Northlands Coliseum is a now-unused indoor arena located in Edmonton, Alberta, situated on the north side of Northlands. It was used for sports events and concerts, and was home to the Edmonton Oilers and the Edmonton Oil Kings.

Despite other proposals from parties wanting to convert the Coliseum to a sports and recreation facility, the master agreement between Oilers Entertainment Group and the city of Edmonton prohibits the city from making any further investments in the building, nor allowing it to be used as a sports or entertainment facility. Plans to repurpose the Northlands site have proposed the demolition of the venue.
