Bruno Mars, as reported in September, is also slated to take the stage as well.

Meanwhile, Coldplay's seventh studio album, A Head Full of Dreams, drops on Dec. 4, and features the Beyonce collaboration, "Hymn for the Weekend." Could that be a sign Queen Bey is a potential Super Bowl performer as well?!

"Bruno would love Beyoncé to perform again, but nothing has been said about that yet," a source told ET in October.

Super Bowl 50 will air Sunday, February 7, 2015 on CBS.
