Q.  Hi Oracle, I saw Chris posted a picture on twitter of 'his view inside the studio'. Why were they at a studio? Thanks.

Well Walter, you know that thing that musicians usually go into a studio for? Well, that's why. That's not unusual by the way but that's all I will say.
The eagle-eyed amongst you who also follow Jon Hopkins will have seen his recent photo tweets about a studio too and whaddya know there he is in the background of Chris' pic.

Q.  Where's Mylo Xyloto recorded? The Bakery or the Beehive? They are both not used anymore, aren't they?

It was recorded at both the Bakery and the Beehive and actually, they are both still used.

Q.  Do Chris/Coldplay call their studio The Bakery because of Chris' love for Sherlock Holmes? Also I went the the 2nd Houston show and am seriously still speechless. That was truly the greatest night of my LIFE. I've loved Coldplay since I was 10 and 9 years later have not stopped. I hope you can relay this message to Coldplay and tell them how much they truly mean to me. Their music has helped me in my good times and bad and I will never be able to repay them for their musical genius. I myself am a musician and til this day have never been able to write a decent song and continue being in awe of their intellect. Please tell them thank you for what they do and that they are truly inspirational, spectacular and the GREATEST musicians of my time.

Do you mean because of Baker Street? The street is named after the builder who laid the street out (William Baker). The bakery used to be an actual bakery so that's how it got its name.
Jonny is a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes too by the way.

Q.  Hello Oracle!
Is the band's studio (The Beehive/Bakery) truly located in Northern London, particularly Camden Town area?
This past weekend I was in London for the first time and had a blast. Such an amazing city. I looked on the internet for pictures and locations of the studios, and I think that I found the right area.
Are you able to confirm that I was at the right place?

It's located in North London yes but not technically in Camden Town. From your description you were at the right place but the band wouldn't have been there though (they're not presently there either). Aw I hope you didn't spend too much time waiting when there are so many more fun things to do in London.
