Los Angeles - Coldplay is headlining the Super Bowl halftime show.

The British rock band, which released a new album on Friday, will perform during halftime of the Super Bowl, said a spokesperson for Pepsi, which is sponsoring the halftime show.

The Super Bowl is set for 7 February at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

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

Katy Perry starred in the most-watched Super Bowl halftime show in history earlier this year, when more than 118 million viewers tuned in to see her perform with Lenny Kravitz and her now-famous dancing sharks.

Previous halftime headliners include Bruno Mars, Prince, Beyoncé, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen and the Rolling Stones.
