"Questing, Not Coasting" is a song by Newcastle-upon-Tyne band Maxïmo Park. It is the second single to be released from their third studio album, Quicken the Heart on 13 July 2009.

The band stated on their website that "Over the last few weeks we've been playing this song live and audiences have responded in a very emotional fashion, so it makes perfect sense for it to be the next single."[1]

It shows a different side to the band than the recent "The Kids Are Sick Again," which newcomers to the band may have heard on the radio. The B-sides are "Too Many Letters" and "That Beating Heart," which has been played most nights of their recent tour.[1]
