Before celebrating the last supper, did our Lord eat the Passover or did he not?

Yes, our Lord ate the Passover meal with His disciples "Now on the first day of the Feast of the Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying to Him, "Where do You want us to prepare for You to eat the Passover? ...So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them; and they prepared the Passover. When evening had come, He sat down with the twelve. Now as they were eating, He said, "Assuredly, I say to you, one of you will betray Me." (Mt 26:17-2) and "Then He said to them, "With fervent desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; for I say to you, I will no longer eat of it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God" (Lk 22:15-16).

Then after the Passover meal our Lord instituted the Lord's Supper (Mt 26:26-29; Mk 14:22-26; Lk 22:14-23; 1 Cor 11:23-26).
