The 50th Super Bowl half time show was better than it had any right to be. A largely okay performance by Coldplay was rescued with a stroke of brilliance by Beyonce and Bruno Mars.
It opened with a Coldplay mashup of “Yellow” and “Viva La Vida” with lead singer Chris Martin getting … intimate with the crowd. He dove into fans while singing and keeping things upbeat. The performance then moved into “Paradise” complete with fireworks, streamers, flags and a stadium full of color. Fans held up placards that spelled out “Believe in love.” 
Listen to Lady Gaga sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl 50th event.
