Report: Coldplay to headline Super Bowl 50 halftime show
Coldplay will headline the Super Bowl 50 halftime show on Feb. 7 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., Dennis K. Berman of The Wall Street Journal reports.
The NFL is expected to officially announce the Super Bowl halftime act during Thursday night's game between the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions.
Other rumored performers for the upcoming Super Bowl included Taylor Swift, Maroon 5 and a possible return by Bruno Mars, who was the halftime star of Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium.
Coldplay will be the first band featured at the Super Bowl halftime show since the Red Hot Chili Peppers joined Mars on stage. The British rock band is comprised of Chris Martin, Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland, and Will Champion.
Bruno Mars is also reportedly slated to perform at this season's Super Bowl.
Coldplay's A Head Full of Dreams album will be released in stores on Dec. 4. Beyoncé, who is also featured on the new album, is reportedly in talks to make a guest appearance, according to the WSJ.
Last year's show featured Katy Perry as the headliner with appearances by Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliott.
