We've been looking forward to Superbowl 50's halftime show for a while now. The show is bound to be important for a myriad of reasons, most notably it representing one of the last performances of Coldplay before they retire. The band has had an incredible career that's reached all aspects of pop music.

It's allowed the group to collaborate with many types of artists, like the queen herself Beyonce. She was the perfect artist to select for the show, especially considering how influential and powerful her own Superbowl performance was. To hype up today, she even put out a brand new single and video, "Formation."


Tonight's performance was awesome; an extended performance of a few Coldplay tracks including "Viva La Vida" and some others. Afterwards, Bruno Mars came out to give a scorching rendition of "Uptown Funk" with a team of back up dancers. And of course, Beyonce blessed us with a ton of fire, and a wide-scale performance of "Formation." She hopped on stage, danced momentarily with Bruno Mars to "Uptown Funk," and then Chris Martin came back out to close out the show, singing parts of "Uptown Funk," and when a montage of past half-time performances hit, he went into some killer renditions of "Purple Rain," "Beautiful Day," and the band's own hit "Clocks." You seriously couldn't ask for much else in a Super Bowl halftime performance, and all three artists came with the heat.

Also incredible is that Bey announced an entire Formation World Tour. Pre-sale starts February 9, and general on sale goes up February 16. Watch the performance below.
