Zeus is an EP by the band British Sea Power. It was released on 4 October 2010 in the UK.

The EP, and its title track, are named after the transit van used by the band, according to singer and guitarist Yan.[1]

The band's merchandise stand at concerts also sold their own brand of beer named "Zeus".[2][3]

Contradictory to the appearance of their names, the track "Mongk" is a remix of the song "Mongk II", which was written earlier but released later.[4] Both "Mongk II" and "Cleaning Out The Rooms" appeared on the Valhalla Dancehall album, released a few months after Zeus.

The EP artwork is strongly inspired by a London Underground poster designed by Kathleen Stenning in 1925.[5]
