Exo Planet #3 – The EXO'rDIUM is the third tour of South Korean-Chinese boy band EXO. The tour was officially announced on June 15, 2016 and began in Seoul's Olympic Gymnastics Arena on July 22, 2016. The first 6 dates were in South Korea, making EXO the first K-pop group to have the longest solo concert series in Seoul. During EXO's EXO'rDIUM tour, member Kai struggled with an ankle injury, making him unable to fully participate in the first three months of the tour. In February 2017, official announcements were made to announce that promotions would continue in Mexico and the United States, marking the EXO'rDIUm tour as EXO's second World Tour. It was announced on March 30, 2017 that the tour will conclude in Seoul with two encore performances on May 27 and 28, titled "Exo Planet #3 – The Exo'rdium[dot]".

Kai came on stage later to explain to fans that although he didn't break any bones, he did severely strain the ligaments in his ankle. Following EXO's first three concerts in Seoul, it was announced that Kai would continue taking time off to rest and would not be able to perform during some concert songs.

- According to Chung Joo-won from Yonhap News, "The three-hour concert set out with a special movie clip, in which the EXO members are portrayed as supernatural demi-gods who represent different elements of nature, such as fire, water, earth and woods. The fans screamed frantically as their favorite members showed up on the screen, standing high on the Egyptian Sphinx, rescuing an innocent girl in Vietnam War and protecting a little boy from hurricane."
