Landed is the band Can's seventh studio album, released in 1975. It is said to be the beginning of their poppier, less experimental era.

The album has been described as the band's attempt at glam rock, and the upbeat nature of most of the tracks do give the album this feel. The last and longest track on the album, however, "Unfinished", still has much more of an ambient feel similar to that found on earlier albums such as Future Days and Soon Over Babaluma.
