Pilot - S1-E1

Other mistake: Throughout the episode, Lucifer's car has a California license plate - but that is, just one. He is missing the one in the front. In the following episode the car does have the regular 2 plates, and when he is pulled over at the beginning (and keeps being around cops all the time), nobody raises an eyebrow at the violation of the code.

Continuity mistake: When Lucifer shows Chloe the handcuffs he freed himself from, in the first shot one of them is open and the other locked, while in the second, both cuffs have been unlocked. (00:20:00)

Continuity mistake: During the scene in the school corridor with Lucifer sitting down and talking to Chloe's daughter, the same extras keep doing erratic back-and-forth for no reason (for instance the girl with a white jacket and pink shoulder bag) or just plain wrong (the kid with the horizontal striped maroon sweater who walks twice past Lucifer early in the convo).

Pilot - S1-E1

Factual error: The record producer is holding a pistol model 1911 or 1911A1 which is a .45 caliber handgun with a standard magazine capacity of 7 +1 rounds, the +1 being loaded in the chamber, however newer magazines hold 8 +1. Therefore, this handgun can hold a maximum of 9 rounds, however the producer fires 10 shots before Lucifer grabs him. Newer 1911 style pistols are now produced in 9mm which have a greater capacity but the pistol held by the producer was a standard 45 ACP judging by the metal and finish. (00:37:38 - 00:39:18)

Continuity mistake: Lucifer walks down the stairs into 2 Vile's mansion; first person he comes across is carrying a glass, wearing a black T-shirt and grey undershirt sticking out. The guy is walking towards Lucifer as if he were going to use the stairs Lucifer is descending, but just vanishes in the following shot, only to reappear at the next cut, taking the stairs as it seemed bound to happen all along.

Continuity mistake: When Lucifer talks to the killer in agony in the car wreck, blood streaks change on his face between shots (in particular, he has blood coming from the corner of his moith in the last shot, from the side, but he had none a moment before, in close-ups). (00:09:40)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, a cop pulls Lucifer over. The car stops with the front wheels on white road markings. When Lucifer is shown taking off again, the street is just not the same, there's no white horizontal lines, and a manhole appears under the car. (00:02:45)

Continuity mistake: As Dr. Martin opens the door to Lucifer at the end, she is leaning against the door with her left hand, but it is in a different position and with no hand on the doorframe in the matching reverse shots. (00:43:50)

Continuity mistake: As the therapist fails to "keep that one in", Chloe in the foreground with Lucifer is looking at her puzzled, hand under her chin. Her hand is nowhere near her face in the following shot. (00:31:10)

Devil Is as Devil Does - S4-E7

Pilot - S1-E1

Question: Lucifer is shot at by Jimmy Barnes 6 times but suffers no harm while Chloe is in the same room, but later episodes show he is not immortal when she is near. What's the deal?

Answer: As Cain theorises in a later episode, it's Chloe's love, not presence. This early on, Chloe had no strong feelings for Lucifer, so had no effect on his immortality. In fact even more recently he's back to being invulnerable around her after speculation that he chose to let himself be vulnerable. So while there's a degree of flexibility / retconning going on, it's all explained in-show.
