Linden Place is the first extended play by American band Mars Argo. It was released on March 20, 2011 to both Bandcamp and iTunes. 

Background

Mars Argo and Titanic Sinclair began working on the EP in 2010, as a followup to their 2009 debut album Technology Is a Dead Bird. It was finished in approximately two weeks. The songs seem to address Mars' family life and her relationship with Titanic, especially in the song "A-Okay". The title 'Linden Place' is named after a street in their hometown of Saginaw, Michigan. 

The EP was first announced in the Computer Show episodes "Art is Easy" and "Do You Ever Feel Empty?", which featured instrumental snippets of the songs "A-Okay" and "Using You" respectively. A half hour interview with Tucker Woodley was also released in promotion for the EP. After it was released, a three part documentary, Whats Your Name, began being uploaded to the official grocerybagdottv channel.

In June 2011, the single "Love in Black and White" was merged with the Linden Place EP on the band's Bandcamp page, resulting a fifth track added to said EP, which also resulted in the cover being updated.

In late 2015, the first two songs, "Formal Girl" and "A-Okay", were removed from the EP, although its price was not changed.

Singles

"Love in Black and White" was released as the lead single on June 6, 2011, three months after the original EP. "Beauty Is Empty" was released as the second single on August 28, 2012. A new version of "Using You", remixed by producer Johnny K, had a delayed release as the third and final single on December 21, 2014.
