7 is an EP by the Irish rock band U2, released exclusively at Target Stores in the United States in 2002.

Likewise, at the time of its release 7 was priced at almost seven US dollars. The title is also a homage to Three, the group's first release[citation needed].

The single version of "Walk On", which was released on the single with the blue cover, was also featured in concerts, while a live version was released on America: A Tribute to Heroes. In 2002 another mix of "Walk On" called the "Hallelujah mix" (for its coda of hallelujahs) was released on a promotional CD.
