intimate shows are shorter than previous arena / stadium shows but the reason the radio station only played 15 songs is at the request of the band not to air brand new, as yet unheard tracks from the album (True Love). Only 12 days to go!
The set list was:
Always in My Head
Charlie Brown
Paradise
Magic
Clocks
Another's Arms
God Put a Smile Upon Your Face
Til Kingdom Come
Midnight
Viva La Vida
Fix You
Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall
Oceans
A Sky Full of Stars
Life Is for Living
True Love

Q.  Hello, Oracle!
A while back I saw something (that I believe Jonny wrote) that said at "Coldplay"'s first gig, they played one song twice because they only had a few songs. Do you happen to know which it was? Thanks!

On the 16th January, 1998, "Coldplay" played - under their previous name of Starfish - at The Laurel Tree, Camden.
The setlist was:
If All Else
So Sad
Panic
Vitamins
High Speed
An Ode to Deodorant

I'm afraid I don't know which song was played twice. If I find out, I'll update this post.

Q.  Hey all-knowing Oracle!
I saw this picture of a note containing the line up of songs the guys performed in SXSX from the official facebook and instagram page. I am just curious, was it handwritten by any of our dear guys? And who decides which song to play during gigs? Cheers from the Philippines!

The band and Phil came up with which songs to perform and yes, the setlist was hand-written by Chris.

Q.  Does anyone have the setlist from the August 10th, 2012 show in St. Paul, MN? There is an amazing amount of stuff from the tour on coldplay.com but I couldn't find any setlists!

We don't publish the setlists but you can find them here.

Q.  Why is it that the set list stays almost exactly the same the entire tour? It's a great set regardless but doesn't the band get tired of playing the same songs in the same order night after night?

First time asking a question to the almighty Oracle so fingers crossed for a response!

The production of a show can be very complicated and take a lot of time to prepare to get it perfect. This show particularly doesn't lend itself to much change. I am aware of a very few number acts who change their set during a tour so it isn't unusual not to - it's more usual in fact.
A few songs have been replaced and moved around since the festivals last year and the latter end of the year's dates.
The band buzz so much off playing the songs live to a different crowd every night that no, they don't get bored.
