Being asked to perform at the Super Bowl is obviously a rite of passage for the world’s biggest artists—just ask BeyoncéU2Madonna, Prince, and last year’s headliner, Katy Perry. After initial reports that Taylor Swift might hit the stage in February, reports from the Wall Street Journal and Billboard this afternoon suggest the NFL has locked down Coldplay for the 2016 show. It’s not Tay, but we’ll take it.

Neither the band nor the NFL has officially confirmed yet whether the report is true, but the timing actually makes perfect sense—Coldplay is set to release A Head Full of Dreams, the band’s seventh studio album, tomorrow. Coldplay’s band members, Chris Martin, Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland, and Will Champion are also tipped to be joined by Bruno Mars for the show.

Here’s the super exciting part though: WSJ‘s also reporting that Beyoncé is “in talks” and could be making a special appearance during Coldplay’s performance. Obviously, we’ll be tuning in just for that when the game kicks off on February 7.
