Coldplay's Chris Martin has been reassured by his 11-year-old daughter Apple to not worry about his band's Super Bowl 50 concert - because if something goes wrong it'll only be remembered as an Internet meme

Chris Martin has been told by his daughter Apple not to worry if Coldplay's Super Bowl 50 performance goes wrong - because it'll only be remembered as an Internet meme.

The band - Chris, Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland and Will Champion - will provide the half-time entertainment for the NFL championship final between the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos on February 7.

Chris and his bandmates do have a few nerves about playing to such a massive audience at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, and to approximately 115 million viewers watching on TV, but 11-year-old Apple - his child with ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow - has reassured him if the worst happens it'll just become a joke that goes round the web for a week or so.

Speaking to 'CBS Sunday Morning', the singer said: "My daughter said the sweetest thing (to me). She said, 'How are you feeling about the Super Bowl?' I said, 'Of course we're a little bit nervous.' She said, 'Dad, the worst that could happen is that you'll get turned into a meme.'

"The fact we make it onto our kids' playlists still, is good. They're not impressed with anything."

Chris, 38, also let slip the show will be a greatest hits set condensed into 12 minutes, which he joked he thinks they just have enough material to fill, and confirmed that Beyoncé and Bruno Mars are to be their special guests.

He shared: "I love the whole concept of trying to present your entire musical life in 12 and a half minutes. We've possibly got 11 good minutes. So we have some special guests and they'll cover the rest."

Revealing who the guest stars are, he said: "There's a spot on the stage which may be Beyoncé's footprint ... And we could look for a Bruno Mars one."
