Live at Donington is a live album by the English heavy metal band Iron Maiden, documenting their second headlining appearance at the Monsters of Rock festival at Donington Park, a motorsport circuit located near Castle Donington. The concert took place on 22 August 1992 during the Fear of the Dark Tour in front of a crowd of almost 80,000. It was originally only released as a limited edition triple vinyl set, with a 2 disc CD release only in Brazil, Canada, Holland, Italy, South Korea, UK and Japan,[1] but became a regular part of the band's CD catalogue with the 1998 reissues. It was also issued on VHS under the title Donington Live 1992.

Guitarist Adrian Smith joins the band on this version of "Running Free".[2]

The 1998 reissue of this album has different artwork. Instead of the white cover with the logo, they put the original concert poster by Mark Wilkinson on the front cover.[3] Also, the track list was spread out differently, to make room for a multimedia section on disc 2.
