After the very successful Run 1, the LHC accelerator and experiments had undergone intensive consolidation, maintenance and upgrade activities during the first long shutdown (LS1). This presentation will briefly report the major LS1 experiment activities and review the readiness for Run 2 data taking.

Observations of exotic structures in the j\psi p channel, that we refer to as pentaquark-charmonium states, in Lamda_b to j\psi p K^- decays are presented. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 3 inverse femtobarns acquired with the LHCb detector from 7 and 8 TeV pp collisions. An amplitude analysis is performed on the three-body final state that reproduces all the angular...
