Coldplay Rocks Colorful Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show With Bruno Mars and Beyonce

That’s how you rock the Super Bowl! Coldplay hit the stage at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, on Sunday, February 7, with a killer Super Bowl 50 halftime show.

The British rock band, led by frontman Chris Martin, didn’t show any sign of nerves throughout the colorful performance, which featured stellar appearances from Beyoncé and Bruno Mars.

In front of an audience of 68,500 people (and millions of viewers at home), Coldplay kicked off their set with “Viva la Vida.”

Martin, 38, strutted his way across the stage, as bandmates Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion failed to miss a beat while performing some of their biggest hits, including “Paradise” and “Adventure of a Lifetime.”

Mars, 30, joined the band with Mark Ronson for an epic performance of their smash single “Uptown Funk.” The entertainer, who headlined the Super Bowl halftime show in 2014, couldn’t seem to stop his feet from moving as he showed off his impeccable dance moves.


Beyoncé, 34, also took the stage for the live debut of her brand-new single, “Formation,” which was released on Saturday, February 6. The superstar looked stunning in a black bodysuit, as she danced alongside a massive group of dancers.
