1) Regarding your first question, this is from the U2 FAQ:
Who or what is Passengers?

Passengers was a side project of U2. In short, it's a musical collaboration by the members of U2 and Brian Eno. It gave U2 a chance to experiment with different "textures" in the music. They were joined for this project by Brian Eno, Howie B, and Pavarotti, and other "passengers", so they didn't call it a "U2 record".

Original Soundtracks 1 started out as being a sequel of sorts to a series of albums called Music for Films that Brian Eno made in the 70's. The idea was for U2 to really open up creatively, to explore more abstract music without being inhibited by expectations of the band. It is also important to note that for perhaps the first time Brian Eno was allowed to lead the band and have an immediate and direct influence on the direction of the music, rather than taking the backseat as a producer. Adam has said that the album was "an opportunity to get all [the] stuff out that there really isn't room for on our own records".

Larry has gone on record as saying he really didn't like the results and found the album over-indulgent. It is interesting to see where they were musically and also note the likely influence it had on the band's later development of Pop (which didn't even have Eno as producer). [MK, JP]
2) The 2 singles from The Unforgettable Fire were Pride (In The Name Of Love) and the title track

3) Yes, One Tree Hill was a single, but only in Australia/New Zealand

C ya!

"Bad" had the Wide Awake In America EP after Live Aid, though.
