Coldplay to Headline Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show

Coldplay Super Bowl 50

Coldplay fans must be in para-para-paradise with this news: The band will headline the Super Bowl 50 halftime show, our sister site Deadline reports.

The news comes after months of speculation about the halftime concert, with rumored performers including Bruno Mars and Maroon 5. In fact, according to the Wall Street Journal, Mars will make an appearance during Coldplay’s show, as might Beyoncé (who sings on the band’s new album, A Head Full of Dreams, out Dec. 4).

The big game on Feb. 7 will be Coldplay’s first Super Bowl performance. The band grabs the baton from Katy Perry, who headlined the most-watched halftime show ever last February.

Super Bowl 50 — taking place at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. — will air on CBS, followed by a live telecast of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert and a special edition of The Late Late Show With James Corden.
