Topography and ecology
Concord's polar caps dominate the northern and southern hemispheres of the planet, though the equatorial habitable band is relatively mild and pleasant. However, the hinterlands remain hostile and sparsely populated, beyond miners and hardy isolationists. This equatorial band has alpine forests and experiences seasonal changes with winter and summer months.

Originally categorized as a marginal prospect for colonization, Concord was situated at the prime confluence of multiple slipspace routes. Furthermore, extensive mineral wealth on Concord's surface was of interest to Lethbridge Industrial and settlement co-ops based out of the Sol system's Jovian colonies. Thus, in 2490, Concord was settled by the Unified Earth Government as an Outer Colony.
During the Human-Covenant War, Concord saw a population surge and investment as refugees from evacuated colonies settled on the planet. Within a few decades, outposts were transformed into cities and Lethbridge Industrial rose to become a first-tier megacorporation.
As the war began to get increasingly dire, the UEG invested heavily in the infrastructure of the planet. With refugees being settled in the various cities of the planet, a number of the original settlers moved out into the harsher wilderness of the world.
The planet was attacked by the Covenant in December 2551, and ultimately defeated. Despite the attack, Lethbridge Industrial established themselves in the megacity of Lethbridge, Corsica and continued to invest heavily in the planet's infrastructure and development.
In 2558, Concord's UNSC supply routes were disrupted by a faction of Kig-Yar pirates. In response, the Office of Naval Intelligence charged Spartan Kojo Agu with neutralizing the pirates while testing a prototype of the DEADEYE-class Mjolnir armor system. After a four-day operation, Agu succeeded in eliminating the pirates.
At some point prior to December 2559, Concord was interdicted by Guardians.
Government and society
During the planetary invasion of 2551, Concordian citizens formed their own militia force. The planet's civilian industrial mass driver facilities such as Longbow and Recurve stations were capable of limited use as anti-orbital artillery, alongside serving to house and launch detection equipment into space used to track the movement of Covenant fleets.
