The Would-Be Prince of Darkness - S1-E3

Plot hole: During the credits, Chloe said of the victim "coroner puts her time of death between 1 and 3am", and she does indeed ask Ty's obsessive fan / ex-gf where has she been during that timeframe. When she looks at the security tape, the timecode starts rolling at 22:18 and goes on "for 3 hours." That does not account for the time of the murder at all, she has no alibi for the second half of the suspected timeframe! Not to mention, she said she saw Ty kiss the victim. When could she possibly have seen that? It's unlikely that before 10pm Ty was already drunk and getting randy with the girl, with the house full of guests. (00:25:00)

Lady Parts - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: Chloe has a bruise on her left eyebrow and a cut on her right after the fight in the bar, but when she grabs Lucifer's phone the cut and bruise have swapped sides on her face, and then when she storms off they go back to their original sides. (00:30:48 - 00:31:30)

Lucifer, Stay. Good Devil. - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Chloe is being debriefed by her ex about the crime scene. There's a close-up of the photographer who will be the key of the case, being physically pushed away by a policeman. The scene goes on with him in the background in many shots, all on his own, snapping away as if nothing happened. (00:08:55)

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.

The Angel of San Bernardino - S3-E20

Other mistake: Lucifer's obsession with Bones is highlighted here when he confronts someone as a killer only to realise it's because he's an actor who played a killer in the Bones episode Intern in the Incinerator (a role Scott Rinker did play in real life). Kevin Alejandro (Dan) and Aimee Garcia (Ella) also played roles in Bones, which Lucifer never comments on. In fact so did Jeremiah Birkett (Lee Garner, "Mr. Said Out Bitch").

Pilot - S1-E1

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)

They're Back, Aren't They? - S3-E1

Audio problem: When the cops draw their Glocks, they make a cocking sound. Glocks are striker fired, there are no safeties or hammers on the exterior to manually operate for the handgun to make a noise. (00:03:20)

Lucifer, Stay. Good Devil. - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, the preacher is walking around with the donation mug. The first kid to put a few bucks in does it across two shots and has a very notable yellow hand-held device when he puts the money in that was not there in the first shot. (00:02:00)

Pilot - S1-E1

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). (00:24:50 - 00:25:50)

Stewardess Interruptus - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: When Chloe tells Lucifer that her main priority is the case and that nothing is going to happen between them, her hair on the right side of her face tucks itself behind her right ear between shots. It then falls down again, then tucks itself once more.

THGhost

#TeamLucifer - S1-E12

Character mistake: When trying to decipher what the letters from the dermal implants spell, Lucifer rearranges the letters and says "Hilii Fircus, it means 'children of the goat.'" However, the correct phrase was Filii Hircus, not Hilii Fircus. (00:13:27)

Dan: I don't know whether to laugh or to shoot you.
Lucifer: Surprise me.

Everything's Okay - S4-E1

Question: Can somebody explain to me how in Season 4, it's stated that Chloe disappeared after seeing Lucifer's devil face. Apparently the cops rushed into the shootout scene with Cain and took her away, and she hasn't seen Lucifer since. What about in season 3 episode 25 Boo Normal when she worked a case with Lucifer and Ella. Ella confided in Chloe that she sees a ghost and Chloe believed her, and she said she's seen some crazy stuff herself lately. So what's up with her vanishing when she seen him.

Answer: Boo Normal and Once Upon a Time were going to be part of season 4, then the show got cancelled (before being picked up elsewhere). As such they were added on to the end of season three as "bonus" episodes, hence the continuity being off. But not really a mistake, just a quirk of broadcasting. Boo Normal was originally going to be between the episodes "High School Poppycock" and "Infernal Guinea Pig" in season 3 before being slated for season 4, presumably because aside from the point you've raised, it was fairly flexible, continuity-wise.
