The Super Bowl 50 halftime show took place on February 7, 2016, at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California as part of Super Bowl 50. It was headlined by Coldplay with special guest performers Beyoncé and Bruno Mars, who headlined the Super Bowl XLVII andSuper Bowl XLVIII  halftime shows, respectively.


Coldplay, Rihanna, and Katy Perry were considered as potential acts for the Super Bowl XLIX halftime show in 2015. Perry was soon confirmed as the headliner of the halftime show in October 2014. In late November, 2015, reports surfaced stating that multiple acts would perform during the halftime show. Coldplay was confirmed as the lead half time performer for Super Bowl 50 on December 3, 2015, one day before the release of their seventh studio album A Head Full of Dreams. It was confirmed that Beyoncé and Bruno Mars would join Coldplay as special guests.
