Coda is the ninth and final studio album by the English rock band Led Zeppelin, released in 1982. The album consists of eight tracks that were recorded between 1970 and 1978, some of which were intended for previous albums but were left out due to time constraints. The album was released two years after the band’s breakup, following the death of drummer John Bonham in 1980. Coda is considered a collection of odds and ends rather than a cohesive work, and it received mixed reviews from critics. However, some of the songs have been praised for their quality and diversity, such as “We’re Gonna Groove”, “I Can’t Quit You Baby”, “Wearing and Tearing” and “Darlene”. Coda is also notable for being the only Led Zeppelin album to feature tracks with all four members as songwriters.

Coda received mixed reviews from critics. Some reviewers praised the album’s diversity and the inclusion of rare tracks, while others criticized the album’s lack of cohesion and the unfinished nature of some of the tracks.
