Coldplay Backing Off Oasis Showdown?

Coldplay have reportedly changed the release date of upcoming single Fix You to avoid direct competition with Oasis' The Importance of Being Idle.
A source told the Star: "Coldplay have moved Fix You back to a September release because their current single Speed of Sound is still getting such great airplay on the radio.
"I'm sure they are aware that Oasis were due to release on the same day, but that probably didn't affect their decision."
Another interpretation is that it is to avoid a clash such as that between Oasis and Blur in 1995 with Roll With It and Country House respectively.
