Twitter reacts to Super Bowl halftime show featuring Coldplay, Beyonce & Bruno Mars

Warning: Tweetstorm ahead

For many viewers (author included), the best part of any Super Bowl is definitely the halftime show. For the 50th anniversary of the big game, the NFL pulled out all the stops, securing Coldplay to take the stage alongside both Bruno Mars and Beyonce. As many could have predicted, Coldplay was quickly upstaged by both featured artists, but it didn't really matter; in the end, the show became a colorful ode to performances past with the whole crowd swaying in time to the music. 

Coldplay played a medley of hits "Yellow," "Viva La Vida," "Fix You" and "Adventure of a Lifetime." Bruno Mars performed his smash hit "Uptown Funk" while Beyonce pulled out her so-hot-it's-on-fire new single, "Formation," that she released the night before the Super Bowl. (After the performance, she also announced a new world tour. Tickets go on sale Feb. 9). At one point, Bruno Mars and Beyonce engaged in a very entertaining dance battle of sorts before culminating in a look-back on halftime shows gone by.

Of course, the Twitterverse had much to say about the whole ordeal. Peek below for some of our favorite responses to the big show.

And to top it all off, award-winning actress Taraji P. Henson thought Coldplay was Maroon 5.
