As we have already reported, Magnus Carlsen has named four GMs who had been helping him during the match in Sochi: Peter Heine Nielsen, Jon Ludvig Hammer, Laurent Fressinet and Michael Adams. Today the World Champion has revealed the supposedly full list of his helpers in his blog

'I’m very grateful also to Garry Kasparov for valuable advice before and during the match and some really good help from my friends (and former European Champions) Ian Nepomniachtchi and Vladimir Potkin who was having a training camp at the player hotel in preparation for Ian’s participation in the Russian Super Final starting later this week.
Thinking back one year; in addition to several of the above seconds, Pavel Eljanov contributed significantly before and during the Chennai match'.

During the match, the Carlsen's seconds team (Hammer, Fressinet and Adams) was located in the Norwegian resort of Kragero helping him remotely. Nielsen (Carlsen's main coach) was present in Sochi.
