They are on all seats. They were used during the opening ceremony to make various light effects, and presumably will be used in the closing one too.
I was at both sessions yesterday and although I was a bit miffed that my expensive tickets didn't get me anywhere near the 100m straight, I still got very good views and the atmosphere was absolutely amazing. Thoroughly enjoyed my day and looking forward to watching the rest of the action on TV this week.
