Safety was the first EP and public release by the British rock band Coldplay. It was recorded over a weekend during May 1998 and intended to be a demo for record companies. Phil Harvey, the band's manager, financed the project for around £1500 and only about fifty copies made it to stores, as they gave most of them away to labels, friends and families.

The songs on this EP have all appeared unaltered on subsequent releases by Coldplay. "Bigger Stronger" and "Such a Rush" are featured on The Blue Room EP, and "No More Keeping My Feet on the Ground" was a B-side on the single release of "Yellow". The cover photo of lead singer Chris Martin was taken by John Hilton, a friend of the band.
