Q.  Dear Oracle, I truly feel I've known you for a long time. I don't know why really. Maybe we were friends in some other lifetime? Haha. What's playin' on the telly beside Chris during Viva la Vida performances? Could you post or direct us to the clip? It's quite interesting... And I think the band is playing different instruments. Am I right?

Yes you're right though they're not actually playing the instruments for real. The television has been a featured prop during the Viva tour.

Q.  Do the guys decide which TV shows or ads they will allow their songs to be played on?

Also, did the "grandmother" ever contact you to say which show she was going to? I'm not a granny but older than most in the crowd and I'm proudly driving many hours to go see Coldplay this summer.

They don’t decide on TV programmes. Many are covered by blanket agreements anyway (clearance would be needed if it was to be released on DVD). They do decide on adverts. They haven’t as yet endorsed a product or featured in a commercial other than the iTunes campaign last year. Trailers are not the same and they don’t choose those either. They sometimes discuss which films can/can’t use their music.
I'm still waiting to hear from Lynn...
