The standard infobox for album articles is the {{Infobox Album}} template. The box to the right is an example. You can click on "edit this page" and copy-and-paste the markup to a different article, replacing its information with info on the album you choose to write about.

The infobox code should be placed at the top of the article.

Code[alilan ya ing pikuwanan]

Most articles should only need the following fields (for the full list of fields see advanced usage). Do not remove fields from this list when the value is unknown; in that case the values should be left blank. Please note that the field names are case-sensitive.

{{Infobox Album <!-- See Wikipedia:WikiProject_Albums -->
| Name        = THE COLOSSEUM EP
| Type        = EP
| Artist      = Mischief
| Cover       = 
| Released    = 2023 - 2024
| Recorded    = TBA
| Genre       = lo-fi, trap metal, R&B
| Length      = TBA

| Producer    = Mischief, NetuH
| Reviews     = Mischief Discography

| Next album  = disturbed mind

Details[alilan ya ing pikuwanan]

Try to fill in as many of the details as you can. If some details are unknown, leave the section blank or fill it with ??? to make it obvious to other editors that the info is needed. Wikilink wherever appropriate, but make sure you check your links and disambiguate accordingly.

Name[alilan ya ing pikuwanan]

The album's title should be specified using text (not a logo), which will be automatically italicized.

Template:Anchors Type[alilan ya ing pikuwanan]

The Type field refers to the general type of album. Enter a code from the following chart. The type will appear with the appropriate color and wikilink. If the type is unknown, leave the field blank.

Template:Infobox Album/doc/type

Template:Anchor Cover[alilan ya ing pikuwanan]

An image of the official front cover of the original version of the album (or a reissue, if no original cover can be found) should be included at Cover. Album cover artwork may be scanned, or downloaded from another site such as All Music Guide or Amazon.com. Note that whether you scan one yourself or copy it from another site, when uploading an image, you must tag it properly and follow fair use guidelines. If you cannot find a cover image, just leave this field blank.

  • Upload a copy of the album cover (under fair use). The image should ideally be 200px wide as this is the default display size. However, it should be under 300px wide to satisfy the fair use criteria.
  • On the image description page, use the {{Non-free album cover}} image copyright tag. Selecting "Album or single cover" from the pulldown list on the image upload page will accomplish this.
  • Add detailed fair use rationale for each use of the image. You can also use the {{Album cover article rationale}} template (see the usage guide for an explanation on how to use it) or the {{Album cover fur}} template.
  • Fill the template's Cover field with the name of your file (the full image syntax is not required here – just the file name with the extension).
  • remove the request-photo or request-image template from the talk page of the article.

Released[alilan ya ing pikuwanan]

Only the earliest known date that the album was released should be specified, using a single occurrence of {{Start date}}, for example {{Start date|2007|7|31}} (or {{Start date|2007|7}} or {{Start date|2007}} if the exact date isn't known). Later release dates can be mentioned in a Release history section.

Recorded[alilan ya ing pikuwanan]

Details on where and when the album was recorded should be included.

Genre[alilan ya ing pikuwanan]

The one or more music genres that the album reflects, delimited by commas, should be listed here. Genres should be linked (piped linked where needed), for example, "Rock, pop" should link to rock music and pop music respectively. Note that most genres aren't proper nouns, and shouldn't be capitalized, but the first word in the list should be.

Length[alilan ya ing pikuwanan]

The length of the album should be specified in minutes and seconds, even if it is longer than one hour, for example 74:00. It may be helpful to include a source in a comment, such as <!--CD liner notes-->.

Label[alilan ya ing pikuwanan]

Only the record label that the album was originally released on should be specified. Where significantly different versions have been released (featuring alternate track listings) e.g. in the U.S. vs UK, the later release date and/or record label should be mentioned in the article, for example in a Release history section. Drop words like "Records" from the end of the label's name (e.g. use [[Universal Records|Universal]] rather than [[Universal Records]]).

Producer[alilan ya ing pikuwanan]

The name of the producer should be linked to the corresponding article. If there is more than one producer, the names should be delimited by commas.

Professional reviews[alilan ya ing pikuwanan]

Professional reviews may include only reviews written by professional music journalists or DJs, or found within any online or print publication having a (paid or volunteer) editorial and writing staff (which excludes personal blogs). The standard for inclusion always is that the review meet Wikipedia's guideline for reliable sources and that the source be independent of the artist, record company, etc. A list of some sources of professional reviews is available at WP:ALBUM#Review sites. Due to their proliferation and dubious value, lists (e.g. Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Punk Rock Albums of the Early 1980s) may not be included.

The reviews should be listed alphabetically in the Reviews field. Start each one on a new line, beginning with an asterisk (*). The first bit of info should be the name of the source (most commonly a magazine like Rolling Stone—note that magazines are italicized).

The second bit should be the rating given in the review (e.g. 4/5). The rating should use the same format as in the review, to accurately portray the score of the review. For star ratings you should use the star rating template, for example, entering {{Rating|4.5|5}}, will render: Template:Rating. For reviews by Robert Christgau you should use the Christgau review template, for example, entering {{Review-Christgau|dud|album=10000}}, will render: Template:Review-Christgau. Numerical ratings, letter grades and other non-symbol ratings should be shown using plain text in parentheses, like (3.5/10), (B) or (90%). If no rating is given in the review you should use the word (favorable) or (unfavorable) to describe the review, possibly allowing for (ambivalent), (mixed), (extremely favorable) and more, but keep it short and simple. If you cannot summarize the review, just leave this second bit blank.

The third bit is preferably a link to the actual review on an official page; it may also be a summary of the review located elsewhere (if the original publisher doesn't include it online). The link should display as the year that the review was published. If you cannot find the year of publication, the word link will suffice. If there are no online sources, you may include no link at all, but must then cite the information properly. The citation should include the full date of publication and preferably the page number.

Include no more than ten reviews. When choosing which reviews to include, consider the notability of the review source and keeping a neutral point of view. For older albums, try to include not just contemporary but also some more recent reviews.

Chronology[alilan ya ing pikuwanan]

The chronology section should link to the previous album on the left (using the Last album field) and the next album on the right (using the Next album field). The current album should be in the middle (using the This album field). Only studio albums, usually excluding live albums, compilations, singles and EPs should be included in the chronology.

The current album should always be in boldface. All album titles should be italicized. The year of release of the albums should be listed in parentheses, separated from the album title by <br /> or <br>. Wikipedia's date style guidelines recommend that years should not be linked within the chronology section. Cover images should not be included in the chronology, as that would not be fair use. For first albums the left box should be left blank. For latest albums the right box should be left blank. At least one of the two fields, previous or next, must have a value filled in, for the chronology to display.

No more than one album should be included in any of the three slots in the chronology. Additional chronologies may be used if necessary (see below). Albums released on the same day should be listed separately, ordered using the standard ordering of those albums, or alphabetically if no such standard exists.

 Template:Extra album cover 2

In special situations, additional fields may be applicable. Unused fields may be either left blank, or deleted.

{{Infobox Album <!-- See Wikipedia:WikiProject_Albums -->
| Name        = 
| Type        = 

| Longtype    = 
| Artist      = 
| Cover       = 

| Cover size  =

| Last album  =

| Next album  = 

| Misc        = 


This field can be used if you wish to include information such as the title of the film that an album is the soundtrack to, or the name of the artist that a tribute album is in honor of. The text in this field appears between the type and the word "by".

Cover size

This field should be used if the image being used is less than 200px (and you cannot locate a larger image). Fill in this field with the width of the image, using only a numeric value (i.e. "150", not "150px"). If set to "0", this hides the cover image, whether one is specified in "Cover" or the default cover image is used.


If the album has been issued with different front covers, which version the image refers to should be noted here.


This field should identify what language or languages are used in the lyrics of the album (assuming the music contains vocals). Do not forget to disambiguate and pipe link when necessary. For example, if an album's lyrics are in English and French, you would use [[English language|English]], [[French language|French]].


This field is only applicable to video albums. The name of the director should be linked to the corresponding article. If there is more than one director, the names should be delimited by commas.


This field is only applicable to compilation albums of any kind where the person or entity responsible for selecting the album's track listing is known.


This field can be used when the album belongs to an overall series that is not adequately described by the artist's name alone; in these situations, the text entered in this field replaces the artist name that would normally be displayed preceding "chronology". Examples include series of compilation albums compiled by different people, and series of soundtracks (which are often "various artists" collections).


A number of templates exist that can be inserted in the Misc field, including {{Extra album cover 2}}, {{Extra chronology 2}}, {{Singles}} and {{Audiosample}}. If you use any of these templates, don't forget to add a second set of closing brackets for the nested template.

Template:Anchor Template:Extra chronology 2

Additional chronologies are generally useful for split albums, collaborative albums, and series of albums.

{{Infobox Album <!-- See Wikipedia:WikiProject_Albums -->
| Misc        = {{Extra chronology 2
  | Artist      = 
  | Type        = 
  | Last album  = 
  | This album  = 
  | Next album  = 

The Artist field should be the artist that this additional chronology reflects, for example one of the artists on a split album. The Type field should contain the same type as the rest of the infobox. The format of the other fields is the same as the standard chronology (see above).

Template:Anchor Template:Extra album cover 2

If the album has been released with different album covers, they can be added to the infobox using this template.

{{Infobox Album <!-- See Wikipedia:WikiProject_Albums -->
| Misc        = {{Extra album cover 2
  | Upper caption  = 
  | Type           = 
  | Cover          = 
  | Lower caption  = 

The Upper caption field allows an optional header to be inserted and Lower caption allows for an optional explanatory label. For alternate covers the upper caption should be "Alternate cover" and the lower caption should mention where that cover was used (int'l release, re-release, censored original, etc.). As with the {{Extra chronology 2}} template, the Type field should contain the same type as the rest of the infobox.


The {{Singles}} template may be used as a miscellaneous addition to the infobox providing concise information about the album's single releases in sequence of their release (with the date provided also).

You may list up to twelve (12) singles per album. This infobox should be placed in the "Misc" field as shown below, using the field cases also shown below. Any unused fields may be left out. Further usage information can be found on the template page.

{{Infobox Album <!-- See Wikipedia:WikiProject_Albums -->
| Misc        = {{Singles
  | Name           = 
  | Type           = 
  | Single 1       = 
  | Single 1 date  = 
  | Single 2       = 
  | Single 2 date  = 
  | Single 3       = 
  | Single 3 date  = 
  | Single 4       = 
  | Single 4 date  = 
The name of the album.
The album type (as specified above in the section "Type").
Single #
The name of the single. Should be wikilinked to the single's article, if applicable.
Single # date
The date of single release. Should be entered in wikidate format. If the full date is unknown, just use "Month Year" or "Year".

Note that all fields are already properly formatted, so italics or quotation marks need not be entered in fields.
