Not quite. A coup is defined as "a sudden, violent, and illegal seizure of power from a government."

The rioters were trying to seize the US government's power to certify election results and certify Biden as the winner of the election and were attempting to forcefully demand that Pence, etc. object to the certifications of the electoral votes.
I understand that it was sudden and violent, but these idiots had no ideas on seizing power. Stealing a lectern and occupying a government building does not cease the existence of the government. A lot of their slogans show they they wanted to do something, but I don't think any of them actually thought out the how.
