The "Uptown Funk" singer was on the big stage just two years ago for Super Bowl XLVIII with special guests Red Hot Chili Peppers, followed by Katy Perry last year.

This time around, a source confirmed, Mars was asked to "curate" the halftime show, meaning we could probably expect some impressive guests to join him, if he agrees.

Following the massive success of Mars' "Uptown Funk" collaboration with Mark Ronson, he is currently working on new material that could line up with this big performance.

Reps for Mars and the NFL had not responded to Billboard's request for comment at time of publishing.
