The British rockers will be headlining the big gig in Santa Clara, California on 7 February (16), and bosses at Pepsi, the company sponsoring the show, have confirmed Coldplay will be joined by R&B star Beyonce.

Coldplay is expected to bring the Crazy In Love singer out for a live rendition of Hymn for the Weekend, the track she features on, on the the group's latest album, A Head Full of Dreams.

This won't be Beyonce's first time at the Super Bowl - in 2013, she headlined her own half-time show, which featured a surprise Destiny's Child reunion.

Meanwhile, sources tell Entertainment Tonight that Bruno Mars, who headlined the 2014 half-time show, is also expected to make an appearance with Coldplay.
