I think by far the biggest issue with Coldplay coming on is that, no, they're not BAD, but they're just kind of... there. Y'know? They just don't have nearly the excitement that is needed for a halftime show of the biggest, most exciting game of the year. Not in their old music nor their new music have they ever gotten me excited for anything. But Muse. MUSE. With incredible songs that'd be amazing to be played in such a huge arena such as Knights of Cydonia, Take a Bow, Stockholm Syndrome, Plug in Baby, and even the new ones like Psycho and Reapers. They're basically known for making a bunch of noise, which is exactly what is need for the Super Bowl. - uofmfan1221
