Extended Play is a 1981 EP released by new wave band Pretenders. "Message of Love" and "Talk of the Town" featured on this EP were also included on their second album Pretenders II released later the same year. "Porcelain" and "Cuban Slide", outtakes from their Pretenders debut album, were included on Disc Two of the 2006 remastered edition of their debut album and on the Pirate Radio box set. The live version of "Precious" on this EP, recorded at their New York Central Park performance on 30 August 1980, has not yet been released on CD. The booklet for Disc One of the Pretenders debut album from the 2015 UK Edsel / Rhino Records box set 1979–1999 incorrectly states "Precious" (track 17) is from that Central Park performance. Instead, the box set version is from their Boston performance of 23 March 1980; it also features on Disc Two of the 2006 remastered edition of Pretenders.

This EP was released in the US but not in the UK. In the UK, the tracks were released as the singles "Message of Love" b/w "Porcelain" and "Talk of the Town" b/w "Cuban Slide". "Precious" is unique to this release.

"Message of Love" contains the line: "We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars" from the Oscar Wilde play Lady Windermere's Fan.[4]
