Frontman Chris Martin said: "One of our favourite places to play in the world is a place called Glastonbury Festival, which is a big music festival that happens in England.

"It's full of colour and pageantry, and it's an amazing sort of spiritual home of music in England.

"We wanted to bring that sort of vibe to the Super Bowl half-time show. We can't compete with amazing dance routines and all of that. We have to try to do what comes naturally to us, which is to try and provide a bit of fun and a great atmosphere for people to come and be together and be communal and enjoy the general experience."

The group are set to throwback to Beyoncé's Super Bowl set, teaming up with the superstar to have her make a special guest appearance, with the Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles also set to take to the field.

Rumours are also swirling that Bruno Mars could join for a special rendition of a track at some point in the set.

The Super Bowl this year comes live from Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
