Peace, love and revolution.
These were the prevailing themes during Super Bowl 50’s halftime show featuring Coldplay, Bruno Mars and Beyonce.
It all kicked off with a lowkey Chris Martin singing the opening to “Viva la Vida” on his haunches while fans ran around him onto the field.
Once Martin took to the stage, which doubled as a video screen pulsing with a swirl of colorful flowers and sunbursts, he and the band quickly ran through a few hits, including “Adventure of a Lifetime” while Martin jumped as though equipped with a pogo stick.
The energy on the field soared even higher when Martin introduced Mars, who sang and grooved with a backup band and dancers to “Uptown Funk.”
Dressed in black leather and gold chains, Mars worked the stage in a frenzy of choreography that could only be matched by one person …
It was Martin who sang “When I ruled the world,” but Beyonce prepared to take over the reins as she marched onto the field with army of black-clad dancers and drummers wearing revolutionary-style berets.
Bey launched into “Formation,” her first new song since 2014, which debuted only Saturday.
She almost took a tumble during the routine but quickly recovered.
