En concert à l'Olympia is the first live album recorded by the French singer Hélène Ségara, and her third overall. It was released in October 2001, and was available first as a box set containing two CDs, then as a DVD. It achieved success in the countries where it was released.

The two CDs were recorded during the singer's first tour which led her at the Olympia of Paris from 23 to 26 October 2000. This live album contains songs from Ségara's first two albums, Cœur de verre and Au Nom d'une Femme, two songs from the musical Notre Dame de Paris in which Ségara portrayed Esméralda, and five tracks as bonus which are cover versions of Ségara's hits in Spanish-language, whose texts were written by the Spanish singer and songwriter Nilda Fernandez.
