Bruno Mars will play alongside Coldplay on Game Day, but there’s no word yet on what other performers Pepsi has lined up… Could your favorite artist be one of them?
Looks like British rock band, Coldplay, is set to take the stage at Levi’s stadium as the headliners in the Pepsi Super Bowl 50 Halftime show. With the recent release of their new album and the extra hype surrounding this Golden Super Bowl, Coldplay has fans itching in anticipation! The band’s debut Super Bowl performance means that Chris and crew will join the ranks of Super Bowl all stars including Beyonce, Madonna, and their fellow Brits, The Who and The Rolling Stones.
If Coldplay isn’t enough to get you pumped for the Halftime show, have no fear! Joining Martin on the big stage will be pop star Bruno Mars. The singer of “Uptown Funk” is back after his debut performance at the Super Bowl Halftime show in 2014, where he performed with guests Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Katy Perry. This year, the NFL invited the pop guru for a return gig, and it’s rumored that some other special guests will be joining him in the show!
So the real question is…which mystery guests will snatch a spot next to Bruno and Coldplay?
Here’s a look at the rumors — plus our very own hopes and dreams!
Word on the street has it that one or more of these world-famous celebs might hit the halftime stage come February 7th:
Considering that she’s the featured female vocalist in Coldplay’s “Hymn For The Weekend,” there’s no reason not to assume Beyonce will be on stage with Coldplay at the SB50 Halftime performance…If Beyonce does show up, it will come as no surprise as she and Chris Martin are also long-time friends.

Several sources have reported that Taylor Swift might join Bruno Mars on stage. Rumor has it that Swift has been asked by the NFL to be one of the starring performances in the SB50 Halftime show, but that they are still waiting for an answer from her. You’d think that a chance to play in the Super Bowl would be beyond her “Wildest Dreams”…
What could be better than a Taylor Swift and Britney Spears duo at the Halftime show? Nothing! According to HollywoodLife.com, Britney and Tay might take the stage together at Super Bowl 50! How epic would that be? The battle’s on as the NFL has reached out to them both, but neither has confirmed their appearance in the big event.
There’s also some buzz saying that Maroon 5 will appear in the show. Lead singer, Adam Levine, is said to be having some important talks in negotiating his way to being one of the Halftime performers, as claimed by E! Online. Sounds like the NFL might have something sweet and “Sugar”-y up their sleeves given their lack of response to the press about the band’s candidacy for the Halftime show….
According to LatinPost.com, Bruno Mars invited British singer Adele to be one of the special guests during the 12 minute Halftime show slot. The duo teamed up for her new song “All I Ask” on her latest album so the invitation makes sense. After Mars’ countless attempts to get Adele to perform with him, could SB 50 be the moment that he (and we!) have been waiting for? The singer turned down his invitation to play with him back in the 2014 Super Bowl.
Will she turn him down again? I guess we’ll just have to wait to find out…
While they may be “Made in the AM,” One Direction might make a late-night performance at Super Bowl 50. According to Business Standard, the English-Irish band is being considered for the Big Game Halftime show! If so, it would be their farewell performance before the group takes an extended break.
Our SB50 Halftime Show Wish List
With all this talk about guest performers, we’ve compiled our wish list of the top three acts we’d like to see on stage (or at least on our TVs) when Super Bowl Sunday rolls around.
There would be nothing better than seeing this classic American rock band from Vegas light up the night with their all time classic “Midnight Show,” at the Halftime show!
Remember that most talked about American vocal group of the 90’s? Well, we’d like to see these studs take on the Halftime show with one of their old time hits, “I Want It That Way.” Maybe it’s time to reach out to the NFL with this request…
What better way to spice up the Halftime show than with an all star American blues rock musician? With 15 solo albums, and performances alongside classic musicians like B.B. King, this is one artist that we think is definitely worthy of the Super Bowl stage!
Don’t want to miss the big music event of the year?
Make sure to catch Coldplay and the special guests (whomever they may be) during CBS’s broadcast of the Big Game on February 7, 2016, or buy Super Bowl tickets and see them live at Levi’s stadium in Santa Clara, CA.
