This article is about a comprehensive list of different international releases of Fallen. For the album's info page, see Fallen.

The band's first debut album, Fallen, was officially released everywhere on March 4, 2003. After the release of the third single, "My Immortal", the album was reprinted in January 2004 in several countries to include the band version of the song as a bonus track. Since the album was such a worldwide success, and digital media was not quite as popular, Fallen still has the most releases out of any of the band's other albums. It also has the most cassette releases, especially in Asian countries.

Several releases remain unknown or impossibly rare to find.

Promotional Releases

A promotional recording, or promo, is a recording issued on Vinyl, 8-track, Cassette, CD, MP3, VHS, DVD, or Blu-ray and distributed free in order to promote a commercial recording. Promos are usually sent out to music radio and television stations, music journalists and reviewers, in advance of the official release date so that their reviews will appear in the current publications, and DJs. They are often distributed in plain white packaging, without the text or artwork that appears on the commercial version. Promos are distributed to expose a new product or release to those who are in a position to market it and entice the general public to purchase it. Because promos are produced in smaller quantity than releases made available to the general public, they are considered valuable collector's items. Contrary to popular belief, it is not illegal to sell promotional recordings, despite the recording industry's insistence that promos may not be sold, given away or even discarded.[1]
