Rockpalast is a live album by British progressive rock band Porcupine Tree, named after the eponymous music festival it was recorded at on 19 November 2005 (see 2005 in music) at the Live Music Hall in Köln, Germany. It was also filmed for a Rockpalast TV special, but not all songs made the broadcast. It is only available to download on the band's official website, and cannot be purchased in stores. The performance relies almost entirely on Deadwing and In Absentia material, with only one older song making the set list. The performances of "Futile" and "Radioactive Toy" were later included as bonus material on the Arriving Somewhere... DVD.
