Live on Earth is the first full-length live album released by Melbourne band The Cat Empire. (The band had previously released an EP disc titled Live @ Adelphia).

The album is a compilation of tracks recorded at shows between August 2006 and December 2008. It included songs recorded at venues in Australia, France, the UK, the USA and Canada. The album was originally scheduled to be released on 28 February 2009 in Australia, but was officially released a week earlier (though many retailers released the album days before the 21st.)

Live on Earth was available with a signed album cover via online pre-order.

The first single from the album, "How to Explain?", was released on the iTunes Store on 13 February 2009. The album also features a French-language cover version of the Eagles song "Hotel California" recorded in Montreal, Canada.
