King Crimson Live in Mainz is a live album by the band King Crimson, released through the King Crimson Collectors' Club in March 2001. The album was recorded at Elzer Hof, Mainz, Germany, March 30, 1974.

Like other concerts from the European tour of early 1974, this show was recorded directly from the soundboard. Four tracks ("The Savage", "Arabica", "Atria" and "Trio") were improvisations. The liner notes were written by John Wetton in December 2000.
