''This is War'' is a December 8, 2009 concept album by American Rock band Music/{{ThirtySecondstoMars}}.

After a lawsuit for not living up to their record contract, 30 Seconds to Mars had to create a new album entirely unauthorized. It was them against the world, and marketing was difficult. This album was the most difficult challenge the band ever faced.

The story behind this album can be seen in the film ''Artifact''.

What came was a prog-rock opus filled with crowd anthem after crowd anthem and general positive reception all around. If it was indeed war, the band triumphed.

The eponymous song was featured during the ending credits of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', released even before the album itself.
