Continuum er et album lavet af den amerikanske guitarist John Mayer i oktober, 2006. Continuum er John Mayers tredje studiealbum. Albummet blev nomineret til fire Grammy priser: Album of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album og Best Male Pop Vocal Performance – "Waiting On The World To Change" og ""Say"". Han vandt i alt tre af priserne (Best Pop Vocal Album og Best Male Pop Vocal Performance (x2)). Ved Grammy Nomineringerne i 2008 blev sangen "Belief" nomineret i kategorien Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.
Tre singler, "Waiting On The World To Change", "Gravity" og ""Say", er blevet udgivet fra albummet. Begge singler har været på Billboard Charts. Sangen ""Say"" blev udgivet, som single i 2007 til filmen "The Bucket List". Den blev derfor først tilføjet til "Continuum" pladen senere. ""Say"" kan man kun finde online og på U.S vertionen af ""Continuum". Navnet ""Continuum" kommer af en personlig følelse, som John havde. Titlen betyder, at man er i nogle forskellige tilstande, i sit liv. Det afspejler sig i pladen, da man kan sammenligne eksempelvis ""In Repair" og ""Dreamning With A Broken Heart"", som to tilstande. På CD-covered danner ""C'et"" og ""O'et"" desuden symbolet for det Uendelig.
