Mended is the sixth overall solo studio album and second English studio album by American Latin pop singer-songwriter Marc Anthony, released on May 21, 2002 by Columbia Records and Sony Discos. It was re-released with two bonus tracks in 2003 as Mended: Bonus Tracks.

After going through several release date changes, Marc Anthony released his second English studio album, Mended in mid-2002, shortly after issuing Libre. Mended delivers more of Anthony's passionate, urgent songs of love and betrayal, destined for mass consumption.[4] The album features the hit singles "I've Got You", the Spanish version "Te Tengo Aqui", "Love Won't Get Any Better," as well as the well-known single "Tragedy." Bruce Springsteen composed a song, "I'll Stand By You Always", for Marc Anthony but the song was omitted from the album for unknown reasons.[5]

The album was certified Platinum by the CRIA in October 2002 (100,000 units).[6]
