Liverpool managed to take the tie to extra-time after a first-half header from Georginio Wijnaldum.
Jurgen Klopp's side dominated throughout the game but couldn't find a second in normal time.
However, Roberto Firmino netted four minutes into the first half of extra-time to give his side the lead.
But Atletico substitute Marcos Llorente netted a brace to stun Anfield as the half came to a close.
Alvaro Morata then added a third deep into added time to give his side victory on the night alongside progression to the next round.
