Since the breakup of the Beatles in 1970, the former members of the band have been involved in various collaborations with one other, including:

  • Album and single recordings involving more than one ex-Beatle (as musicians or in other roles such as producer);
  • Live performances.

These are listed in the tables below. Collaborations that began before the breakup are included for historical interest. The start date of the act of collaboration, e.g., the recording start date, governs the initial display sequence. Other display sequences may be seen by clicking the buttons in the column headers.
