Concord is a human colony.
In 2509, the Unified Earth Government ordered the launch of deep space monitoring relays from the polar region's mass driver stations. These stations would later be re-purposed for military use in order to monitor the Covenant's movements through the outer colonies.
Corporations On PlanetEdit
There are some corporations who have decided to make Concord home by setting up either industrial/commercial centres or administrative locations. This includes:
Concord’s northern polar region was unique as it had a frigid climate and unique gravitational conditions. This provided an optimal perch for Longbow station’s channel-based mass drivers.
- The Halo 4 War Games map, Longbow, is set on Concord's north pole.
- The largest of Concord's visible moons has an enormous station or city on it, which is visible from the planet's arctic regions.
