    It appears that Linkin Park has something special in store for their fans. The band have just Tweeted the following:

    Also,103.1 The Buzz has posted the following on their website:

    It seems that each card has a code. When codes for each card are obtained, fans are expected to go to http://www.linkinpark.com/tradingcards to enter the codes. Once a code has been entered, a hint is given to find the next card. Once all 6 cards have been found and all codes have been entered, a mystery prize will be rewarded.

    What do you think this will all lead to? This certainly seems very similar to Linkin Park's memorable "Puzzle Campaign." Let's try to work together and find all of these cards and unlock the prize!

    Trading Card Locations & Results

    Rob | Mike | Chester | Joe | Brad | Phoenix

    Rob - 103.1 The Buzz
    Mike - Kerrang!
    Chester - ARTISTdirect
    Joe - LinkinPark/Message
    Brad - Ultimate Guitar
    Phoenix - Metro Lyrics

    Update: It appears the search leads to an audio download of the performance from the Transformers: Dark of the Moon premiere in Moscow, Russia on June 23rd, 2011. Thanks to LPA member, TheKillerBlue!

    After entering the code for Rob's Card, the hint given is "How do you strum it?" I'm assuming this is a hint for Brad's card.

    So pretty much on the cards, it says flip on the top right corner.
    Then it gives you the option to share it via Facebook or Twitter.
    And once you do that it gives you a code that you enter at http://www.linkinpark.com/tradingcards/

    Here's where you can find all the cards:
    http://www.linkinpark.com/tradingcards/rob-103.html
    http://www.linkinpark.com/tradingcards/mike.html
    http://www.linkinpark.com/tradingcards/joe.html
    http://www.linkinpark.com/tradingcards/chester.html
    http://www.linkinpark.com/tradingcards/brad.html
    http://www.linkinpark.com/tradingcards/phoenix.html

    Kinda would've been cool if it was the whole iTunes Festival album instead of the Moscow concert. Thanks for the album anyways, LP! :D

    Me too but what can you do? :lol:

    It's nice to see LP come up with interesting ways to keep the fans entertained. The fact they reused the linkinpark.com/message page again is awesome in itself, haha. Good idea.

    We didn't even get a chance to make funny stuff like the lazars gif or that Reanimation 2.0 gif :(.

    But thanks for making my post look pretty/updating it Joe, haha.
