How to make a video like Coldplay Up&Up?

Please watch this official video Up&Up Coldplay: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BPNTC7uZYrI .
I have a few questions how it's done.
1. Starting at 0:07 - They've put a circle green sheet into washing machine?
2. 0:10, 0:18, 1:08, 1:55 etc. - I'm pretty sure that these scenes weren't shooting on green screen, they've just erased some area and mixed it with another scenes - but how to do that?
3. 0:40, 0:52, 2:07 - ?
4. 3:30 - With green screen or without?

I'd like to do the similar scenes using only: DaVinci Resolve, Fusion, Blender, iMovie and PS. Could you recommend some tutorials how to do these scenes using mentioned above apps?

This is all about matting and compositing, and could be built mainly with Blackmagic Fusion.

I would start by checking out the free Fusion compositing tutorials on YouTube, and be prepared that it will take a LOT of practice to become good enough to produce visuals like the ones from this Coldplay video.
