"Map of the problematique" is a song by English alternative rock band Muse, released on their 2006 fourth studio album, Black Holes and Revelations. It was released as the fifth single from the album on 18 June 2007 as a digital download only.
The song has been closely compared to "Enjoy the Silence" by Depeche Mode due to its similar chord progression and arrangement. Muse frontman Matt Bellamy has also cited Depeche Mode as inspiration for the song in interviews.
The song reached number 18 in the UK singles chart in its first week of release, and was more successful than "Invincible", the previous single.
The title is a reference to a book called Limits to Growth and the Club of Rome think-tank who would create a “map of the problematique” detailing the “global problematique”— a set of likely challenges the world might face in the near future.
