Off the Map is a VHS and DVD released by the American alternative rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers in 2001, two years following the release of their seventh studio album, Californication. The video runs as a full concert but is edited to include parts from various concerts from the 2000s North American tour.

One song, "What Is Soul", was written earlier by George Clinton of Funkadelic and was released in 2002 as a B-side on the single "By The Way". Although the lyrics are the similar to the original Funkadelic song, the riff played by Flea and John Frusciante is from another Funkadelic song "Mommy, Whats A Funkadelic?". The band had been playing this song live since the mid-1980s - a version appears on the 1988 video "Red Hot Skate Rock", played with Hillel Slovak.

While being the first official live release from the band, it also is their only full live CD/DVD to have live performances of a song from the albums Freaky Styley, Uplift Mofo Party Plan or One Hot Minute. Off the Map is praised by longtime fans as representing the band's once diverse setlist, which was more or less whittled down to selections from Blood Sugar Sex Magik, Californication and By The Way on the following tour.

There are, however, live versions of the EMI era and One Hot Minute songs on the B-sides of some singles, and a few on the I'm With You Official Tour Downloads as well.

In the middle of "Me and My Friends", Foo Fighters members Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins prank Chad Smith in revenge for Smith's pranks prior to the show, which causes the band to screw up at the end.
