Everything that could be said about the choice of Coldplay to headline the halftime show at Super Bowl 50 was said by the band members themselves Sunday evening — not with their mouths, but with their outfits.
All around the stage at the center of the Levi’s Stadium field, there were bold colors: In the crowd, fans held up blue, orange, red and yellow cards that formed a sunburst. Violinists and cellists from Youth Orchestra L.A. were dressed in matching baby-blue-and-red Windbreakers, clutching instruments painted green and blue and purple and white. Dancers held up floral umbrellas. Even the stage was a kaleidoscope of pastel nature fantasies.
The members of Coldplay? They wore gray, slate blue, musky brown, dusty black. Visually, it made them the void at the center of a riot of exuberance. Such was the case musically as well: Coldplay was the center of the show but functioned more as a stagehand than an actual performer, making sure things were properly aligned so that the night’s true event could go off without a hitch.
Coldplay will have a very high-profile guest star at the Super Bowl.
