Time Traveller is a five-disc compilation album by The Moody Blues. The set is presented in strict chronological order, beginning with the 1966 addition of Justin Hayward and John Lodge (omitting the earlier Denny Laine and Clint Warwick-led R&B period), shortly before the release of Days of Future Passed, and continuing through 1993's A Night at Red Rocks with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra. The set includes several previously unreleased or rare tracks, songs from the Hayward/Lodge album Blue Jays, and a solo track by Hayward.

The bonus fifth disc contains a contribution to the FIFA album Soccer Rocks The Globe (otherwise unavailable on a Moody Blues album), plus eight live recordings that were cut from the original 1993 release of A Night at Red Rocks with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra (but later included in the 2003 2-CD deluxe re-release of A Night at Red Rocks).

The fifth disc was omitted from the 1996 and later re-releases of Time Traveller, thus this version of the set ends with the Keys of the Kingdom sessions.
