In the set up you said that the prisoners were all told they were marked with either Green or Blue.

aha !!!!

(just thoughts. it's not *that* big an "aha".)
Spoiler:
maybe the "new information" that pdurrant mentioned is the fact that so far, no-one has left. because maybe prisoner N2 didn't know that he was only the second one ; for all he knew, there might have been 50 before him of whom 49 had managed to leave. right ?
