I know I ask you questions like every day but this one is good so please answer! In the video Shiver in the background there is a yellow globe. It looks like the album cover from Parachutes! Is it?

There is indeed a yellow globe in the Shiver video and that very one is the one that was photographed for the Parachutes cover.

Q.  Dear Oracle,

My question to you is who is the guitarist playing in Shiver music video, is it Jonny or His brother Tim?

Er, I'm not entirely sure why you would think it's anyone else but Jonny! I know it was a long time ago and he may look slightly different (young) but as Jonny has always been the guitarist in Coldplay it wouldn't make any sense for his brother to be in the video.

Q.  I just wanted to know if there were any plans for Coldplay to start playing Shiver at stadium shows ever again? I hear that there are always signs for that song and that is probably their best song in all their catalogue ever of all time if you catch my drift...they are some of the best musicians I bet they could pull it off!! Thanks! Hope ur days are filled with much splish splashing cuz I know mine are.

Didn't you hear? Shiver was played every night of the Latin American tour with the exception of the first show in Argentina.
They performed it in C Stage as part of the acoustic set. If Guy gets his way they won't be playing it again as he didn't like doing it all that much!

Q.  Why did Coldplay not play Shiver for the Viva La Vida Tour? It's one of their best songs!

There's an interesting Roadie #42 blog
about how after more than 150 shows Shiver got a dusting off and the band gave it a try backstage...
They can't possibly play every song and Shiver just didn't make the final set list.

Q.  Hi I saw a Coldplay video on a music channel once, I haven't seen it since but really liked the song and the video. It looks like they are playing in a studio room, Chris Martin is wearing a Rolling Stones t-shirt. Can you tell me what the song is and where I can see the video?

The song (and video) you're looking for is Shiver. This was the band's debut single with Parlophone after their first release - The Blue Room E.P.
