Then and Now is a live album by British progressive rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer, released in 1998.

It brings together two separate periods of the band's career and places them back-to-back. First is the legendary California Jam performance (the "Then"), which took place at the Ontario Motor Speedway in Ontario, California on 6 April 1974. Second a collection of recordings from the 1997 to 1998 reunion tour (the "Now").

Most of the band's best known pieces are present with "Karn Evil 9: First Impression, Part 2," "Take a Pebble" and "Lucky Man" appearing twice as part of each period's set lists.
