The NFL put out all the stops for the 50th Super Bowl, including an extravagant halftime show that mostly lived up to the hype. Coldplay, Beyonce and Bruno Mars were the main performers this year.
The show started with a performance of "Viva La Vida" after a brief rendition of "Yellow." It then segued into short snippets of his other more popular songs, along with colorful umbrella displays on the field.
Soon enough, the show shifted to guest star Bruno Mars, who opened up with his 2015 smash hit "Uptown Funk." Right afterwards, Beyonce made her appearance with "Formation," the new single she unexpectedly debuted the day before the game.
Eventually, all three performers joined together on the stage for a brief matchup of their songs, before Colplay was left alone again.
The final segment of the show was devoted to the 50th anniversary of the halftime show, with a montage of previous years' performances flashing by, while everyone joined together for the last uplifting image.
