National Football League to announce Coldplay as headliner of Super Bowl halftime show

LOS ANGELES — Coldplay is headlining the Super Bowl halftime show.

The game is set for Feb. 7 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. The British rock band, which is releasing a new album Friday, will perform during halftime of Super Bowl, according to a person familiar with the production who asked for anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter.

The NFL is due to announce the halftime performer Thursday night during the prime-time matchup between the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers.
