Q.  Hey Oracle so I just watched True Love's music video and I want to know the name of the girl.
Thanks xx

The actor - I believe that's what we call male and female thespians these days - in the True Love video is Jessica Lucas.
I'm not familiar with any of her work but methinks she fits the video well.

Q.  Hello Oracle !
I have watched the music video for A Sky Full Of Stars and let me just say - it is amazing! I love how humble and simple it is, and I also love Chris' smile through the whole thing :)
My question is, though, I noticed he had an iPad attached to his leg, was that any use at all ?
Thanks for answering !
Valou.

It was actually Roadie #42's personal iPad. It had a video of the piano keys playing themselves on it and the music they were busking along to. It was connected to a speaker on Chris's back.

Q.  I watched the A Sky Full of Stars video, and I'm pretty sure I saw Chris Martin in it. Am I right?

Ha ha ha! This made me laugh. I don't know if it's sarcasm or just a joke but it's very funny. We are done with the ASFOS spotting now.

Q.  Watched ASFOS video and I do believe Roadie 42 makes an appearance as well.

Yup, Roadie #42 is in it too but as with Kelly (& Frostie who is also in it), because he got caught in shot. Matt obviously had to be there too but he's in frame more because of where he was waiting to follow the band.

Q.  Is it 'Ask-Oracle-About-The-ASFOS-Music-Video' day?

Pretty much, yes.

Q.  Dear Oracle, I watched the ASFOS video again and I saw Matt McGinn with sunglasses and of course Kelly. Still missing who you mentioned yesterday? Can't wait for the True Love video!

We have a winner! I was thinking of Matt McGinn. For the eagle-eyed, he is leaning against a wall and then follows the band. Kelly isn't known to as many people but yes, he's in there too but in an official working capacity.

Q.  Dear Oracle, were you or Anchorman in ASFOS video ? (Just read your answer among today's questions and it made me think...)
Thanks a lot !

Nope. We weren't in Australia with the band. The video was a very last minute affair so it has to be someone who was already with them.

Q.  Hi Oracle,
Why Phil was in a koala suit on the #ASFOS video?
Thanks!

Was he? I think you are mistaken. I do spy a fan in an elephant costume at the end in the square but that was not scripted. There were no other animal suits that I can see. CORRECTION! I must need my eyes testing (again) because there IS a koala suit and it's not the only animal suit either!
There was somebody in the video that you may recognise but nobody has asked me yet. Maybe that person has not been spotted... Yet.

Q.  Is it too late to tweet an #ASFOSstar to Coldplay? I just got Twitter and missed out on posting it for the band to see.

#ASFOSstar wasn't something we gave a deadline for. We obviously posted a collection of photos already but there's nothing to stop you tweeting yours now.

Q.  Is the beach in the alternate video for Viva la Vida and Yellow the same beach?

No. Yellow's beach is in Dorset ( Studland Bay). The alternative video for Viva was shot in The Hague so I assume the beach was somewhere nearby but it definitely wasn't Dorset.
