You know what — credit where it's due: Chris Martin didn't seem remotely bothered by the fact that Coldplay's shining Super Bowl moment was overshadowed by "special guest performances" from Bruno Mars and Beyoncé.

Everything about the performance — pyro, outfits, choreography, everything — was on point.

And then, right when it seemed like things couldn't get better, Bruno was all, "Stop, wait a minute — Beyoncé hasn't even performed yet."

Cut to: Beyoncé dressed like Michael Jackson, surrounded by black-clad women.

She was in the mood to make a capital-s Statement.

Team Bey came to slay.

And slay they did, showing off their coordination as the pop star sang her new single "Formation."

The ladies, for the record, hella coordinated. Even when Beyoncé almost fell she looked more graceful than you have in your entire life.

And, as if all that weren't enough, Bey and Bruno joined forces on stage for an amazing dance party.

By the time Chris Martin and co. returned it was clear that Coldplay were headliners in name only — the show belonged to Bey and Bruno.
